Doctors of chiropractic (DC) treat patients with problems of the musculoskeletal system. They treat the effects these issues have on the system and general health. Someone may call a chiropractor for back pain that’s persistent and unresponsive to pain medicine. In fact, 35 percent of all visits to a DC are to get back pain which might be caused by sports injuries, muscle strains or accidents. The doctor will have a medical history and then perform a physical examination. Other imaging, x-rays, along with laboratory tests could be employed to ascertain the appropriate therapy.
