About Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a branch of the health sciences, which focuses upon the body's neuromusculoskeletal system. Since your spine is the key highway for your central nervous system, a chiropractor is trained to use a variety of diagnostic methods to examine and treat
your spine and bone structure.


Chiropractic returns the body to balance through adjustments of the spine and joints, normalizing joint motion, reducing nerve interference, relieving stress, and restoring normal body function. Adjustments can be done manually or by using an adjusting instrument.


Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat joint, ligament, muscle, and tendon problems everywhere in the body. They are also able to provide rehabilitative exercises to speed healing.


Modalities may be used during your treatments to decrease muscle spasm, decrease pain, or help breakdown scar tissue. Examples of these modalities are laser, muscle stimulation, interferential current, ultrasound, and acupuncture.
