About Chiropractic


What is it?
Chiropractic care focuses on proper and unrestricted joint mobility to allow for natural, surgery-free healing. A chiropractor’s goal is not to give patients drugs so they don’t feel pain, but to discover the source of the pain and correct the problem.

Why chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is designed to restore proper joint mobility.  Proper joint mobility leads to decreased muscle tension, decreased activation of pain nerves, and increased joint lubrication.  In essence, chiropractic care leads to an increase in the overall health of the joint.

Is it safe?

Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe—actually, they’re one of the safest kinds of medical care available. And your chiropractor has studied extensively to fully understand the body’s systems. The chiropractic-training program is comparable to the program of study for medical doctors. According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic last year for a variety of conditions, and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.

What problems can it address?

In addition to preventative and wellness care, chiropractic can be used to treat headaches, lower back pain, fibromyalgia, neck pain, arm and leg numbness and tingling, sciatic-type pain, shoulder pain, tennis and golfer’s elbow, and other musculoskeletal heath issues.
