What does a chiropractor do? A chiropractor assesses, diagnoses, and treats a wide range of musculoskeletal issues caused by both acute injuries and degenerative health conditions. The treatments often consist of gentle manipulation of the vertebrae using the hands or a small, handheld tool.
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to relieve pain, improve joint mobility, and restore balance to the body.

What Types of Injuries and Conditions Can a Simple Chiropractic Adjustment Help Treat?
One of the keys to the success of a chiropractic treatment is that the adjustments address the root cause of your pain and don’t simply try and mask the symptoms.
The pain that you feel is just a result or by-product of the injury or condition that’s taking place under the surface. When medication is used to cover up the pain, you may experience some relief, but the pain always returns once the effect of the chemicals wears off.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle, non-surgical, and drug-free, so you never have to worry about unpleasant side effects or lengthy recovery times. Appointments are typically short, and you can get on with your day as soon as it is over.
A simple chiropractic adjustment can help treat a wide range of injuries and conditions, including:
- Herniated disc
- Pinched nerves
- Ligament and cartilage damage
- Degenerative disc disease
- Elbow pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc injuries
- Hip pain
- Joint pain
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
