What Do Chiropractors Do?

Chiropractic Treatment in Longview WA | Dr. Rick Still | 360-636-2636 One of the most misunderstood health care professions is that of a chiropractor. Some people believe a chiropractor cracks your neck and back to relieve tension. Others believe a chiropractor solely treats clients who have suffered a mild to serious that is chronic pain. A chiropractor does in fact perform manual adjustments and treats misalignment of the spine, which both can result in chronic pain. However, a chiropractor also focuses on any disorder and issue related to the neuromusculoskeletal system, as well as improving overall wellness through massage therapy, a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition.

The most common types of injuries and causes of chronic pain that a chiropractor treats includes the following: strained and pulled muscles; torn ligaments; sprained tendons; back and neck pain; leg pain; headaches; poor posture; misaligned spine; arthritis; golfer and tennis elbow; runner’s knee; injuries related to car accidents; and fractures. Each one of these bothersome and/or debilitating issues can be successfully treated with concentrated chiropractic care by a licensed, highly trained chiropractor.

In addition to treating and relieving various types of ailments and chronic pain, a chiropractor offers a holistic approach in offering each client a nutritional assessment that provides the chiropractor with a full picture of a client’s current state of health. Armed with this important information, the chiropractor can advise a client on how to improve overall health through dietary changes, proper hydration, regular exercise, routine stretching to improve flexibility and mobility, and stress-reducing activities, such as yoga and massage therapy.
