Chiropractors seek the origin of illness in order to eliminate it, instead of simply treating the symptoms. Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?
We look at the whole picture.
Like other health-care providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination and we may request laboratory analyses and/or X-rays.
We seek the origin of the problem.
Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms.
Once you start going to a chiropractor, you have to keep going for the rest of your life.
This statement is a myth and comes up frequently when the topic of chiropractic is discussed. It is only partially true. You only have to continue going to the chiropractor as long as you wish to maintain the health of your neuromusculoskeletal system. Going to a chiropractor is much like going to the dentist, exercising at a gym or eating a healthy diet. As long as you keep it up, you continue to enjoy the benefits.

"Observational study found that low back pain patients receiving chiropractic care, which typically includes spinal manipulation, are more satisfied than those receiving medical care."
