Chiropractor: The chiropractor is a health care professional that focused on the diagnosis and the treatment of neuromuscular disorders, through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine.
Conditions Treated by Chiropractor
Many chiropractors treat only conditions that related to the spine, such as –
- Lower back pain and/or leg pain (sciatica)
- Cervical Spondylosis
- Arthritic pain
- Repetitive strains
- Sports injuries
- Car accident injuries
Chiropractic is primarily utilized as a pain palliation alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. It is sometimes utilized in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Some chiropractors treat a wider range of conditions, including asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), infant colic, and many others.
Is chiropractic effective?
There is good evidence that manual therapy that may include spinal manipulation – as practiced by chiropractors – can be an efficacious treatment for sedulous(persistent) lower back pain. Conventional treatments for sedulous lower back pain include painkillers, exercise, and physical therapy.
