Chiropractic care is an important resource in our ever-changing healthcare system. It helps to treat all medical conditions associated with musculoskeletal and nervous system dysfunction. However, chiropractic care is not limited to treating lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, or hand pain. Best Chiropractic of Hudson, WI offers a wide range of services. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding the conditions treated by chiropractic care.
What are Common Conditions Treated by Chiropractic Care?
Even people unfamiliar with chiropractic care know it is an ideal treatment option for lower back pain. However, many do not realize that chiropractic care is a great choice in treating other medical conditions and musculoskeletal pain. Chiropractors believe aligning your spine will help the body to recover faster from sciatica, hamstring strains, neck pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, headaches, and hand pain. All the chiropractic care treatment options available are designed to reduce the pain inside your muscles, joints, and ligaments. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will identify the root cause of your pain and immobility before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Do Chiropractors Work with General Practitioners?
At times, chiropractors may work with general practitioners to assist in treating a patient with a specific medical condition. After a thorough physical examination and standard musculoskeletal testing, both doctors will confer and decide if chiropractic care is the right course of treatment. Most general practitioners will ask for a consultation on cases (unresponsive back pain, neck pain, and musculoskeletal impingements) where their patient has not responded to the initial treatment. These medical conditions require co-management between each doctor for the most effective possible medical care.
What Type of Pain Does a Chiropractor Treat?
Chiropractic care is known for caring for patients with lower back pain, neck pain, and migraine headaches. Our chiropractor can also treat sports injuries such as shoulder pain, foot pain, hand pain, and other conditions involving an athlete's muscles and ligaments. A series of chiropractic adjustments can improve the mobility of your spine, eliminating your pain and reducing the likelihood of it returning in the future.
