When you have received a personal injury, you need relief from the pain you are feeling. If the pain is in your back, the chiropractor will evaluate your condition to determine if the root cause is a condition in your back or somewhere else. Pain is not always located in the area that is affected by misalignment.

He may use his hands or an instrument. It depends on the patient and their condition.
