Chiropractors conduct an examination of a patient, looking at the spine’s position and muscle reflexes. They also perform tests and may take x -rays to diagnose the patient’s condition, then come up with a treatment plan and monitor progress.
Chiropractors do not prescribe pain medication. Instead, they rely on and assist the body’s ability to heal itself. A chiropractor’s primary therapy is spinal manipulation where they use hands or instruments to apply force to a joint in the spine, moving the joint in a specific direction for better alignment.
In addition to spinal manipulation, chiropractors may include other treatments such as:
• Dry Needling
• Elastic Taping
• Lazer therapy
• Ultrasound therapy
• Shockwave therapy
• Hot and cold treatment
• Exercise
• Nutritional advice
• Ergonomic guidance
• Postural correction
