Dr. Marianne Gengenbach D.C.'s Expert Contributions
As a chiropractor who specializes in pediatric adjusting, I can tell you that chiropractic adjustments are safe for all ages, although, of course, adjustments for the very young are more gentle, and not every chiropractor is comfortable adjusting kids under 1 year of age. Chiropractic has even been found to be effective for certain forms of colic in infants, as well as neck spasms due to birth trauma. Your thirteen-year old should certainly be checked out for the causes of her low back pain. In fact, she is at the age where scoliosis first makes an appearance, so having a chiropractor evaluate and treat her would allow her to be screened for that as well. READ MORE
As a rule, unless they also have an MD license, chiropractic physicians do not prescribe medications. In fact, chiropractic physicians pride themselves on being able to provide pain relief without the use of pain medications. We often work with patients and coordinate with their other physicians to begin chiropractic care and then have their other docs help them slowly come off their pain medications. Many D.C's also provide nutritional supplementation to their patients that can help the body deal with pain. A pain management doctor will be mainly focused on alleviating pain or blocking the pain from being felt, but will not necessarily focus on the cause. READ MORE
