Chiropractors are manual therapy Physicians that work primarily with the musculoskeletal health of their patients. Chiropractic is often thought of as a treatment method for the spine, but can address all joints and muscles of the body, as well as often having an effect of the health of the internal metabolism as well.
Although the spinal adjustment/manipulation is the most well-known treatment tool employed by chiropractors, the scope of the chiropractic profession includes every therapy that a physical therapist, massage therapist, and fitness trainer can employ. Further, chiropractors are licensed to order X-Rays, MRIs, and lab work for a complete and thorough assessment/diagnosis of the patient’s health.
At Synergy Health and Fitness, our Chiropractic physicians are soft-tissue oriented, creating a much broader approach for the musculoskeletal health of our patients.
