Washington Park Chiropractic, Chiropractic Care
You will often hear our chiropractors say if it hurts when you move it, it is likely a chiropractic problem. Same can be said for if the pain is on the outside of your body. These are very general rules of thumb when deciding if a chiropractor is the right solution for your pain or injury. Chiropractic is a health care discipline that focuses on 'moving parts' or disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat muscle, ligament and joint complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs (including sciatic pain), and headaches.
Our doctors are experts in manual manipulation. They have extensive training in the specific and highly efficient adjustments that produce results quickly. All treatments are tailored to each patient, however most patients will benefit from a traditional, Palmer-style, chiropractic adjustment.

Chiropractors hold a 4 year post graduate doctorate degree and are board certified and licensed by the state to diagnose, manage and treat hundreds of conditions. In forming a diagnosis, chiropractors perform a thorough history, physical exam and are licensed to order tests including X-rays, MRIs, CT scans and lab tests, among others. Treatment approaches vary; however, chiropractors are licensed to perform spinal manipulation, physical therapy modalities, soft tissue treatment, prescribe rehabilitation and exercises, and counsel on nutrition and body biomechanics, etc. Chiropractors are not licensed to prescribe medications or perform surgical procedures.
