What is a Doctor of Chiropractic?

A Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) achieves that distinction through extensive medical training. Typically a DC degree will be achieved through 4 years of schooling and an additional minimum of 3 years of undergraduate studies. This is very similar to the training a medical doctor receives. They also must be licensed in the state of which they practice. At Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage, our chiropractors in Edmonds, WA offer the latest in chiropractic techniques and treatments to provide superior care. We are enthusiastic about our choice of careers and look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.

What are Common Conditions and Injuries Treated by Chiropractors in Edmonds, WA?

Chiropractors often initially see patients when they experience neck or back pain. Chiropractic care, however, can treat a wide variety of maladies. These include sciatica and other poor posture and alignment problems. We also can assist you with nutritional and lifestyle counseling. Many of our patients seek help when sustaining a sports injury or an injury at work. We have proven to be effective in treating whiplash or other soreness and pain from an automobile accident. We have helped people with headaches and migraines and those with chronic pain in a variety of areas of their bodies.
