Traditionally Chiropractors have focused solely on the spine and used spinal adjustments to treat a variety of ailments. Modern evidence based chiropractors now focus on the diagnosis and management of many conditions related not only to the spine, but to the whole musculoskeletal system directly addressing many areas and conditions including:
- Knee pain
- Ankle sprains
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Foot pain
Spinal adjustments may only be used if needed depending on the patient’s specific condition. Other therapies considered are acupuncture, soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, rehabilitation Exercises, and athletic taping.
