A local chiropractor is a health professional who is specially trained in treating patients with injuries and disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves). Whether you have a chronic condition such as osteoporosis, have been in a car accident or are recovering from a sports injury, a local chiropractor can help. Because your diet affects your physical and mental health so much, your local chiropractor may work with your local registered dietitian or nutritionist. They can help you create a healthy meal plan, understand sports nutrition and eat an anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain symptoms can be mild or severe, and cervical (neck pain), thoracic (middle back pain), lumbar (lower back pain) or tailbone/sacral (coccydynia). Lumbar back pain is the most common type.
