Before we talk about Chiropractic Conditions, let us first review a little bit about chiropractors. A Doctor of Chiropractic (DC or D.C.) is an academic degree that chiropractic providers receive. Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals that can help treat and remedy many of your health related conditions, without the necessity of a referral. As a result of this, chiropractors are considered to be a portal of entry to the health care system.
The role of a chiropractor is distinctly different from that of medical doctors and yet similar in other ways. Chiropractors are considered to be specialists in spinal pain, and yet their patients have a wide variety of complaints and conditions being successfully treated. Chiropractic focuses on prevention through a healthy lifestyle as opposed to taking medications, placing them in a unique position as wellness advocates.
