The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.” A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility.
Accidents, falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems.
Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance. Our doctors evaluate and treat you with personalized attention for your entire visit.

The central objective of chiropractic care is reducing pain while improving the way your body functions. These outcomes are achieved without the use of surgery or pharmaceutical interventions.
Chiropractic care is also centered on the belief that the human body is an interconnected whole. This holistic approach appeals to many men and women who take issue with the traditional Western medicine approach of simply treating symptoms as they arise.
Chiropractors believe in the power of the human body to heal itself. They work to identify and correct issues that impede your innate healing abilities. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
That structure serves to house and protect your spinal cord, a flexible and vulnerable tube that transfers signals between your body and brain. Any misalignment of the spine can place undue pressure on your spinal cord, leading to serious pain and functional issues throughout your body.
This approach is a hands-on technique that uses carefully applied and controlled force to move your vertebrae back into proper alignment. It’s the technique most commonly associated with chiropractors, and is often referred to as “back cracking.”
There are other techniques that can relieve pain and improve function. Spinal manipulation uses far less force, and gently maneuvers your spinal joints into better alignment. Your chiropractor can also mobilize or adjust other joints in your body, including your shoulders, hips, elbows, and knees.
