What do Chiropractic Doctors Treat?

Many people think of DC’s as treating low backs only. Or, they think of them as only treating necks and low backs. People are oftentimes surprised to know that DC’s treat conditions such as

  1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist/hand pain),
  2. Foot and ankle pain including heel spurs and plantar fascitis,
  3. Headaches-Migraine, TMJ, and Neck related
  4. TMJ Dysfunction (Jaw pain)
  5. Knee pain
  6. Nutritional disorders
  7. Bulging discs and pinched nerves

While not only treating the spinal and muskuloskeletal disorders, Chiropractic Doctors have had patients note relief with the following disorders while under a DC’s care:

  1. GERD or Heartburn
  2. Colic in infants
  3. Enuresis or bed-wetting
  4. Sinus congestion
  5. reduction in severity of Otitis Media or middle ear infections
  6. Difficulty sleeping
  7. Painful periods and lack of periods in women

Surprised? Most people are! Doctors of Chiropractic not only treat a multitude of conditions, they are trained to diagnosis and detect other conditions that might warrant the need for a referral to a specialist. In my practice, I’ve found tumors, diabetes, severe hypertension, gallstones, and kidney stones that needed to be seen by their respective medical specialists.
