Information about Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a natural health care focusing on the the spine through the nervous system. Chiropractors perform spinal adjustments to correct misalignment of the spine. This is to improve function and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Chiropractic is practiced and regulated as an independent health care profession in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK etc. The World Health Organization (WHO) has published guidelines on basic training and safety in chiropractic to regulate chiropractic services within these health care systems around the world.

Chiropractic treatments typically focus on musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headache and joint pain but may focus on other areas including the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, improvement of posture and health maintenance. There have been many studies that show the safety and cost-effectiveness of chiropractic care for back pain.

As chiropractic is not regulated in Japan, we recommend the following list to find qualified chiropractors who completed the WHO standard chiropractic education. The Japanese national health insurance doesn’t cover the cost of care, but some private insurance companies from overseas will.
