What Conditions Do Chiropractors Treat?If you suffer from chronic pain or have recently been in a car accident and are debilitated from the pain, you may be wondering what is the best way to help alleviate your pain, while also trying to solve the root issue. Many modern medical treatments do not try to suss out the root cause of the problem, but instead, place a bandaid over the issue. Chiropractic care, however, attempts to not only alleviate pain but also treat the issue at its source. But what conditions do chiropractors treat? In this blog post, you will learn what conditions can be treated with chiropractic care. 

Chiropractic Care 101

Chiropractic care is used for the treatment and recovery of pain by way of the spinal manipulation of the musculoskeletal system. It is a type of non-surgical rehabilitative medicine that attempts to not only alleviate pain but solve the pain. Chiropractic care is based on the assertion that using spinal manipulation, you can help the body heal. 

Conditions Chiropractors Can Treat

So what conditions do chiropractors treat? Some of the common treatments are for:

  • Back pain and neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Muscle strains

Back pain and neck pain

Back pain is a leading issue in the United States. Commonly treated with addictive medications, it is a driving force in the opioid epidemic in the United States. There are other forms of treatment for back pain (as well as for other related pain issues such as neck pain) and that is the utilization of chiropractic techniques that can help reduce the dependence on medication.

Research strongly suggests that chiropractic care, which utilizes spinal manipulation, offers some amazing benefits to people who have back and neck pain, as well as other musculoskeletal disorders. 


According to the World Health Organization, headaches are “extremely common.” At some point or another, all of us have had a headache. It’s when it is common enough to impede our daily lives, that headaches can become a burden on us. There are so many different ways of treating headaches, from medication to caffeine. But many ways do not address the cause of the pain. With chiropractic care, you can help try and reduce headaches will attempting to treat the cause. 

Sports injuries

Since the number of Americans engaging in sports activities such as frequenting the gym, etc. has become more and more common, sports-related injuries have increased greatly. These injuries, at times, can be minor but left untreated for long periods, they can become more painful and detrimental to the health of the athlete and can seriously hinder any furth athletic activity. That’s where chiropractic care comes in. It can help reduce pain, alleviate stress, and get you back on your feet again. 

Muscle strains

Muscle strains are some of the more common sports-related injuries. These can keep you from your game, and workout for a long period. Chiropractic care has been shown to not only reduce pain and inflammation but get you back on your feet again.
