The goal of a chiropractor is to relieve any pain in your body and to improve the function of the ailing body part. Their treatment is an alternative to prescription drugs and invasive surgery. 

Here are some of the most common things that a chiropractor can treat in your body:

Neck Pain

Chiropractors are able to treat neck pain with specific neck manipulations— also called adjustments. For some people, neck adjustments paired with certain exercises work much better than mere pain medications. 

Tension Headaches

Chiropractic neck adjustments can also assist in treating tension headaches. These headaches typically cause pain in both the back of the head and neck. Bad posture and stress are many times the root of tension headaches. 

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is definitely one of the most common reasons patients seek chiropractic treatments. Spinal manipulation research is often focused on lower back pain. 


Whiplash is a type of stain in the neck that is many times the result of a car accident. It causes uncomfortable stiffness and pain in the neck— worsened if you try to turn your head in any slight direction. There is also a possibility of feeling nauseated and/or dizzy from whiplash.
