For chiropractors who market themselves as holistic health care practitioners, as well as those who believe in traditional principles of chiropractic, the modality can be more than just manipulation of the spine.
Chiropractors help relieve pressure from the spine to promote communication between the brain and vital organs. Chiropractic can also support the natural healing process through several therapies:
- Exercise and wellness
- Herbs and supplements
- Other bioenergetic modalities
Many health insurance plans now cover chiropractic services for athletes, chronically ill patients and general health maintenance.
