What conditions to chiropractors treat?
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) work with patients of all ages and a variety of health conditions. While DCs are typically associated with treatment of neck or back pain, chiropractors are able to treat any joint in the body including those of the arms, legs, or head. Chiropractors work primarily with disorders of the musculoskeletal system – muscles, ligaments, joints and the nerves that innervate them. In addition to treating your symptoms, we at Karuna, also educate our patients on diet, nutrition, therapeutic exercise and, if necessary, lifestyle/occupational modification, as means to get your body functioning optimally in as few visits as possible.

What will my first visit look like?
We spend the beginning of each initial visit building a comprehensive picture of your current symptoms while noting relevant past personal or family health history – When and how did this start? Is there anything that makes your symptoms worse? Better? Most importantly, we will discuss your desired treatment goals which will help lay framework for future visits.
