Chiropractors look at how the body moves as a whole being. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to recognize a stroke in progress and also what to avoid after a stroke. Chiropractic care, using low force movements, to regions of the body below the stroke can offer a conservative recovery plan for the patient.
