There are three main types of chiropractic: spinal, manual, and functional.
Spinal chiropractors focus on the spine and its surrounding muscles and ligaments. Manual chiropractors use their hands to massage and adjust vertebrae and other joints.
Functional chiropractors use a variety of techniques to address issues such as back pain, headaches, neck pain, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and menstrual cramps.

How do all of these different types of chiropractors relate to one another?
Chiropractors are a type of physician that focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to adjust and manipulate the spine, which is believed to improve the function of the surrounding muscles and joints.
Chiropractors differ from other physicians in that they typically do not perform surgery, prescribe medications, or provide psychological services.
Chiropractors are licensed by state governments and can be found in virtually every type of health care setting. They are usually employed by health maintenance organizations (HMOs), private insurance companies, and military hospitals.
Why do we need chiropractors?
Chiropractors are doctors who specialize in the treatment of spinal cord and nerve injuries. This is done by manipulating the spine using manual and electrical techniques. Chiropractors believe that spinal cord and nerve injuries are caused by misalignments in the spine that can lead to pain, dysfunction, and even disability.
Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who use spinal manipulation and other techniques to treat patients with pain. Chiropractors work on both adults and children, and they often specialize in a specific area of chiropractic such as sports chiropractic, pediatric chiropractic, or joint-based chiropractic.
