Chiropractic and Osteopathic Medicine
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. Chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients via exercise and other therapies.
Osteopathy is a system of complementary medicine involving the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the skeleton and musculature. Although osteopathy takes a holistic approach to medical care, it also embraces modern medical knowledge, including use of medication, surgery and radiation.
