PS. This is a bit different from a chiropractor, though the term is not as well known in English. But the are essentially both working to manipulate areas for the better functioning of the whole body in a naturalistic way (eg. without meds.)

chi·ro·prac·tic ( P ) Pronunciation Key (kr-prktk)
n.
A system of therapy in which disease is considered the result of abnormal function of the nervous system. The method of treatment usually involves manipulation of the spinal column and other body structures.

[chiro- + Greek prktikos, practical; see practical.]

chiro·practor n.
