In truth, chiropractors are usually skilled at treating practically all kinds of pain, whether they fall into the acute category or the chronic category. Acute pains tend to have immediate causes, in which short-term damage is done to localized tissue, for instance when a child scrapes their knees falling on a sidewalk. Chronic pain is of much longer duration, and is often associated with the presence of some disease such as arthritis, but can also occur as a result of repetitive motions, strains, and overuse injuries.

Chiropractic doctors study the system of neural pathways between the brain and every other part of the body, so they understand what causes pain and how to help alleviate it.
