Ten Things Treated by Chiropractors
How chiropractors can treat other parts of your body besides your back
Contrary to popular belief, back pain isn’t the only thing that can be treated by chiropractors. They can also treat the following conditions and address the following issues seen below.

Parts of the arm bone can be misaligned. Chiropractors can help to line the joints and prescribe physical therapies, ice packs or similar remedies.

Typically, shoulder pain can be caused by torn ligaments, and nerve and tissue damage. Again, chiropractors can help to realign your joints and help the surrounding tissue to heal (with a massage or physical therapy).
5. Carpal tunnel syndrome
Chiropractors can mitigate the worst excesses of carpal tunnel syndrome by allowing the nerves to flow freely.
