4 Conditions That Chiropractors Treat

By using techniques of hands-on spinal manipulation, chiropractors can bring the musculoskeletal structure of the body to a proper alignment enabling the body to start healing itself.

Chiropractors place the letters ‘DC’ before their name after completing an undergraduate degree and 4 years of chiropractic school.

Conditions that can be treated by chiropractors are:

  • Migraines and tension headaches: Chiropractors use stretching exercises along with ice and heat packs on the back and neck to get rid of the pain. The spine may become misaligned due to a bad posture which can be fixed by the chiropractor as well.

    “According to American Chiropractic Association (ACA), chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children) annually.”

  • Fibromyalgia: The disorder where most parts of the musculoskeletal system pain and become sensitive.

    “22% of respondents of a survey stated that pain relief was one of the benefits of chiropractic care.”

  • Cervicogenic headache: The pain that is felt in the back of the neck, temple, and back of the eyes is a cervicogenic headache. Depending on the intensity of the pain, exact location, and cause the chiropractor will provide therapies like joint mobilization, deep neck flexion exercises or spinal manipulation.
  • Coccydynia: The pain that develops in the tailbone due to injury or childbirth is coccydynia. The specialized forms of spinal manipulations along with other management techniques can relive the pain in and around the tailbone.
