Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine[1] that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.[2] It is generally categorized as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM),[1] a characterization that many chiropractors reject.[3] Although chiropractors have many attributes of primary care providers, chiropractic has more of the attributes of a medical specialty like dentistry or podiatry.[4] The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, including manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues; treatment also includes exercises and health and lifestyle counseling.[5] Traditional chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation interferes with the body's innate intelligence,[6] a vitalistic notion that brings ridicule from mainstream health care.[7] A large number of chiropractors want to separate themselves from the traditional vitalistic concept of innate intelligence.[8]

D.D. Palmer founded chiropractic in the 1890s, and his son B.J. Palmer helped to expand it in the early 20th century.[9] It has two main groups: "straights", now the minority, emphasize vitalism, innate intelligence and spinal adjustments, and consider vertebral subluxations to be the cause of all disease; "mixers", the majority, are more open to mainstream views and conventional medical techniques, such as exercise, massage, and ice therapy.[8] Chiropractic is well established in the U.S., Canada and Australia[10] and is the third largest health profession, behind medicine and dentistry.[11] It overlaps with other manual-therapy professions, including massage therapy, osteopathy, and physical therapy.[12] Most who seek chiropractic care do so for low back pain.[13]

Throughout its history, chiropractic has been controversial.[14][15] For most of its existence it has battled with mainstream medicine, sustained by pseudoscientific ideas such as subluxation and innate intelligence[16] that are not based on solid science.[17] Despite the general consensus of public health professionals regarding the benefits of vaccination, among chiropractors there are significant disagreements over the subject,[18] which has led to negative impacts on both public vaccination and mainstream acceptance of chiropractic.[19] The American Medical Association called chiropractic an "unscientific cult"[20] and boycotted it until losing an antitrust case in 1987.[21] Chiropractic has developed a strong political base and sustained demand for services; in recent decades, it has gained more legitimacy and greater acceptance among medical physicians and health plans in the U.S.,[21] and evidence-based medicine has been used to review research studies and generate practice guidelines.[22]

Many studies of treatments used by chiropractors have been conducted, often with conflicting results.[17][23] Manual therapies commonly used by chiropractors are effective for the treatment of low back pain,[24][25] and might also be effective for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy,[26][27] neck pain,[28] some forms of headache,[29][30] and some extremity joint conditions.[31][32] The efficacy and cost-effectiveness of maintenance chiropractic care are unknown.[33] Chiropractic care is generally safe when employed skillfully and appropriately.[34] Spinal manipulation is frequently associated with mild to moderate adverse effects, with serious or fatal complications in rare cases.[35][36] A systematic review found that the risk of death from manipulations to the neck outweighs the benefits.[37] This has no relevance to manipulations performed below the cervical region
