Chiropractic is a branch of health care which focuses on manipulation of the body as the best mode of care and treatment of many injuries and illnesses. It emphasizes the interrelatedness of the body parts as a whole set, but especially as they relate to the function of the nervous system. Since the majority of the body's organs are innervated by nerves which enter or leave the spine, a major emphasis is on the correct structure and function of the spine and the body joints. Chiropractors consider themselves to be primary care providers - persons who are a point of first contact by a person seeking relief from some malfunction. It is expected that they will refer some of their patients to allopathic physicians (the type people are referring to when they speak of "doctors") for treatment of conditions beyond the scope of chiropractic methods.

Sources of Additional Information Significant Points Download the PDF Nature of the Work About this section Top Occupational therapists help people improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments. They work with individuals who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling. They also help them to develop, recover, or maintain daily living and work skills. Occupational therapists not only help clients improve basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, but also compensate for permanent loss of function. Their goal is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives. For those with permanent functional disabilities, such as spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, or muscular dystrophy, therapists instruct in the use of adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs, splints, and aids for eating and dressing. They also design or make special equipment needed at home or at work. Therapists develop computer-aided adaptive equipment and teach clients with severe limitations how to use it. This equipment enables clients to communicate better and to control other aspects of their environment.
