Our Atlanta Chiropractors concentrate on the connection between the body’s structure — primarily the spine — and the body’s function.
Doctors of Chiropractic, who are also referred to as Chiropractors or Chiropractic Physicians, mostly use a type of hands-on therapy called adjustment (or manipulation).
Chiropractic therapy is most often used to primarily address conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system — problems with the bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissue such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
The rudimentary concepts of Chiropractic therapy can be described as follows:
Studies have demonstrated that Chiropractic therapy can help provide relief from headaches, back pain and joint pain in women who have received treatment for breast cancer.
Other studies have looked at using Chiropractic therapy to alleviate menopausal symptoms in patients, but the results were inconclusive.
It’s important to speak with your doctor if you’re considering Chiropractic therapy.
If your doctor says Chiropractic therapy is OK for you, it is also important to convey to your Chiropractor the type breast cancer treatments you have received.
The Chiropractor will need to take extra care with any manipulations near the area that had surgery.
In some cases, the surgical area may not be able to receive adjustments.
Many insurance plans cover Chiropractic therapy. Chiropractors can bill Medicare, and Medicaid covers the cost of Chiropractic treatment in most states.
If you have your own health insurance, call your provider ahead of your appointment to see whether or not Chiropractic therapy is covered.
