Benefits of seeing a Chiropractor
French et. al. noted in 2013 that of an Australian cross-sectional study of general practice attendees that Chiropractors are the most commonly consulted complementary health profession.
The most common conditions treated by Chiropractors include back pain, neck pain and headaches. However, modern Chiropractors look after a broader range of complaints such as shoulder pain, knee pain, hip pain and relief from pregnancy-related backache.
