Your Complete Guide to Chiropractic Clinics

Chiropractic chiropractor is a form of chiropractic care that involves the manipulation and adjustment of your spine. Chiropractors are specially trained to diagnose and treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and other health problems. Information can be found here.

Chiropractors are specially trained in the field to diagnose and provide care for back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and other health problems. In a clinical setting, they will evaluate your spine's alignment using x-rays or MRI imaging before manipulating it into position through spinal manipulation or adjustment (chiropractic adjustments). Your chiropractor may also prescribe certain exercises for you to do at home that target specific areas of tension.  See here for information about What You Need to Know About Chiropractors.

Chiropractors may be helpful for people with persistent low-back pain, but there is not enough evidence that chiropractors can help neck pain.

People with persistent low-back pain may benefit from seeing a chiropractor instead of continuing routine treatments like physical therapy or standard medicine. When it comes to neck pain there is little evidence chiropractic care is any better than other treatments.

Some chiropractors are also trained to provide care for children, and many chiropractic clinics offer family chiropractic packages. However, some chiropractors recommend that pregnant women not be treated until after the pregnancy.

Chiropractor treatment can't hurt you or your baby during pregnancy but there is no evidence of benefit either. You'll need a referral from your doctor if you plan on becoming pregnant soon so make sure they know about it!
