What Is a Chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.
Most chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients as well as educate them on how they can account for their own health via exercise, ergonomics, and other therapies to treat back pain.
Chiropractic Medicine embraces the whole health picture of each patient. Chiropractors use various non-surgical treatments such as Chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massage, cupping, therapeutic exercise, ultrasound, electric stimulation, traction, and hydrotherapy table. These treatments are used to treat patients with certain types of chronic conditions such as bulging discs, osteoporosis, back pain, headaches, scoliosis, sciatica, jaw pain, etc.
I hear your story and take a detailed history. To that end, I create an individualized treatment plan including Continued Care aimed at achieving the functional goals we set together.
Assessment & Diagnosis forms an integral part of my approach to treating the whole body, not just a complaint in isolation. This service is fundamental to ensuring my patients’ long-term health and wellness.
