Under what circumstances would I choose a
chiropractor over an orthopedic doctor? Well, when we see a lot of patients after
they go to orthopedic and, usually when you go to orthopedic physician, they are either
looking to see if they are kind of in need for surgery, if not they will refer you out
to a therapist or a chiropractor. Our approach is to early find what’s causing the issue.
So if you come to our office with back pain, we don’t just look at your back, but we
will look at the structures above and below, like if your muscles are tight, we will stretch
the tight muscles; if your muscles are weak, we will strengthen the weak muscles, so we
will take more or a holistic approach to treating the back pain or any extreme pains should
they have, compared to an orthopedist will let them see if your surgical ___ and if you
are, if you’re not we refer you up but our goal is to get you better and really treat
what’s causing the problem.
