About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care approach to treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and how these affect your overall health and well-being. Patients seek chiropractic care to alleviate pain and/or as part of their overall health care routine. 

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment.” By gently manipulating bones and muscles, chiropractors can help restore motion to the affected joint or joints and restore normal nerve transmission and expression. This in turn allows the body to heal itself and perform more efficiently — often without drugs or surgery.

Chiropractic is a safe and conservative treatment approach that is appropriate for patients of all ages, including kids.

 

Benefits of Chiropractic:

Pain Relief

Many patients seek chiropractic for relief from back pain, headaches, joint pain, whiplash, sports injuries and many other conditions.

Athletic Performance

Chiropractic helps athletes recover from injury, play without pain and perform more efficiently. Adjustments restore optimal nerve supply to the muscles, enabling joints — and the whole body — to operate more efficiently. This is why so many collegiate and other competitive athletic programs have a team chiropractor onboard.  

Overall Health & Fitness

Through chiropractic adjustments, we help the body's natural ability to heal itself. This allows you to live a more healthy, active lifestyle.
