Chiropractic care focuses on treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. These disorders affect the general health of a person, with pain being most felt in the back, neck, joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Patients have seen significant back pain relief after only one treatment, though typically, a treatment plan is drawn up that best suits the symptoms and the specific issues of a patient.
