What is a chiropractor? A chiropractor is a trained medical professional who sets the focus of care on neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues centering around the spine. A chiropractor works to maximize the health of the body through spinal manipulation and adjustment, joint care, and related treatment procedures.
Chiropractic is a philosophy, art, and science. A diagnosis is made through observation and testing, and then treatment is performed based on training and experience. This is a similar process used by a medical doctor. The main dissimilarity is that some doctors may treat patients with surgery and drugs so as to deal with signs of pain and illness.
Chiropractors (licensed healthcare professionals) are highly trained physicians that practice a unique system of healthcare tailored towards preserving and optimizing health by the use of manual treatment to restore proper neurological and musculoskeletal function.
After care is established, patients may choose to receive a treatment once a week or even every other month. Initial care may be more frequent as the body begins to recognize the process of healing. How can patients begin to determine what their needs may actually entail?
Should I see a physical therapist or chiropractor? Well, that depends somewhat on the reason that you are seeking care. While it is not uncommon to only receive one type of care, each has strengths that complement the other. Both chiropractic and physical therapy use techniques that work to help the body heal itself.
