    The Manghihilot is our native chiropractor and some of them have the high level of being a bone setter for fractures. It is usually the sprain especially for the athletes. When my brother had an accident on the horse, a Manghihilot named Mang Tura treated him and saved him from surgery of a fracture.

    The Manghihilot plays a big part in the Philippine culture. His job is not only for the sprain and ligament problems but also for children who have no appetite. I was sent to a Manghihilot when I was 4 for my poor appetite. After the massage, I started to eat well. The art of hilot is not learned because they say it is natural or God-given.
