What is Chiropractic Health Care?
Chiropractic physicians focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Chiropractors can treat musculoskeletal pain such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain in the legs and arms, headaches, migraines, and more.
Chiropractors utilize conservative care to aid in pain management for patients that is hands-on and drug-free. Chiropractors are trained in pain management techniques such as rehabilitative exercises, lifestyle counseling, and more.
Chiropractors may assess their patients using a clinical examination, diagnostic imaging, laboratory (blood) testing, and more to determine an appropriate treatment strategy for each patient on an individualized basis. If a patient is not a candidate for chiropractic treatment, our chiropractor will refer the patient to the appropriate health care provider based on their condition.
