There are over 60,000 active chiropractic licenses in the United States. That means there are over 60,000 people who can treat your back pain issues. On that note, most people who need chiropractic care do so for the treatment of lower back pain. A 2012 review of chiropractics suggested that the use of spine manipulation is a cost efficient treatment when used alone or in combination with other treatment programs.
Chiropractic doctors may assess patients through clinical examinations, lab testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Things like cervical spine traction, cold laser treatments and hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy are just some of the treatments for people who suffer from back problems.
