Chiropractors diagnose, treat and help prevent problems related to the muscles, joints and nerves of the body which affect general health and well-being. As it is a primary care health profession a referral from your GP is not needed for treatment from a chiropractor.

No medication or surgery

Many chiropractors will use their hands to manipulate (adjust) the spine, joints and soft tissues. This means chiropractic care does not involve the use of medication or surgery.
