As a child, Derek Strachan became interested in the workings of the human body after a doctor’s misdiagnosis almost cost him his leg. That passion to understand health and wellness led him to become a chiropractor, a practice in which trained specialists use their hands or special tools to adjust their patients bodies. The goal of chiropractic care is to keep your body in proper alignment and help the nervous system communicate with itself. In the right hands, it can be a powerful tool to help with chronic pain.
In this episode of the Major Pain podcast, Dr. Derek shares the harrowing story that pushed him towards becoming a chiropractor, describes the methods and tools he uses to help his patients, and the ways in which chiropractic care can be applied to manage or alleviate pain.
