Chiropractic physicians are established members of the mainstream medical team. They treat problems involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage and nervous system. Chiropractic physicians can perform soft-tissue therapies, prescribe corrective exercises, and safely manipulate the spine or joints to help you potentially avoid surgery and medication. You may benefit from the chiropractor’s “hands on” approach to relieve chronic pain from old injuries or for acute pain from new injuries, including:
- Neck or back pain
- Pelvic pain
- Shoulder, elbow or wrist pain
- Knee, hip or ankle pain
What do wellness chiropractic physicians do differently?
Wellness chiropractic physicians consider the “whole patient” and not just the area that hurts. They receive extra training in exercise prescriptions, corrective exercises, advanced nutrition, and dietary and lifestyle intervention. Wellness chiropractic physicians are specially trained to incorporate chiropractic treatment into complex medical care, working with your primary care doctor and specialists.
