What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an allied health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.

Chiropractic adjustments (or manipulations) usually involve a quick, gentle and precise thrust that helps add motion to spinal joints that aren’t moving correctly. Some methods use the practitioner’s hands, an instrument, a special table or the use of gravity. There are many ways to adjust the spine.

Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care?
Contrary to popular belief, a natural part of the aging process does NOT have to include chronic illness and daily pain and discomfort.
Today’s stressful lifestyle, repetitive work environments, lack of exercise and even less sleep mean we often fall prey to conditions like chronic headaches and migraines, neck, upper back and lower back pain.
