CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest and non-invasive therapies to correct and prevent joint and muscle pain. Our chiropractor will conduct a comprehensive initial assessment taking a health history, conducting manual orthopeadic tests, range of movement of joints and soft tissue, and address structural imbalances. Our chiropractor will discuss with you a diagnosis and propose a treatment plan to help restore movement, improve proper structural alignment, and provide education to help maintain and prevent recurring injury. 

 

Chiropractic care is effective in treating the back, neck, pelvis and joints. The most common and effective treatment in chiropractic care is the chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulative therapy. Adjustments are very safe and are a painless manual procedure. Our Chiropractor applies carefully controlled pressure to restore your normal body alignment. Adjustments are effective in decreasing pain, increasing joint mobility and reducing muscle tightness.

 

Stages of care by our Chiropractors

 

Relief care is provided for relief of immediate pain, restricted mobility,
and discomfort. 


Corrective care treats conditions that are more severe, recurring or chronic.

These may require a longer, more complex period of care. Corrective care

helps to restore normal function to your spine, muscles, supporting tissues,

and nerves.

 

Supportive care helps you maintain and preserve the benefits you’ve achieved

from relief and corrective care. Our Chiropractors may detect conditions in

early stages before they exhibit symptoms or reduced mobility. Continuing to

work with your Chiropractor and having periodic spinal check-ups and

treatments if recommended, will keep your spine as healthy as possible.
