What Are Some Common Treatments Chiropractors Use?

Patients undergoing chiropractic care are commonly aware of spinal manipulation, which involves a doctor’s gentle manipulation of the spine using their hands or a tool. However, chiropractors also offer a wide range of other techniques and treatments, such as:

  • Spinal decompression
  • Cervical decompression
  • Cryotherapy
  • Heat therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Laser therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Massage
  • Physical therapy

Your chiropractor will choose the treatment based on the severity of your condition and your preferences. They will work with you to develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with. Your doctor may recommend a single treatment or combine multiple techniques to alleviate your symptoms.
