Chiropractic is the art of health care that focuses on the spine and joint biomechanics. The rigors of life, stress and trauma create faulty movement patterns and misalignments throughout the body. The results are loss of motion, muscle tension, nerve impingement/ interference and inflammation.

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring normal motion and joint alignment as well as decreasing secondary muscle stress and soft tissue irritation. Most people have misconceptions on the rage of conditions that can be helped by chiropractic care. Chiropractors see far more conditions besides neck and back pain. Most non-surgical orthopedic conditions affecting the knee, shoulder, hips, elbows, wrist and ankles can be helped by chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatments can help reduce headaches. Chiropractic care also appears to be beneficial in conditions like asthma, ear aches and infection, vertigo and boosting the immune system to properly combat infection.

When searching for a chiropractor it is important to understand that there are great differences between offices. Like the individual needs of the patients we treat, not all chiropractors and the techniques are the same. It is essential to find the right doctor and treatment choice to address these needs. In addition, there are many low impact, light handed techniques that can provide relief if there are reservations or misconceptions of what a chiropractic treatment entails. A good chiropractor can address your concerns and modify treatments to suit your needs and comfort level.
