Doctors of chiropractic are primary health care providers according to both Federal and State regulations. This means chiropractors can serve as portals of entry into the health care delivery system. Under chiropractic care, a patient is either treated or referred after a comprehensive differential diagnosis is performed utilizing an orthopedic and neurological examination, an X-ray examination if necessary, as well as laboratory procedures if deemed appropriate for the patient's complaint. By consultation and examination, the doctor of chiropractic will arrive at a prognosis under chiropractic care or will refer the patient to an appropriate health care professional specialist.
Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as therapy for Neuromusculoskeletal (nerve, muscle, skeleton or bone) disorders and related conditions, most commonly back pain, neck pain and headaches. Other conditions such as TMJ, overuse or tendentious, bursitis and capsulitis respond very favorably to conservative chiropractic care.
