The field of chiropractic medicine has solidified its position in today’s medical arts community as structural, biomechanical experts. Currently there are fifty thousand practicing chiropractors around the world performing twenty-five million treatments per year.
The growing demand for an integrated approach to wellness has led to an increased awareness and mainstream utilization of chiropractic care. For those seeking pain relief and natural corrective measures, chiropractic treatment has gained popularity as a more conservative and less invasive alternative to surgery and drug therapy. With our natural pain management measures, we are able to help patients avoid the possible complications of prescription opioid drug dependence and the side effects associated with the long-term usage of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.
Chiropractors were pioneers in sports medicine and have been long-time contributors to performance enhancement of professional, as well as recreational, athletes.
A chiropractor is a university-trained doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuskuloskeletal disorders and their relationship to health. As part of the healing arts community, a chiropractor is a primary health care practitioner with privileges in the utilization of hospital outpatient services for diagnostic testing as well as interprofessional referrals to various specialists.
Chiropractic care is a proven, safe, gentle, and effective healing art. This is clearly exemplified by the inexpensive malpractice premiums for doctors of chiropractic; and there is long-time AMA recognition and affiliation between the medical and chiropractic disciplines.
