Chiropractors use their hands to adjust the joints back to alignment (the clicking sound). A misaligned joint can compromise the healthy function of the body. If a spinal joint is misaligned it will compromise the function of the nerves related to it, this will have an effect on the whole body. This is why chiropractors can help so many different conditions.
