As evidence supporting the effectiveness of chiropractic continues to emerge, health care consumers are turning in record numbers to chiropractic care — a form of health care aimed primarily at enhancing a patient's overall health and well-being without the use of drugs or surgery. More than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic in 2007 for a variety of conditions, and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.

The primary tool of modern chiropractors is spinal manipulation or, in the parlance of the profession, spinal adjusting. Chiropractors also utilize a variety of physical medicine and rehabilitation approaches, along with nutritional advice to strengthen and balance the body. They may utilize traditional modalities such as ultrasound, diathermy, microcurrent stimulation, laser therapy, traction, and heat and cold applications in addition to spinal manipulation. Although chiropractors may be best known for treating back and neck pain, their techniques also show promise in treating myriad other conditions.
