Doctors of chiropractic are well trained and positioned as the first option for drug-free, non-invasive, evidence-based and effective back and general neuro-musculoskeletal pain management. Chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient to help relieve pain and improve function. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient by isolating the pain source, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non invasive therapies and provide lifestyle counseling.
While spinal manipulation is one aspect of chiropractic, doctors of chiropractic also provide a substantial amount of other care and counsel to patients. Modalities such as heat, cold, electrical stimulation, lasers, soft tissue techniques, acupuncture and full rehabilitation of injuries or pain syndromes are commonplace in chiropractic practice. Therapeutic exercises, ergonomic and fitness recommendations are usually made to patients, as well as advice about nutrition, healthy lifestyle habits and relaxation techniques.
Chiropractic care can help with sport related and non-sport related pain and dysfunction as well as provide symptomatic relief for patients suffering from chronic conditions.
