I removed the word "Chiropractics, because no such form exists. There is only Chiropractic, ( the practice) and Chiropractor (the practitioner). There is also Chiropath, and Chiropraxie, which are arcane forms.

I also added a redirect to Chiropractic where there was a page for the non-existent form.

How is chiropractic a noun? I'm not disputing that it's widely used as a noun, but maybe there could be a note about the etymology? It does appear to have an adjectival form.70.249.209.141 00:39, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Many adjectives have become nouns in English. The word biceps was originally an adjective, as were the modern names of most muscles. So were the names of the geologic periods, such as Pennsylvanian and Jurassic. This shift is not all that unusual in English. --EncycloPetey 05:00, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
