  • I had back surgery. Should I see a chiropractor or avoid it?

    Chiropractors are trained in the management of many spinal conditions, which includes knowing when to deliver a spinal adjustment and when not to. Depending on the type of surgery that you had and how well you’re healing, an adjustment may or may not be appropriate for you. Just as there are different types of medical doctors (GPs, Pediatricians, PM&R, Orthopedists, Neurologists, Radiologists, etc), there are specialties in chiropractic. You may want to seek out a chiropractor that is boarded in rehabilitation ( These individuals have completed their doctorate in chiropractic medicine, and have done a minimum of 2 years additional training, passed a board examination, and meet all of the criteria to be diplomats of their specialty board. Seeing a chiropractor that is trained in rehabilitation is just like seeing a chiropractor and a physical therapists at the same time. You may really benefit from their care! READ MORE
