You’ve heard a lot of things about chiropractic care, and you probably know of it as the doctor that cracks your back. Chiropractic care is so much more than that, though! In this post we discuss why someone might turn to chiropractic care, and what they can expect from a chiropractor.
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system as well as the nervous system, and how the disfunction of these systems can affect your overall health. Chiropractic treatment usually covers neuromusculoskeletal issues including neck and back pain, arm and leg pain, and even headaches. Chiropractic treatment is a hands-on and drug free approach to getting better faster and staying better longer. If you’re tired of being diagnosed painkillers to stifle your pain, chiropractic care may be for you.
Is it covered by insurance?
One of the questions we get a lot is if chiropractic care is covered by insurance. If you’re considering chiropractic treatment, it will probably be important for you to know if chiropractic treatment is affordable to you. The good news is that most insurers do cover chiropractic care, medicare, some medicaid plans, and more.

What can we do for you?
No matter your pain, we’ll work with you to come up with a plan to help you get better faster and stay better longer. We treat everyday people as well as athletes. Some of our patients even visit as “maintenance” — meaning they don’t have pain, but instead of waiting to feel sore or ache, they come in and see us to help them avoid feeling pain altogether. Chiropractors can help prevent pain and injuries in the everyday person as well as athletes, and it is not uncommon for most athletes to visit a chiropractor. We don’t do the healing — we put you on the right course for your body to heal naturally on its own.
It’s not just about cracking your back
Many people are surprised to find that we know a lot more besides cracking your back! We are highly trained medical professionals who know about lifestyle, fitness, nutrition, general health, and can even refer out to other practices if necessary. Since chiropractic care has to do with the musculoskeletal system and the movement of the body with it, we have our “toes dipped” into many different intersecting areas.
We have a lot to offer you, especially in our Manchester NH chiropractic office. We also offer massage therapy, physical therapy, and other means to help you get better faster and stay better longer. We’d love to meet you! Contact us today if you’d like to schedule an appointment.
