Chiropractors are trained to analyze and treat the spine. They also work on other parts of the body, like extremities, but the majority of their work is done in regards to the spine, and how it relates to the body. Chiropractors main goal is maintaining and promoting spinal health. Spinal health means keeping vertebrae moving as smoothly as possible. When vertebrae are not moving the way in which they are intended they can irritate the nerves and cause pain and tremendous discomfort.
