If you're looking for a natural, drug-free pain relief that can help you heal and not just mask your symptoms, chiropractic care may be the solution for you. Our doctors have decades of experience helping patients to get back to living pain-free lives. Whether you've recently been injured, or your pain is degenerative and chronic, we can help.
A chiropractic doctor has completed years of specialized education to obtain a degree and become licensed to treat patients. Chiropractors are skilled in anatomy and health, with a focus on the musculoskeletal system.
If you haven’t been to a chiropractor before, you may think chiropractic adjustments only benefit the back and neck. However, all body functions—every organ, nerve, and body part—rely on the spinal cord to transmit messages from your brain. When the doctor makes structural improvements to your spine, the brain can communicate with the rest of the body more efficiently because the free flow of fluids and nerve messages is optimized. A healthy spine is at the core of overall health and allows for faster, more complete healing.
Aging, strain or injury can all cause spinal vertebrae to lose alignment, impairing a wide range of your body functions. Even in cases where a person feels no pain, a misaligned spine can interfere with the body’s natural healing processes and adversely affect their health.
Chiropractic adjustments can restore the body’s equilibrium. Our doctor will examine your spine to detect misaligned vertebrae and, using a gentle technique, move the vertebrae back into correct alignment. The technique rarely causes any discomfort, and most patients find it rather enjoyable, providing an immediate feeling of relief.
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that uses a device known as a decompression bed to gently relax and stretch the spine. Eliminating the normal downward force of gravity, the action of stretching promotes the flow of oxygen and nutrients into the spinal discs, where they enhance the healing process.
Chiropractic care can help you avoid the expensive medications that are typically prescribed for painful conditions. Chiropractic adjustments can ensure your condition doesn’t deteriorate further, and in many cases, the non-invasive treatment can help you avoid surgery. Chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and effective for a range of conditions, commonly including:
- Neck pain including whiplash and other car accident injuries
- Back pain from a herniated disc or other cause
- Pain in a joint, often a knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder
- Sports injuries
- Workplace injuries
- Migraines and other types of headaches
- Muscle weakness and fatigue
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
Benefits of chiropractic care include:
- Enhances the function of the nervous system
- Increases your range of motion
- Improves your posture
- Allows for a more active lifestyle
- Improves your mood
