Chiropractic is an emerging health care profession that has its root as far back as 460 B.C.
Over the centuries, the chiropractic profession has moved and adapted through scientific changes; now, chiropractors practice in over 100 countries in all regions of the world, most prevalent in North America, Australia and parts of Europe.
The academic chiropractic curriculum is intense and focuses on understanding the musculoskeletal system and how structure relates to its functions.
At present, chiropractic research offers significant evidence of its effectiveness in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions such as lower back pain.
Various countries in Europe have gained Chiropractic Legislation that protects the profession, its practitioners and the patients using it. New guidelines for the treatment of lower back pain have, in fact, been published (British NHS and World Health Organization) that recommend chiropractic care as more effective and safer than traditional medicine for the treatment of certain musculoskeletal conditions.
