Chiropractors treat the entire neuromusculoskeletal system, but they are especially helpful in treating back pain. Dr. Witherspoon does not target pain relief itself as much as he attempts to treat the underlying conditions responsible for pain. Instead of merely masking pain with over-the-counter or prescription medications, many patients who visit Fix the Cause Chiropractic for back pain can achieve relief with simple spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes. Even the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research recommends that people with chronic back pain seek out conservative treatment options first, including safe and effective spinal manipulation.
