Chiropractic focuses on the relationships between the body’s main structures-the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves-and the patient’s health.  Chiropractors believe that health can be improved and preserved by making adjustments to these structures, particularly to the spinal column.

Through manual manipulation of the spine delivered to the highest standards by licenses chiropractors, chiropractic care works to restore and maintain proper communication from your brain to your body by relieving what chiropractors refer to as a subluxation, or a misalignment, or the spine.  Restoring proper alignment to the spine can assist with pain relief and prevention of:

Lower Back Pain

Studies have show that manual therapies used by chiropractors are very effective for the treatment of lower back pain, as well as the treatment of lumbar herniated disc for radiculopathy.

Upper Back Pain

There are many sources of dysfunction in the upper back (thoracic spine), especially when we consider the numerous joints and the interlacing of muscles that comprise the thoracic spine and rib cage.

Neck Pain

The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear.

Migraine & Tension Headaches

About 5 percent of all headaches are warning signals caused by physical problems. The remaining 95 percent of headaches are primary headaches, such as tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused by disease; the headache itself is the primary concern.

Shoulder Pain & Elbow Pain

Symptoms such as pain, reduced motion, loss of strength or pins and needles can occur in the shoulder and down the arm. Trauma and repetitive stress to your joints such as your shoulder, elbow and wrist can cause pain and dysfunction anywhere in the shoulder and arm.

Knee, Foot, & Ankle Pain

Knee, foot or ankle pain got you down? As you age, your chances of lower leg pain, specifically in the knee, foot and ankle increase drastically. Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and discomfort of the lower leg caused by knee, foot and ankle pain.

Sciatica

Sciatica is generally caused by sciatic nerve compression. Disorders known to cause sciatic nerve pain include lumbar spine subluxations (misaligned vertebral body/ies), herniated or bulging discs (slipped discs), pregnancy and childbirth, tumors, and non-spinal disorders such as diabetes, constipation, or sitting on one's back pocket wallet.

Fibromyalgia

Studies have linked chiropractic care and management of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as pain, fatigue and quality of sleep. One study found that "chiropractic management improved patients' cervical and lumbar ranges of motion, straight leg raise and reported pain levels."

Chronic Injuries

Our specific chiropractic adjustments are also extremely effective at removing stress from both the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It is actually this removal of stress that allows the body to heal much more quickly and efficiently than it would without adjustments.
