The chiropractic exam and treatment involve assessing the musculoskeletal system and looking for areas of hypomobility. When an area of hypomobility is found an adjustment is applied to the area to improve mobility in the joint. Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial in helping with musculoskeletal pain and can be beneficial for all patients ranging in age from newborn to senior patients.
