Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments. Proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, can enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Chiropractic manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support. Chiropractic is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Dr. Cobb is by no means anti medical nor anti pharmaceutical. He works closely with other healthcare professionals such as Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurologists, Family Practitioners. He will not hesitate to refer a patient in need of services outside of his scope.
