Is Chiropractic a bone or a muscle?


Chiropractic care is a healthcare profession that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, particularly those related to the spine. While chiropractors may treat conditions related to bones and muscles, chiropractic care is not exclusively focused on either bones or muscles alone.

The musculoskeletal system consists of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues that work together to support and move the body. Chiropractors use a hands-on approach to treat conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, primarily the spine, through spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, exercises, and other interventions.

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and sports injuries. They work to restore proper function to the body’s musculoskeletal system and improve overall health and well-being.

So, while chiropractic care is not exclusively focused on bones or muscles, it is a form of healthcare that is concerned with the health and function of the musculoskeletal system as a whole.
