CHIROPRACTOR

Written by

A person who practises chiropractic – mainly a system of physical manipulations of minor displacements of the spinal column. These minor displacements (see SUBLUXATION) of the spine are believed to affect the associated or neighbouring nerves and so cause malfunctions of the muscles throughout the body. By manipulating the affected part of the spinal column the patient’s complaint, whatever it may be – for example, backache – is relieved.
