Chiropractic physicians are established members of the mainstream medical team. They treat problems involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage and nervous system. Chiropractic physicians can perform soft tissue therapies, prescribe corrective exercises, and safely manipulate the spine or joints to help you avoid surgery and medication. Chiropractic physicians can prescribe home therapy. Additionally, they may offer joint bracing or muscle taping for support or to improve overall function. Nutritional advice may also be offered for weight control to reduce joint pain and improve posture. You may benefit from the chiropractor’s “hands-on” approach to relieve chronic pain from old injuries or for acute pain from new injuries. Take this opportunity to get your questions answered as our expert discusses how to choose a chiropractor, what to expect from your visit, and chiropractic treatment for pain.
At the Center for Integrative Medicine, our chiropractic physicians consider the “whole patient” and not just the area that hurts. They receive extra training in exercise prescriptions, corrective exercises, advanced nutrition, and dietary and lifestyle intervention. Wellness chiropractic physicians are specially trained to incorporate chiropractic treatment into complex medical care, working with your primary care doctor and specialists.
