Everyone is unique as is their response to any type of treatment. There are a couple ways to know if chiropractic will work for you. One possibility is to visit a chiropractor and discuss treatment options and see if chiropractic helps. Another possibility is to scientifically study chiropractic to see if chiropractic treatment helps with different conditions.
Over the last few decades research has shown that chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment for neck pain₁, low back pain₂, fibromyalgia₃, pregnancy₄, TMJ₅, shoulder pain₆, ankle sprain₇, headaches₈, whiplash₉, and many more conditions. Chiropractic care has helped many people with a variety of conditions like constipation, colic, upset stomach, enuresis (bed wetting), and much more.
