Do you know what chiropractors do? I am always surprised by how many people have no idea what we do. Do we only treat lower backs? Can we treat headaches? What about achilles tedonitis? Shoulder pain? The short answer is YES!
Why would people be so confused about what we do? The answer is that no two chiropractors are alike, and as a result, people don't know what they can expect from any of us. This week two patients came into the office to be treated for their lower back complaint, only to find that the other pains (in their hips and midback) that they thought were unrelated, were likely contributing to their pain levels. Would another chiropractor (or physical therapist) have caught that? We cannot speak for them. I can tell you that we WILL catch it though, and that is what makes us different!
