How Does a Chiropractor Treat and Eliminate Pain

Wednesday, April 07, 2021

Dr. Cristian Hernandez here, Chiropractor from ProHealth Chiropractic & Injury Center here in Pembroke Pines, FL. A common question we get is: "What is a Chiropractor good at?" I want to answer that simply. It’s a very good question. My cousin, Dr. Alex Hernandez, DC, a New Jersey-based Chiropractor, covers this subject in this video that he kindly wants me to share with you.

People see chiropractors to treat lower back pain, auto accident victims enjoy chiropractic treatment to relieve pain, athletes seek chiropractic treatment for sports-related injuries, and others see chiropractors for a host of other different reasons. Our specialty is the treatment of the spine. We go to school for four years of school and learn about the spine, nerves, and their related structures. Chiropractors take care of any kind of neuromusculoskeletal problems. Basically, we take care of the neuro, which is neurological, such as pinched nerves. We take care of the muscles, which means any kind of muscle problems that are related to the spine, the shoulders, and the hips. This is the big muscular system.

We also take care of problems with bones, and let me be very clear, we do not take care of anything that’s fractured. In the skeletal system, if your bones are out of alignment, particularly, if the bones of your spine are out of alignment, that’s what we take care of.

So we take care of those three areas: nerves, muscles, and bones. We take care of pinched nerves; if you have a muscle sprain, we take care of your muscle sprain; if you have injured yourself through sports or an accident we take care of those injuries as well.

The top conditions that we treat are: headaches, neck pain, whiplash, shoulder pain, arm pain, back pain, disc problems such as disc herniations, disc bulges; leg pain, and also sports injuries.
