Chiropractic Medicine at Total Care Health
You can receive healthcare at Total Care Health from a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine. This is a medical professional who has received a 4-year undergraduate degree, a graduate degree, extensive training, and has passed national board exams.
The Chiropractor is an expert on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and is trained to work with people of all ages.
Chiropractors may have a special focus in certain areas like sports medicine or rehabilitation or pediatrics or occupational health or they may be a generalist.
While chiropractors do not do surgery, they do use some hands-on manipulative techniques and other tools to help diagnose and treat injuries and disorders. Chiropractors often have a holistic view of your health and will be interested to talk to you not just about your pain or injury, but also about your sleep or your diet or your function or dysfunction.
You can expect a chiropractor to take a detailed medical history, and then give you an examination before deciding how best to proceed with your care on a case-by-case basis.
It’s generally recommended to see your chiropractor as soon as possible if you are in pain or have suffered an injury, so that you can experience some relief right away, the chiropractor can help you to heal faster.
