Are chiropractors the same as medical doctors?

No. Each profession has its own focus and methods of practice.  Medical doctors can prescribe medications and perform surgery, although most are not trained in surgery. 

Chiropractors have always specialized in the non-surgical, and non-medication treatment of spinal problems.  Many chiropractors also treat the entire body, and some also treat non-musculoskeletal problems. 

For example, I am trained in something called functional medicine, which is training in systemic diseases, using labwork evaluation and natural supplements, to resolve and essentially cure disease.  Not just manage your disease for profit, but resolve your disease. 

Chiropractors vary in their methods of practice. Most are focused on spinal and other musculoskeletal problems. And chiropractors do not want to, nor are they trained, in pharmacotherapy/medications as a means of treatment for patients. Chiropractors, also, are not trained in invasive procedures such as injections and surgery.

Other than that, there is much overlap between chiropractors and musculoskeletal specialist medical doctors. Both doctors use physical medicine procedures as defined in the Current Procedural Terminology manual.

Dr.Craig is very caring and so compassionate about his patients and their well-being. He has helped me get the help I needed with my overall care from going back in my history to understanding what my needs are and future needs will possibly be like, only after a few visits actually three I am 100% back to being able to walk and stand without pain. We all are very surprised that I would achieve this level of healing so quickly after suffering for months then finally getting to Dr.Craig Clinic for much needed help. Thanks you so much for all you did for me, I am truly grateful for BackStrong Rehab Clinic.

I must say that Dr. Castanet is a wonderful human being. From the moment you walk through the door, providing the appropriate level of care needed is his ultimate goal. Before there is talk of payment, his concern is what bought you into his office, getting information on your condition, then the conversation begins on how he can help. I walked into his office after reading his bio and I was impressed. I suffered from 2 herniated discs. I was injured in May ‘23 and was seeing a chiropractor and a therapist. After 3 months I saw minimal improvement and 3 X-rays. I finally got an MRI and that’s when I discovered the injuries. Upon reviewing the MRI, I researched how decompression therapy was beneficial to some and I was reluctant to have any surgery. Dr. Castanet was very patient and fully explained how he could help my condition. I also was dealing with a lateral shift, meaning my hips and shoulders were not aligned. It was very uncomfortable to walk, sit, lay down, and even being seen in public was overwhelming for me. After 5 months of consistent treatments, giving constant feedback on my progress, doing daily exercises, eating healthier, and constant communication with the doctor, I can say he’s truly been a blessing in my life. I’ve gone from being in pain daily to very minimal today. No more pain medication, crutches, or back braces. I’m about 90% back to normal and steadily improving. I would HIGHLY recommend this gentleman if you are experiencing herniated disc pain. My journey took 4 months so I encourage you to be patient and remain positive throughout the process. I was suffering with depression because of the pain and Dr Castanet will contact you just to check on your progress and just to see how you’re feeling. I definitely can say he’s a friend for life and I truly, truly appreciate him and the service he provides for the community! A true professional along with a sense of humor!

Highly recommend the back strong clinic and Dr. Castanet. He truly cares about his patients. He is unlike others in this field where they will tell you to come in for adjustments whether you need it or not. He wants you to come in only as you need it. His methods really helped me recover from my first string of back issues. Unfortunately I recently injured my back in a different area but Dr. Castanet was my first call. I’m Confident he will help me get back to normal soon!

I was happy to find that all of the good things said about Dr. Castanet were true. While his treatment was not able to help me, there was no promise that it would do so. He took a lot of time reviewing my imaging and history and referred me to another Doctor. Dr. Castanet is patient and very gracious with his time. He is easy to talk with and knowledgeable. If you are having a back problem, a visit to Dr. Castanet is worth your time

Dr. Castanet was recommended to my by my sister. I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis back in September and began treatment with him in October. His knowledge, professionalism, calming presence, along with the therapy has me in a much place physically and mentally. I'm walking and standing better than before I came in. I'm still rehabbing with him now.
