The doctor of chiropractic is a specialist in spinal musculoskeletal disorders. He or she is expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many musculoskeletal injuries that may occur on the job, in accidents, sports and in your daily life.
Upon injury, the individual often alters the normal position and function of the spinal vertebrae.
This is called nerve impingement syndrome.
Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal motion, function and alignment thus minimizing pain and discomfort. Gentle manipulative therapy or “adjustment” is effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status. The doctor of chiropractic can also provide guidance with advice designed to reduce work-related injuries, proper lifting procedures and therapeutic stretching exercises.
