Chiropractors address biomechanical function, not just pain. Yes, chiropractic care has shown to relieve common back conditions and the pain related to those issues. However, more important is the cause of the pain and addressing the biomechanical functionality of the body. Chiropractors identify dysfunction and help patients work towards proper function and alignment.
Chiropractors are known for their success in treatment of the spine, but better success and results can be found by realizing the intricate way that all parts of the body are connected. Specialized treating physicians have extensive training and background in rehabilitation of extremity injuries and dysfunction. They also address nutrition and its relationship to healing and restoring function of the body.
