Chiropractic can treat many different conditions. It is very possible your Primary Care Physician is unaware of the different conditions in which Chiropractic can benefit and can persuade you to stay away.

It is a Doctor’s responsibility to inform you of all treatments available for your condition. If your Doctor do not include Chiropractic, they are not reading current research and are doing you a disservice.
