Chiropractic care provides diagnosis and treatment without the use of drugs or surgery for problems including your muscles, joints, nerves, and spine. Common conditions that can be treated include low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, and sprains. Chiropractic doctors can also provide advice on nutrition and exercise to support recovery and promote prevention.
Over 80% of the population will suffer from back and neck pain at some point in their lives. Work place incidents, car accidents, sports injuries, poor posture, household chores, and the stress of daily living may all cause painful joint and spinal problems.
