Chiropractic care treat conditions relating to bones, joints, nerves and muscles.
Chiropractic care is widely used for back pain and related conditions. Chiropractic care can also provide relief for:
- Neck pain
- Pain from an accident or injury
- Muscle spasms
- Headaches related to tension or strain
- Pinched Nerves
- Other problems related to spine, muscles, or bones.
Doctors of chiropractic use natural methods instead of drugs and surgery. They asses how the spine, muscles and nerves are working together. To determine the best course of treatment they will take a medical history and conduct an exam. The exam may include an assessment of posture, x-rays, or other imaging.
Chiropractors will often treat pain with manual adjustment, or manipulation. The intent of a chiropractic adjustment is to improve the function of nerves and joints to reduce pain and aid recovery. It may be used with other forms of treatment.
