If you have hypothyroidism, a chiropractor can help you manage the symptoms of your condition. Spinal adjustment cannot treat hypothyroidism, but in partnership with hormone replacement, chiropractics can change the quality of your life drastically for the better. There is no reason to put up with inflammation, back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel, or arthritis when a chiropractor can give you relief.
Nutrition, diet, and lifestyle are crucial for people with thyroid conditions. Unfortunately, these are areas that medical doctors often neglect, and patients suffer the consequences. The first two years of training, medical doctors and chiropractors study the same thing. Therefore, chiropractors have mastered how to use patient history, lab tests, physical examination, imaging studies, and more. The next two years of education, chiropractors and medical doctors split apart. While medical doctors study pharmacology, chiropractors study diet, nutrition, and spinal manipulation. All the natural facets of life that can bring you relief are up for improvement the minute you step into a chiropractor’s office.
It is important to be clear that a chiropractor cannot cure your thyroid condition, and a chiropractor who claims to be able to should be avoided. However, by carefully keeping your joints aligned, managing your diet, and making sure you get the right nutrition, your chiropractor can be an essential ally on your journey.
