Chiropractors focus on the treatment and prevention of disease, promotion of public health, and a wellness approach to patient health care. The practice and procedures used by chiropractors are based on the academic and clinical training received through accredited chiropractic colleges. Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems such as headaches, joint, neck and low back pain, sciatica, spinal disc conditions, sprains, strains, and more (we’ll link to larger list here as well). Chiropractors are also trained to treat a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, digestive disorders and osteoarthritis.
Besides treating back and neck pain, chiropractors use spinal decompression, manipulation, massage therapy, and state-of-the-art physiotherapy modalities, like ultrasound, cold light laser and electrical stimulation, to treat conditions such as herniated discs, rib pain, pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder tendonitis, tennis elbow, arch and foot pain, plantar fasciitis, and more.
Women can also benefit from visits to a chiropractor during pregnancy to relieve stress on their body from the weight of the baby. Regular visits to a chiropractor during pregnancy can reduce the incidence of pain in the lower back and between the shoulder blades, and minimize or eliminate headaches and nausea.
Under normal circumstances, chiropractic adjustments are painless. In some cases, inflammation from trauma, such as a car accident, can cause some discomfort during chiropractic adjustments.
