Hippocrates, widely regarded as the Father of (Western) Medicine said, “First and foremost, look to the spine for the cause of disease”.
Chiropractors correct vertebral misalignments… Science indicates that interference with the body’s muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems impairs important body functions and can lower resistance to disease. These misalignments are referred in chiropractic as subluxations and are corrected with gentle adjustments administered by Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.’s). Therefore, chiropractic treatments focus on keeping the spine functioning properly to relieve pressure on connected muscles, joints and nerves.
Chiropractic Adjustments Help …Spinal adjustments can relieve ailments such as
- Neck or back pains
- Sciatic pains
- Allergies / Asthma
- Stomach problems
- Arm/shoulder pain

Chiropractic Examination - The doctor will perform a comprehensive neuro/ortho examination on all new patients. The objective is to determine whether your injury or condition would benefit from chiropractic care. Occasionally x-rays are required.
Adjustments - A specific adjustment will be applied to the involved joints to help increase mobility to the area involved and adjacent tissues. An adjustment is a gentle, precise placement of the vertebra or joint into its correct position.
