About Chiropractic

  • Chiropractors are neuro-musculoskeletal clinicians who are trained to diagnose and treat imbalances in the muscles, joints, and ligaments.
  • These imbalances place stress on the body and may cause discomfort and pain.
  • The treatment is hands-on and may involve spinal manipulations (“adjustments”) and/or soft tissue therapies such as myofascial release.
  •   A chiropractic adjustment is a safe, controlled thrust applied to any joint, often the spine, to restore motion and relieve pain, stiffness and discomfort.
  • This a specialized treatment method perfected over years of chiropractic training at an accredited college.
