ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to chiropractic. Modern research and the personal experience of eminent authorities in manipulative medicine are in most cases confirming the scientific basis of chiropractic. The definition of chiropractic is a system of treating diseases by manipulation, mainly of the vertebrae. It is based on the theory that most disorders can be traced to the misalignment of the spine with consequent malfunctions of nerves and muscle throughout the body. Agree with it or not, the essence is deemed to be manipulation of the vertebral column, with intent to improve health via the nervous system.
