Chiropractic vs. Traditional Medicine: A Natural Approach to Pain Management

Chiropractic is a type of complementary medicine that places a strong emphasis on the spine. Chiropractic concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. It is based on the idea that these disorders may have an impact on both the nervous system and general health of the body.

Which spine pictured below looks healthier? Which person do you think has symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling, or other neurological impacts?

The spine, vertebra, and the central nervous system

The spine and other joints in the body are adjusted by chiropractors using a variety of techniques, such as manual adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and stretching.
To reduce pain and enhance function, they may also employ other modalities. At PTBO Chiro Dr. Doug Lukinuk and Dr. Peter Drysdale employ various techniques. These include classic spinal manipulation, gentle torque-release-technique, drop-table adjustments, integrator, and arthrostim tools.

A prescription for pain relief

Chiropractors don’t carry out surgery or write prescriptions for medication like regular doctors do. They hold that chiropractic care can lessen interference with the body’s natural healing processes. Chiropractors believe that the body has the capacity to heal itself–especially when the spine is aligned, and the central nervous system is healthy.


Chiropractic care is frequently sought after for headaches, back and neck pain, as well as sports injuries and conditions. It is not, however, a one-size-fits-all strategy. What is helpful for one person may not be helpful for another. That’s why multiple techniques are available for treatment. To decide on the best course of treatment, it is crucial to discuss your unique needs and health objectives with your chiropractor.
