Chiropractic Care Q&A
How does chiropractic care improve my health and well-being?
Chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of problems in your musculoskeletal and nervous systems. As experts in back, neck, joint, and muscle conditions, chiropractors excel in helping patients heal, bringing relief from their pain and improving their mobility.
Chiropractors often focus on misaligned spinal vertebrae. Correcting spinal problems alleviates your back and neck pain and also relieves pressure on the nerves and blood vessels serving your body. As a result, spinal manipulation restores well-being in all of your body’s systems, boosts your immune system, and reduces body-wide stress.
What conditions are treated with chiropractic care?
At Legacy Pain and Regenerative Medicine, you may receive chiropractic therapy for problems such as:
- Meniscus injuries
- Ligament injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Rotator cuff tears
- Tendonitis such as tennis elbow
- Herniated discs
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cervical and lumbar radiculopathy
Chiropractic treatments can also help patients with scoliosis, gait abnormalities, and poor posture.
What type of chiropractic treatment might I receive?
Dr. Alexander is extensively trained in many different chiropractic techniques. After performing an examination and diagnosing the cause of your symptoms, he develops a customized treatment plan that includes one or more techniques.
These are a few examples of chiropractic therapies Dr. Alexander frequently uses:
- Spinal manipulation and mobilization
- Spinal decompression
- Modified chiropractic for children
- Gentle spinal adjustment
- Gentle neck manipulation
- Mechanical traction
- Trigger point therapy
- Physical therapy

Should Dr. Alexander’s exam reveal that you need the care of another doctor such as an orthopedist or physiatrist, he refers you to a trusted physician. He works closely with several physicians, most of whom are in the same facility as his clinic.
What complementary treatments are offered with chiropractic?
In addition to being a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Alexander is also a licensed nurse practitioner and certified in acupuncture. His range of training allows him to offer many treatments that support your chiropractic care.
In addition to prescribing medications when needed, he offers nutritional counseling, joint injections, and personalized exercise and rehabilitation regimens. He also performs platelet-rich plasma injections that accelerate healing and alleviate your pain as well as cosmetic injections.
