Chiropractic is from Greek words meaning done by hand. It is a system of healing or therapy that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. The method of treatment commonly involves manipulation of the spinal column and other body structures. It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems are all functioning properly.

Yes, absolutely. Just make sure they're certified and everything, you know. If the chiropractor in question operates out of the back of an alley somewhere, you should probably stay away. Seriously though, chiropractors are safe. They go through A LOT of education and training to make sure they are...

This sounds like an issue with the costovertebral or costotransverse joint (where the ribs articulate with the vertebrae). A visit to an osteopathic or chiropractic physician would be advisable to ensure that it is nothing more serious. If the problem is, as I presume, a costovertebral issue, you...
