A doctor whose emphasis is on removing interference with the function of the nervous system caused by the spine. Chiropractors are especially interested in finding the cause of a symptom or disease and correcting it. In many cases, the symptom or disease results from interference with the proper functioning of the nervous system. This interference is usually produced by a bone in the spinal column irritating or placing pressure on a spinal nerve root. When this occurs, it results in malfunction of the organ controlled by that nerve and/or pain. The primary method of treatment is adjustment (see Adjustment) of the bones in the spinal column, but chiropractors may also utilize physical therapy modalities, food supplements, exercise, dietary and other lifestyle changes to assist healing and help maintain health. Drugs and surgery are not utilized by chiropractors.

A doctor who has received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree; a doctor of chiropractic or D.C.
Doctor trained in the science, art and philosophy of manipulation (adjustment) of the human body. Chiropractic evaluation and treatment is directed at evaluating the cause of the problem through structural analysis of the musculo-skeletal systems of the body. Abnormal function of these systems can lead to abnormal function of the body's nervous system, which in turn may effect function of other systems in the body. Treatment is then rendered with the goal of restoring normal function via manipulating (adjusting) areas exhibiting abnormal structure.
