Chiropractic FAQs

01

What types of conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions and dysfunctions related to the spine, nervous system, and joints. Chiropractors treat specific injuries as well as chronic conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system (including muscles, tendons, ligaments) and the nervous system. Types of injuries chiropractors treat include: strains, sprains, joint dysfunction (issue with how a joint moves or functions), joint degeneration (wear and tear within the joint) and nerve entrapment (pinched nerve).

02

What should I expect on my initial visit?

During your initial visit your chiropractor will get an understanding of your current health and any issue related to your musculoskeletal (spine, muscles and joints) and/or your nervous system by asking questions and performing tests. Expect questions related to your medical history, exercise levels, chronic conditions, sleep, previous illnesses, etc. Your chiropractor may perform tests to analyze your posture, movement, range of motion, reflexes, spine, and extremities. Using the best evidence and clinical expertise, your chiropractor will diagnose your issues and create a plan to treat you.

03

Do chiropractors treat problems beyond the spine and neck?

Yes, chiropractors can treat any joint in your body including shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles and even your jaw. Chiropractors get specific training while they are in school as part of their core education and many maintain continued education to either provide the best care or an appropriate referral for your area of complaint.

04

Can I still see my physiotherapist or registered massage therapist if I see a chiropractor.

Yes, chiropractors recognize the importance of good communication and collaboration with other professionals to ensure that you get the best care. You will need to give your chiropractor permission to disclose and/or discuss your health information with health providers outside of the clinic.
