Have you considered the study of Chiropractic medicine?
Chiropractic medicine focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and their effects on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to pain in the back, neck and the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
