For Acute and Chronic Pain
Chiropractic is the third largest area of medicine that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuro-musculo-skeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
A Comprehensive Approach
In many cases, such as lower back pain or headaches, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team (physical therapist, massage therapist, etc..), chiropractic care will complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. By starting chiropractic care immediately in your treatment you can reduce the amount of scar tissue formed, improve healing and treat the cause of your pain not just the symptoms of pain.
