Musculoskeletal Disorders and Treatment

Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) can affect the body’s muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Musculoskeletal and neuromuscular symptoms (numbness, tingling, skin crawling sensation) are some of the most common reason for visits to medical doctor’s offices.

These medical doctor visits and the associated pharmaceuticals prescribed often times become unnecessary with properly administered chiropractic adjustments, Active Release Techniques, rehabilitative exercise and therapeutic massage.

Does this mean that Dr. Kersenbrock believes medical doctors are unnecessary? Not at all. Dr. Kersenbrock works closely with several local medical doctors and refers to them when cases are out of the chiropractic scope.

Example
Pain in the right shoulder can actually be caused by an acutely inflamed gallbladder in danger of rupturing.  This kind of health issue requires immediate attention by a medical doctor.  Knowing who is a candidate for chiropractic care and who isn’t is a major part of quality patient care.
