What We Do
Restore Function Of Your Spine With Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession with its own distinct principles and practice. Chiropractic has a primary focus on the musculoskeletal system and the effects on the nervous system. Chiropractic is now the third largest healthcare profession in the world after Dentistry and Medicine. Chiropractic decreases pain and improves functionality and biomechanics of the spine. Chiropractic allows patients to be healthy and well so they can do the things they want to do without having to be in pain or discomfort.
Maintenance care will allow you to address the stresses of daily life and the effects they have on your spine and body. Chiropractic treatment consists of safe, often gentle, specific adjustments to free joints and other areas of the body that are not moving correctly. This safe effective treatment is supported by advice on the use of ice, gentle rehabilitative exercise and lifestyle changes.
What We Treat
About half of all patients consult a chiropractor for back pain however chiropractors also treat a number of other conditions.
There is scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for low back pain, neck pain, and certain types of headaches including migraine as well as disorders of peripheral joints such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees and feet.
