5 Reasons to Choose a Chiropractor Over an Orthopedist

A chiropractic doctor focuses on the spine and nervous system. Find out why they’re better than orthopedists!

Chiropractors are trained in the use of manual manipulation of the spine to treat musculoskeletal disorders. They also provide preventive care for people at all ages.

They Can Help You Avoid Surgery.

If you’ve ever had back pain, you know how painful it can be. It’s not uncommon for patients to seek treatment from both an orthopedist (a specialist who treats injuries and diseases of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons) and a chiropractor (a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating spinal misalignments). However, there are some situations where only one type of provider will help you.

They Treat More Conditions Than Orthopedics.

While orthopedics treat musculoskeletal disorders, chiropractors focus on the spine and nervous systems. This means they can diagnose and treat more conditions than orthopedists. In fact, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians, chiropractic doctors are trained to treat everything from headaches to ear infections.

They Can Help You Prevent Back Pain.

If you suffer from back pain, you might think that seeing an orthopedist is the only option. However, there are other options available to you. One of these is a chiropractor. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, chiropractors are trained to help people with back pain by adjusting the spine.

They Can Help You Recover Faster From Injuries.

They Can Help You Live Longer.

In addition to helping you heal faster, chiropractors can also help you live longer. Research shows that people who receive regular chiropractic care are less likely to die prematurely.
