Conditions We Treat

Back Pain, Auto Injuries such as whiplash, Neck Pain and Headaches are the most common conditions we treat. If you suffer from any of these conditions we can help you with Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy.


Back Pain

So many contributing factors in our daily lives make back pain a common condition. Back pain may occur due to: poor posture, sitting for an extended time, low physical activity, shoes that don’t fit, sleeping on a mattress that is too hard or too soft and many more reasons. Inflammation around the nerves of the spine can cause back pain. Chiropractic treatment will realign the vertebrae helping to relieve this inflammation. Once the spine is in proper alignment, it’s better able to support the body.


Neck Pain

Immobility resulting from neck pain can cause the muscles to become weak and to degenerate over time. Neck vertebrate allow for lots of mobility because they are small. Unfortunately, this makes the neck more vulnerable to injuries. Neck pain may occur as a result of: whiplash in an accident, poor posture, bad sleeping positions, muscle strains, repetitive stress and much more. The good news is you don’t have to keep suffering. Let us help you with the treatment needed to relieve your neck pain.


Auto Injuries

Typically the pain from whiplash in an auto accident isn’t immediate. So after an auto accident many people are unaware of possible damage to muscles, ligaments, neck and the upper back connective tissues. Unfortunately, this means many auto accident victims will deal with permanent injuries because they did not get treatment. Our experienced Chiropractors can help you avoid this and speed up your recover after an accident. We successfully treat victims so they can have a normal, healthy life after an auto accident.



We can help with frequent migraines or headaches. Our approach addresses the likely source of your migraines or headaches in the spine. Often a misalignment may irritate or compress your nervous system causing pain. Without treatment, this condition gets worse for many patients and leads to other health issues. You might get some short-term relief from medications, but Chiropractic treatment can provide lasting pain relief.

“Dr. Smith is the Best! My back was in bad shape and causing me horrible pain. I no longer suffer from pains and with my monthly adjustment I am able to keep everything aligned and healthy. I highly recommend Dr. Smith.”

Thomas P.

I threw my back out lifting heavy car parts at work.  I will put it this way, I walked into the office crooked in extreme pain and walked out straight and almost pain free.  I am definitely not a small guy and Dr.Smith was able to fix me up right . It has now been 5 months since my injury and I am still pain free.”
