Understanding Chiropractic Care

Our Chiropractors utilize a safe procedure called a spinal adjustment to provide patients with drug-free pain relief. Spinal adjustments treat symptoms caused by subluxations helping the body heal naturally and restore normal functions.

A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of one or more of the movable bones that make up the spine. Auto accidents, bad sleeping habits, sports injuries, poor posture and work injuries are a few common things that lead to subluxations. Nerve interference will happen when the spine is misaligned resulting in a number of body function issues.

Not everyone knows that Chiropractic Care has an excellent record of treating symptoms such as numbness, hip pain, back pain and headaches neck pain. But as the number of positive patient experiences increases, more and more people understand the benefits of Chiropractic personally.
