THERE are four main goals of chiropractic treatment:

>Reduce pain and discomfort

>Improve movement and function

>Improve psychological well-being

>Return to work, sport or activity as soon as possible

So any treatment by a chiropractor will entail these four goals.

Conservative treatment such as chiropractic should usually be the first line of treatment for back, neck and joint pain. In chronic or stubborn cases pain medication may be required.

However, patients are advised not to become dependent on medication due to side effects and complications.

Common conditions seen by chiropractors include muscle strains, joint sprains, spondylosis (arthritis of the spine), scoliosis (bent spine), headache due to tension or tight neck muscles, migraine and myofascial (muscle) pain.

So if you are suffering from any of these then you should consult a chiropractor as these conditions usually respond well to chiropractic treatment.
