Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic medicine focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves – and the patient’s health. Chiropractors believe that health can be improved and preserved by making adjustments to these structures, particularly to the spinal column. They do not prescribe drugs or perform surgical procedures, although they do refer patients for these services if they are medically indicated.

What does a Chiropractor do?

  • Diagnoses and treats neuromuscular disorders
  • Manually adjusts spine, ligaments, and joints to relieve pain, restore function, and prevent severe health problems

Please note that Idaho State University does not have a chiropractic program, however Idaho State University is a great institution to attend for preparing to apply to chiropractic schools.
