A chiropractor is a doctor who specializes in conservative management of musculoskeletal (muscles, ligaments, bones and joints) and neurological conditions including sports-related injuries, chronic or degenerative conditions, work-related injuries, injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents, or simply general aches and pains. Chiropractors also specialize in injury prevention and optimizing biomechanics to enhance performance and improve overall quality of life. Chiropractors are trained to use multiple imaging modalities such as x-ray, CT, MRI and musculoskeletal ultrasound to evaluate for injury and track the progress of rehabilitation.
Your first appointment will begin with your chiropractor taking a comprehensive history covering everything from your current complaint, previous injuries and illnesses, family history, and lifestyle factors in order to get a complete picture of your health. There will then be a thorough examination to determine the root cause of the condition and other factors which may be contributing to your complaint. From here we work together to formulate the best treatment plan for you moving forward, uniquely tailored to suite your needs and preferences and designed to help you achieve your goals whether it be getting back to your sport or activity, working without nagging pain or discomfort, or simply moving and feeling better. Your treatment will consist of a variety of evidence-based therapies.
