Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the nervous system and general function. There is emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation, soft tissue work, and joint mobilization. Appropriately applied, these treatments have the advantages of reducing pain, decreasing medication, rapidly advancing the effects of strengthening exercises, and requiring fewer passive modalities. Chiropractic care can be used to treat neuromuscular complaints of the back, neck, joints of the arms, legs, spine and headaches.
The chiropractors at the Spine Institute of Arizona, Monte Hessler, D.C. and Brock Auten, D.C., are extensively trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the muscles, joints, bones, ligaments and tendons and provide a therapeutic plan for pain relief. They recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with the other healthcare providers present at the Spine Institute and in the community, and are a vital part of the healthcare team in helping to restore function, relieve pain and prevent injury.
