Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

A Chesapeake Chiropractor’s Education

lady

I bet you didn’t realize that your local Chesapeake, VA chiropractor can read the same x-rays as your local medical doctor. I also bet you didn’t know that chiropractors have the same and sometimes more schooling than your family physician. You probably didn’t realize that your neighborhood chiropractor can treat many of the same conditions as your family physician, but does it without medication or surgery.

The educational requirements for chiropractors today are primarily focused on the sciences. The typical student enrolling in has an undergraduate focus similar to that of a pre-medical undergraduate student.

Students in Chiropractic College have four to five years of a rigorous program, which includes classes that continue to follow a similar path to those of a medical student, such as Neuroanatomy, Embryology, Spinal Anatomy, Biochemistry, Gender Disorders, Visceral Disorders, and much more. Chiropractic student also take several radiology, diagnosis, and technique classes. Since chiropractors do not prescribe medications or perform surgeries, they spend their time expanding their knowledge about how the body works, nutrition, rehabilitation, diagnosis and x-ray.

It goes without saying that today’s chiropractors are more than just people that adjust. Your doctor of chiropractic is here to help you with more conditions than you realize.

I was constantly in severe pain and always feeling tired. The doctors could not tell me what was wrong, even after going through numerous tests. I am now feeling better. I have so much energy. It is amazing! I would have been one that was against chiropractic care, but now my attitude is positive about chiropractic care. I tell all my friends about how Dr. Chad has helped me.

They are very giving and helping people. They were very helpful with my family when my son got injured in his neck in a wrestling practice. They go out of their way to help the community.
