The Differences Between a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and a Medical Doctor (MD) Explained



We are continuing our series discussing the differences between a doctor of chiropractic (DC) and a medical doctor (MD).  Our previous article explained how a chiropractor focuses on whole body wellness and utilizes a more hands-on approach to healing. Today, we will cover two more distinctions between a chiropractor and a medical doctor.

A Chiropractor Explores Alternative Solutions to Surgery

Chiropractors do not perform surgery and offer alternative methods to treat your pain.  Medical doctors sometimes offer a surgical approach to pain. A back pain doctor (MD), for instance, may recommend a surgical procedure.  A chiropractic pain relief center is different in that a chiropractor utilizes appropriate non-surgical therapies to address your pain.

A Chiropractor is a Complement to Your Family Doctor

A chiropractor is an excellent complement to your family doctor.  Your family doctor is able to prescribe medications such as antibiotics, perform necessary surgeries (i.e. appendectomy), administer vaccines and treat specific diseases.  Chiropractic care is a whole body approach that focuses on nutrition, spinal alignment, musculoskeletal and nervous system health, and the body’s overall well-being.  Together, your family doctor and chiropractor can help ensure your body is healthy and performing at optimal levels.

Dr. Adam W. Roussel, DC, MOT, CCEP, NASM-CES and his experienced team of pain relief center professionals are committed to helping you become pain free and achieve optimal health.  We develop a customized treatment plan which outlines the best therapies to treat the root of your problem.  Some of the treatments recommended may include massage therapy, cupping, spinal disc compression relief, dry needling and laser therapy.  If you are in pain, we can help.
