Here is a good article that explains what chiropratic is and what chiropractors do. Beyond Bad Backs: What Chiropractic Is and How It Can Help You
The following is an excerpt from the article.
“Chiropractic is based on the philosophy that the body is a self-healing, try self-regulating and self-developing organism and that your nervous system is the master system and controller of your body. If you cut your finger, mind it heals. You don’t have to take anything or do anything to make that happen. If you were to cut the finger of a dead person, see healing would not occur. Life heals, it is as simple as that.
You live your life through your nervous system. It is the master system and controller of your body. Right now your heart is beating, kidneys are working, liver is functioning, brain chemicals are flowing all without you having to think about it. This is because your nervous system is coordinating it all and making it happen. What would happen if there was interference with the function of your nervous system? It would interfere with you body’s ability to heal and regulate.
An important term and concept that every person should know and understand is vertebral subluxation. Vertebral subluxation, or subluxation for short, refers to a mechanical problem in the spine that relates to nerve interference. When a person is subluxated, it reduces their ability to heal, regulate and express well-being. Like cavities in teeth, subluxations are very common in our culture. It is the primary goal of the chiropractor to detect and correct subluxations so that you can improve healing, regulation, and general well-being
A limited nervous system means limited wellness. If we want to optimally create higher levels of wellness, we then need to remove nervous system interference as a part of the process. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to do this. Millions of people, from infants to seniors over 100 years old, benefit from chiropractic adjustments every year.”
