The simple and easy answer is YES!!
The good news is that the effectiveness of Chiropractic treatment has been heavily studied. For neck and back pain the data is conclusive, the first provider that should be seen for treatment is a Chiropractor. This is because most spine injuries are mechanical pain, and mechanical pain has to be treated with mechanical treatments like Chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue manipulation and corrective exercise.
There is not as much research that shows Chiropractic’s effectiveness for conditions of the upper and lower extremities, but that is simply because it hasn’t been studied well. I think it is safe to assume that the effectiveness is the same for all injuries to the spine and joints when the pain is mechanical in nature.
It is simple to know if your pain is mechanical, a proper consultation, history, and examination determines what your diagnosis is and what treatment should be provided. Dr. Hill is an expert at determining what your injury is, what caused it, and what should be done about it (even if that means he needs to refer you to another doctor).
