Chiropractic Medicine which is also known to be the complementary as well as an alternative medicinal way or treatment that focuses on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the mechanical disorders and conditions of our musculoskeletal system. It is also concerned about the effects of such mechanical ailments to the functioning of our nervous system, moreover to our overall health.

The key treatment of Chiropractic Medicine is the use of manual therapy in adjusting the spine and joints. It also uses manipulation of the soft tissues.

Founded by D.D. Palmer in 1895, a resident the USA, Chiropractic Medicine has been known to be used in more than one hundred countries. Though widely practiced, the use of Chiropractic Medicine is still controversial amongst the scientific as well as medical communities.

This also leads to some chiropractors that utilize the concept of Neuromusculoskeletal approach as compared to the metaphysical explanation. With this, two groups has been formed, "straights" chiropractors, and the other is "mixers."

To be a Chiropractor, he should get a degree in Chiropractic Medicine. Usually, Chiropractors implement treatment combinations, in which, it becomes personalized to the patient's needs. Chiropractors integrate their treatment into a management plan, which also deals with the health as well as the lifestyle of their client.

At present, manipulative therapy together with osteopathic and chiropractic medicine are being used.
