Winters in Calgary are generally not as mild as we are seeing this year and snow shoveling often is the cause of patients seeking chiropractic care after an injury to the lower or mid-back.
Chiropractors specialize in the musculo-skeletal system, which means anything involving muscles, bones and
joints. Chiropractors use an assortment of techniques to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. Conditions include anything relating to the spine, from headaches and neck pain to low back pain, but also conditions unrelated to the spine such as carpal tunnel and knee pain.
Low back pain is one of the most common reasons for which an individual will seek chiropractic care. The growth of the chiropractic profession over a large number of decades is an indication of not only the effectiveness but also the need for therapy designed to manage the spine.
