Q: What conditions do chiropractors treat?
A: Chiropractors are experts trained in the neuromusculoskeletal system. They diagnose and treat disorders of the spine and other body joints by adjusting the spinal column or through other corrective manipulation. Chiropractors provide conservative management of neuromusculoskeletal disorders including, but not limited to, back, neck and head pain (over 90 percent of conditions treated). They also advise patients on corrective exercises, lifestyle,and nutrition.

Q: What happens during a treatment?
A: During your first visit, the chiropractor will want to know about your health history as well as your current complaint. Your home and work life as well as your level of physical activity may also affect your health, so do not be surprised when asked questions about these.
Although chiropractors use their hands for most treatments, they also use other methods such as heat, light, specialize adjusting instruments, ultrasound, electrotherapy, personalized exercise programs, muscle testing and balancing. Your chiropractor can also give you information and guidance on how you can stay healthy through proper nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
