How do Chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors will use various modalities and techniques to treat neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. They include: cold and heat therapy, cross-friction therapy, dry needling, immobilization and kineseotapeing, massage, rehabilitation, stretch, mobilization and primarily gentle chiropractic manipulation/adjusting technique.

Further diagnostic testing such as blood tests, Ultrasound scans and X-rays may be requested by a chiropractor to obtain more information. Patients will also receive advice on exercise, correct ergonomic posture, diet, lifestyle and stress management. If deemed necessary, a patient will be referred to the appropriate medical professional if the condition falls outside the realm of chiropractic care.
