What are the responsibilities of chiropractors?

Chiropractors treat conditions, primarily of the musculoskeletal condition through spinal manipulation and (in most states) adjunctive procedures including physical rehabilitation, nutrition, electric muscle stimulation, triggerpoint therapy, and more. The key is that chiropractors treat patient conditions without drugs or surgery. It is the first role of the chiropractor to rule out or refer out any conditions that need medical attention or that are contraindicated in chiropractic care. A chiropractic physician must decide if treatment is both safe and necessary. You do not need a referral to see a chiropractor in most states. Next a chiropractor is responsible for evaluating and treating a variety of conditions, primarily musculoskeletal. This is accomplished, for the most part, through chiropractic adjustment, exercise rehabilitation and nutritional recommendations.
