Chiropractic aims to restore the function of the musculoskeletal system through a complex manipulation exercises and movements. The main therapeutic methods are stretching the joints and spine (traction), the restoration of range of motion (mobilization), a fast, painless movement of small amplitude in the direction of the passive movement restrictions (manipulation), the elimination of abnormal muscle tension (relaxation).
