Millions of people around the world rely on chiropractic care for better healing. In fact, it is one of the most expanding choices of musculoskeletal rehabilitative treatment in the US for acute neck and low back pain. Here’s what you need to know about treating with a chiropractor.
Ideally, your doctor of chiropractic begins by understanding your condition with a consultation. This is followed by a thorough orthopedic and neurological evaluation along with any necessary diagnostics (ie. X-rays, MRI, CT, bloodwork). Then they review all of this with you so you better understand your condition and discuss your treatment options. Your treatment options should include your lifestyle, any pressing timelines (ie. upcoming international travel), etc, as these can change the treatment approach. These options may or may not include chiropractic treatment depending on the severity of the condition.
For certain cases, chiropractors rely on other forms of treatment, such as spinal decompression, ARP therapy, and cold laser therapy. These might come into play when you are leaving the country in 10 days and need to get your condition under control fast. Or if you have a chronic and stubborn condition that might require additional therapies to get under control. Athletes often need accelerated healing, and they cannot always depend on painkillers. By using therapies and manual adjustments, chiropractors can help in reducing the pain and get them game ready faster. In fact, with regular treatment, athletes can avoid some of the common and frequent injuries, which mostly happen due to excessive training and exertion.
