A chiropractor is a health care professional trained to diagnose and treat neuromuscular disorders, focusing on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.

Chiropractors typically seek to improve a patient’s bodily function and reduce pain, which may have been caused by arthritic changes to the spine. Chiropractors often educate patients about exercise, ergonomics, and other lifestyle changes that could help treat back conditions and arthritis-related pain.
