Doctors of Chiropractic are considered by some to be the “specialists of neuro-musculoskeletal healthcare”. What does this mean? This means that chiropractors specialize in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of conditions that relate to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints of the spine and extremities.
Chiropractors treat conditions related to, but not limited to: postural dysfunction, repetitive strain injury, pain related to arthritis, sport-related injuries, pre/post surgical recovery, concussions and various other biomechanical conditions.
As primary health care practitioners, chiropractors are qualified to provide a diagnosis for your condition. This diagnosis will guide your treatment protocol and determine what type of therapy will work best for your condition. As such, even if the chiropractor cannot help you they can refer you to the healthcare professional who can.
