What does a Chiropractor do?


chiropractic manipulation or 'adjustments' are gentle manipulations delivered to the joints to help restore movement to the spinal column.
Dr Martin Krüger examining the cervical spine.

Chiropractors are the only health professionals that specifically look for and correct vertebral subluxations. A subluxation is a spinal vertebra that has become stuck or restricted. It is a phenomenon that cannot be diagnosed with technology and needs to be done by a specialised examination of the spine. Chiropractors study at a university and require a 5 year Masters Degree in Chiropractic to practice in South Africa. ‘Chiropractic’ translated into its original greek origin means ‘done by hand’. So Chiropractors find and fix spinal vertebrae that have become stuck, with their hands. Chiropractors restore movement. Simple hey?
