What does a chiropractic practice do?

At a chiropractic practice, a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) evaluates each patient using physical examination and diagnostic testing. The goal of this evaluation is to assess the health of the spine and identify any misalignments. Misalignments of the spine, also known as subluxations, can cause serious problems in the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and nerves in and around the spine. 

When misalignments or other problems are found, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan that helps reduce pain, restore mobility, and improve functioning. The treatment plan will include a recommended number of visits and visit frequency. The chiropractor will review the recommended treatment plan with you and answer any questions that you may have.

Is there a difference between a chiropractor and a chiropractic physician?

Many people mistakenly believe that chiropractors are not actually doctors, but this is not true! Chiropractors and chiropractic physicians are the exact same thing. Chiropractors study the same sciences that MDs do and are trained to treat a wide variety of conditions. Chiropractors focus on non-invasive treatment modalities and spinal adjustments to improve the health of their patients while avoiding prescription drugs and surgeries.
