The nurse is speaking at a community meeting about personal responsibility for health promotion.

A participant asks about chiropractic treatment for illnesses.
What should be the focus of the nurse’s response?

  • A- Electrical energy fields
  • B- Spinal column manipulation
  • C- Mind-body balance
  • D- Exercise of joints

Answer: B: Spinal column manipulation

The theory underlying chiropractic is that interference with transmission of mental impulses between the brain and body organs produces diseases. Such interference is caused by misalignment of the vertebrae. Manipulation reduces the subluxation.
