Chiropractic care is the system of integrative non-invasive medicine which holds that certain musculoskeletal disorders result from nervous system dysfunction arising from misalignment of the spine and joints. Treatment focuses on manual adjustment or manipulation of the spinal vertebrae to correct nervous system dysfunction which contributes to musculoskeletal disorders.
There is a misconception that chiropractors only treat spine conditions. While it is true that the majority of the patients that seek chiropractic care is for injuries of the neck and lower back, we are very effective in RESTORING FUNCTION of other areas of the body such as shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.
In fact, a published article titled “Evidence-Based Practice and Chiropractic Care” concluded that “The most common conditions treated by chiropractors are back pain, neck pain, and headaches. The best available evidence supports manipulative therapy as a reasonable option for many of these complaints. Manipulative therapy also holds potential value for the treatment of a variety of extremity conditions. Chiropractic practice is far broader than spinal manipulation alone, typically including other evidenced-based interventions such as massage, exercise therapy, and activity modification advice.
