What does a Chiropractor Do?
Surprisingly, there are quite a few people who don’t actually know what a chiropractor does. If you’re experiencing neck or back pain, you may be looking for solutions. Chiropractic care may be one of your options.
Chiropractors are experts in the spine, and treat without the use of drugs or surgery. The main treatment that most chiropractors utilize is called an adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, gentle, and effective form of spinal manipulation.
To Be a Chiropractor…
Although spinal adjustments are the most common treatment a chiropractor may use, the doctors at BC + PT are trained in many other forms of treatment to help with your specific injury or condition. Did you know that chiropractors in the United States must have a doctorate in chiropractic, and have just about 4,620 educational training hours to receive their degree? They are also required to take frequent continuing education courses to stay up to date with developments in healthcare, as well as the chiropractic profession.
