The public consensus is that that chiropractors deal with back pain. This surely is true, and if you’ve got back pain, then the chiropractor is a logical option. But, chiropractors often address all musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Muscles, tendons, ligaments and the fascia connective tissues are all part of the MSK system. 

As licensed doctors, chiropractors or doctors of chiropractic (DC) have the duty to examine and diagnose your condition. DCs are also skilled hands-on providers trained to treat MSK conditions. They clearly are the most trained in providing joint manipulation. Modern chiropractic care combines manipulation with hands-on soft tissue procedures, exercise training, nutrition and ergonomic advice, as well as other modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, low-level laser therapy, foot orthotics and sport taping, for example. This creates a package of care for all MSK conditions, from headaches to foot pain. Some obtain post-graduate certifications as well as specialist "diplomate" degrees in areas such as nutrition, neurology and sports medicine.

Much of the medical literature is prone to bias and is, in fact, wrong.  A recent article points out some of the reasons why, given a statistical association between X and Y, most people make the assumption that X caused Y.

A federal appeals court agreed to re-hear a case involving subsidies for individuals purchasing policies in the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) federally run health insurance exchanges.  The decision is widely seen as a victory for the Obama administration. "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRS' [Internal Revenue Service's] regulation," wrote Judge Thomas Griffith on behalf of the three-judge panel.
