What will my chiro do if my back hurts?
Having a global vision of health, the chiropractor does not only focus on the pain: he considers his patient as a whole. He does not only want to relieve the pain. He is concerned with optimizing people’s health, allowing natural healing and offering personalized advice to avoid recurrence and improve quality of life.
The chiropractor has a first line role, meaning that he can be consulted without being referred by another health professional. On the other hand, if he deems it appropriate to work in conjunction with a member of another profession, he will collaborate to improve the quality of life of his patient. Although his approach is natural, he assesses his patient’s needs and may refer him to his physician for medical treatment such as the use of anti-inflammatory drugs to help the healing process when necessary.
