The conditions which doctors of chiropractic address are as varied and as vast as the nervous system itself. All chiropractors use a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a patient’s condition and arrive at a course of treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic use the same time-honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination, neurological diagnostic tests, advance imaging and x-ray examination as any other doctor. In addition, they provide a detailed chiropractic structural
examination by paying particular attention to the nervous system, spine and the extremities.
In an event of accidents, falls, mental stress, tension, repetitive strain at work, overexertion, and countless other factors can result in displacements or derangements of the spinal column, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots and/or intervertebral discs. These irritations are often what cause malfunctions in the human musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic treatment combined with manual therapy can reduce or eliminate this irritation to the neuro-musculoskeletal system to allow your body to operate at a more efficient and optimal level.
At Manhattan Spine Rehabilitation (MSR) we place emphasis on nutrition and exercise programs, wellness, and lifestyle modifications for promoting physical and mental health. While chiropractors make no use of drugs or surgery, Doctors of chiropractic do refer patients for medical care when those interventions are indicated. In fact, at MSR we offer a multidisciplinary team approach to treatment including our Medical Doctor, physical therapist, massage therapist and acupuncturist. Whatever pain or discomfort you may have, we can evaluate, diagnose and treat it, all within the comfort of our 2 convenient locations.
