Chiropractic Doctors / Chiropractic Physicians* and What They Do

Share

Alexander Jimenez grew up knowing he was going to be a chiropractic doctor. As a child, Dr. Jimenez’s grandmother (Rebecca Tinoco of Bogota, Columbia)� experienced pain symptoms and would ask little Alex to massage the painful areas. His grandmother found relief and Dr. Jimenez began to think about how he could help others experiencing pain.

It was through this care that Dr. Jimenz realized being a health care chiropractic practitioner was the best way to help people. Like his grandfather, many others have experienced profound results thanks to chiropractic treatment. Dr. Jimenez knew that he wanted to be able to treat patients naturally. He would learn and develop the skills required to practice as a chiropractic physician. He enrolled in a university chiropractic program, graduated, has put in almost 30 years of work, and the rest is history. What to know about chiropractic physicians.

A Chiropractic Physician*

A Doctor of Chiropractic also known as a D.C. is far more than a back doctor. Chiropractors study the same sciences as doctors of medicine or MDs. They are trained in the latest techniques and approaches, diagnostic tools, and developing effective treatment plans to manage various health conditions. However, chiropractic physicians specialize in non-invasive/non-surgical/non-pharmacological health care protocols and focus on whole-body health and natural healing. Wide range of factors that can impact an individual�s health like:

  • Biomechanical dysfunction
  • Diet
  • Genetics
  • Trauma
  • Hygiene
  • Emotions
  • Environment – Home/work
  • Infection/s
  • Lack of exercise
  • Posture
  • Stress levels

Based on these factors a chiropractor is able to determine the most effective, beneficial natural treatment plan.

Work

Chiropractic physicians encourage individuals to look at natural, medication/surgery-free approaches to improve health, reduce, and alleviate painful symptoms. They are often called upon for preventive and rehabilitative health care. �

� Chiropractic treatment is responsible for thousands of back surgeries being avoided, as well as injuries being prevented with conservative care. Chiropractors perform manual, and tool-assisted adjustments of the spine and the body’s other joints. Depending on their training, they could practice:

  • Acupuncture
  • Functional medicine
  • Nutritional medicine
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Provide supplements like vitamins and natural botanicals

Chiropractors utilize diagnostic tests like X-rays, ultrasound, and check blood pressure. They can order and interpret blood samples, urine samples, and other medical lab tests. Chiropractic physicians are able to:

  • Practice as primary-care physicians in most states
  • Can become licensed in all states
  • Own general or specialized practice
  • Work as an associate in a group practice
  • Specialize in fields like:
  1. Sports medicine
  2. Acupuncture
  3. Pediatrics
  4. Women�s health
  5. Neurology
  • Hospital work
  • Wellness institutions
  • Veteran care
  • Multi-disciplinary and integrative clinics
  • Conduct research
  • Teach at chiropractic medical colleges

Treatment

Doctors of chiropractic are able to treat individuals of all ages, and a variety of health conditions. Most know about chiropractors and their expertise in treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches. However, chiropractors can also treat many types of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system. They can:

  • Release tight muscles
  • Stretch out ligaments
  • Return joint mobility
  • Relieve overuse/repetitive injuries
  • Ease migraines
  • Rehabilitate/Prevent sports injuries
  • Treat automobile accident injuries
  • Reduce/Alleviate arthritis
