What Can a Chiropractor Do for You?
Chiropractors are typically seen as a solution to your neck and back problems - but their expertise and solutions go much farther than that.
Many people only think of going to the chiropractor when faced with neck or back pain - which means many people are significantly underutilizing this versatile profession!
What can a chiropractor do for you?
1) Diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions
Musculoskeletal conditions are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement systems, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, and more.
A few common conditions are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, or muscle and tendon strains. Chiropractors are trained to not only treat these conditions, but also provide the initial diagnoses - meaning you can only make one appointment to both diagnose and create a treatment plan!
2) Use Technical Healing Modalities
In addition to their expertise in physically manipulating your musculoskeletal system to treat your condition, chiropractors can also use healing modalities such as laser, ultrasound, and Interferential Current Therapy (IFC). With access to multiple healing techniques, your treatment plan isn’t limited to what your health care professional can provide.

3) Teach and Perform Rehabilitation Exercises
While typically only associated with physiotherapists, chiropractors can also provide patients with the rehabilitation exercises or ‘homework’ that will keep their condition improving (or at the very least, not getting worse!) between appointments.
4) Send you for an x-ray (without an additional referral)
If your chiropractor wants a closer look at whats going on with your condition, they can send you directly for an x-ray, bypassing the need for an additional medical referral - saving you driving from doctor to doctor, and getting you your results even faster.
BONUS: By end of 2018, chiropractors will also be able to send you for urine and blood samples to help get an even bigger picture of your condition and overall health.
