Understanding Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body.

How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractors locate and correct structural misalignments of the vertebrae, and joint dysfunction that result in an alteration of the normal mechanical and neurological functions of the body, called the subluxation complex. A subluxation complex may not always produce pain or discomfort, but it is always an unhealthy condition.


Who Can Benefit?
Chiropractic benefits people of all ages from infants to those in their golden years. Not only can Chiropractic help to alleviate specific conditions, but it also helps to improve overall health and well-being by improving the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

How Do I Know if I Should See a Chiropractor?
Subluxations may be caused from a number of different factors. Some of the most common are physical trauma, emotional trauma, and toxicity. Doctors of Chiropractic help many people with a variety of conditions such as:

  • Neck, Shoulder, or Chest Pain
  • Low-Back Pain or Sciatica
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Joint Pain or Stiffness
  • Sports Injuries
  • Sprained or Pulled Muscles
  • Numbness and Tingling
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Susceptibility to Infection
  • Poor Healing Ability
And especially in children:

  • Frequent Ear Infections
  • Recurrent Colds and Flu
  • Colic

What is an Adjustment?
An adjustment is a safe and gentle chiropractic procedure used to eliminate or reduce a subluxation. An adjustment helps to restore proper normal mechanical and neurological function to the vertebrae and joints of the body. Adjustments are vital for the optimal health of the body.
