Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. They focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractors are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises and to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
The general surgery discipline requires a central core of knowledge encompassing anatomy, physiology, metabolism, immunology, nutrition, pathology, wound healing, shock and resuscitation, intensive care, and neoplasia. A general surgeon has specialized knowledge and experience related to diagnosis and preoperative, operative, and postoperative management, including the management of complications, in nine primary components of surgery: 1) alimentary tract; 2) abdomen and its contents; 3) breast, skin, and soft tissue; 4) head and neck; 5) vascular system (excluding the intracranial vessels and heart); 6) endocrine system; 7) surgical oncology; 8) comprehensive management of trauma; and 9) complete care of critically ill patients with underlying surgical conditions in the emergency room, intensive care unit, and trauma/burn units.
Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi.These diseases (for example Hepatitis-B and C and Tuberculosis) can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another through contact with bodily fluids; by aerosols (through coughing and sneezing); or via a vector (typically a biting insect or tick) such as a mosquito.
Internal medicine, or general medicine, is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists.
A neurologist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system is made of two parts, the central and peripheral nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Illnesses, disorders, and injuries that involve the nervous system often require a neurologist’s management and treatment, including coordination problems, muscle weakness, a change in sensation, confusion, and dizziness.
Neurosurgery, or neurological surgery, is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and cerebrovascular system.
Orthopedic surgeons perform numerous types of surgeries on patients: spine, trauma, hip and knee, foot and ankle, shoulder, and generalist needs. Common surgeries include: arthroscopy - visualize, diagnose and treat problems inside a joint; fusion - “welding” bones together using bone grafts and internal devices – such as metal rods – to heal into a single solid bone; internal fixation - holding broken pieces of bone in proper position with metal plates, pins or screws while the bone is healing; joint replacement (partial, total and revision) – when an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis; osteotomy – the correction of bone deformity by cutting and repositioning the bone; and soft tissue repair – the mending of soft tissue, such as torn tendons or ligaments.
The specialty of obstetrics and gynecology (ob/gyn) focuses on the lifelong health-related concerns of women. Obstetrics and gynecology physicians provide comprehensive care for women, ranging from primary medical and general reproductive care to treating the highly specialized needs of women before, during, and after pregnancy.
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the general medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends people receive pediatric care up to the age of 21. A medical doctor who specializes in this area is known as a pediatrician.
Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, uses mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy and electrotherapy to remediate impairments and pain and promote mobility and function.
Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two categories: reconstructive surgery or cosmetic/aesthetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery is performed to treat structures of the body affected aesthetically or functionally by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that enhance and reshape structures of the body to improve patient appearance and confidence.
A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), a physician and surgeon who treats the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. Podiatrists treat conditions created by arthritis; diabetes and cardiovascular disease; foot and ankle injuries; muscle and tendon problems; skin disorders; toe, joint, and nerve disorders; and toenail problems.
Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (an M.D. or D.O.) who specializes in mental health, including substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems, including feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or anxiousness that never seems to lift; or problems of functioning that cause everyday life to feel distorted or out of control.

An RN has also met all the other licensing requirements mandated by their state’s board of nursing. Nursing involves the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.
Vascular surgery is a surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system (arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation) are managed by medical therapy, minimally invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction. Vascular surgery involves techniques including balloon angioplasty and/or stenting, aortic and peripheral vascular endovascular stent/graft placement, and thrombolysis.
