THIS ARTICLE WILL HELP YOU FIND THE BEST “CHIROPRACTOR NEAR ME” – YOU!!!
Well, this article will help you make an informed decision on to where you should go. There are a TON of chiropractors and all have different specialties as well as training. That’s right, ALL CHIROPRACTORS ARE NOT TRAINED AT THE SAME LEVEL!
In the full 7-8 years of school needed to become a chiropractor, most of the training is only designed to help students pass board exams and is not focused on treating patients. We will get into all of this, in order to help you make an informed decision and to truly help you find the best chiropractor near you.
What does a chiropractor treat?
A chiropractor analyzes and treats the entire musclulo-skeletal system, but primarily the spine where all of the nerves come from. It is common for a chiropractor to treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica or other sciatica nerve type issues. Forms of treatment may include the chiropractic adjustment, muscle release, cold laser therapy, spinal decompression therapy and more. One thing that I would keep in mind when choosing a chiropractor is that much like any other health care professional, if you don’t get help from one-that does not mean that chiropractic is bad for your type of pain! You may just need a better trained chiropractor or a specialist. Often times you can find out through their website or even by calling the office and asking to talk to the doctor directly about your problem or pain.
What kind of chiropractor do you need?
Here I will list off different types of conditions or goals and I will recommend the best type of chiropractor to see for these.
Herniated Disc or disc bulge – If you have a herniated disc or a disc bulge, you definitely want to find a chiropractor that offers spinal decompression. Spinal decompression therapy is the best type of treatment if you are looking to correct your issue. Chiropractors that offer massage may help with relief, but if you want the best chiropractic treatment or the best resolution for your herniated disc, you definitely want to find a chiropractor that offers spinal decompression.
Sciatica or Low back pain – If you have sciatica or low back pain, you will most definitely want to see someone that first of all does manual adjustments. Often times a chiropractor may offer a drop table adjustment for sciatica or back pain, but in my years of working with hundreds of doctors and reviewing research, this is not the most effective treatment for sciatica or treatment for back pain. You will also want a chiropractor who offers some form of muscle release or muscle work as muscles are absolutely involved in all sciatica or low back pain cases. The best forms of soft tissue muscle release offered by a chiropractic specialist would be Active Release Technique ART, Fascial Distortion Model FDM or even Graston Technique. A herniated disc may also be involved in you sciatica, so seeing a chiropractor that offers spinal decompression is also a plus, just in case it is needed.
Neck Pain, Headaches or Shoulder Pain – If you have neck pain, headaches or shoulder pain and you want the best care, you will definitely want to see a chiropractor who offers either chiropractic biophysics treatments CBP or one that heavily focuses on corrective therapy with a focus on posture.
