The question of whether or not Chiropractors can prescribe pain medication is something that many pain sufferers ask. The answer is that in most of the United States, Chiropractors are not licensed to write prescriptions for medications.
Chiropractors base their treatment on methods that involve as little medication as possible. They oftentimes partner with local physicians who can oversee the pain management aspect of their patients while they provide more of body alignment and musculoskeletal manipulation approach to provide patients with pain relief. Chiropractors treat a myriad of conditions relating to muscles and bones causing bodily discomfort and sometimes other ailments.
While most chiropractors look for alternative ways to treat patients and recommend specific lifestyle changes depending on the patient’s condition, some Chiropractors work alongside pain management physicians and primary care physicians to provide an all-encompassing plan of care.
