Chiropractic care is a non-invasive way to help you to achieve your optimal health. Whether you are interested in ways to relieve a complaint or in ways to better your overall health, chiropractic care is safe and effective.

Chiropractors perform a thorough history and physical examination to determine and treat the underlying cause of your complaint.
Chiropractors also assess and identify joint motion and your lifestyle habits; all of which have an effect on your health or lack of health.

Chiropractors use a combination of adjustments, soft tissue techniques and various other modalities, which aim to alleviate nervous system interference, restore joint motion, function and reduce pain symptoms. To help you achieve your full wellness potential chiropractors can design a specific program of care that will include chiropractic adjustments, nutritional advice and exercises.

It is important for you to voice any preferences or concerns that you may have about a procedure, program of care, or any particular technique as chiropractors have a multitude of techniques that can be employed to best suit your needs and desires.

Although the purpose of chiropractic is to restore proper joint and nerve function there are plenty of common conditions that are amenable with chiropractic care.

Here are a few common conditions:

Back Pain
Neck pain
Sciatica
Headaches
Shoulder pain
Hip, knee and foot pain
Jaw pain
Wrist Pain
Elbow pain
Disc Herniations
