Chiropractors focus on the musculoskeletal and nervous system and the effects of these systems on general health. Chiropractic has been around for over one hundred years and is based on the premise that structural and postural imbalances in the body can impair the body’s ability to heal. We know that every cell in the body is controlled by the nervous system and when the nervous system is free to do what it is intended to do, the body’s chances of functioning at optimum levels is increased.

When we experience the negative results of stress in our lives, whether it is emotional, postural, or traumatic, our bodies can become compromised, resulting in dysfunction of the spine, joints, and nervous system. This process often times leads to the pain that many people suffer from on a daily basis.
Chiropractors diagnose and treat the effects of stress in our lives by restoring proper function to the joints by way of manipulation. Though manipulation is most often performed on the spine, it can be of great help to almost any joint that is compromised. By manipulating the joint, proper motion is restored promoting healing and healthy function. It is typically recommended that rehabilitative exercises are performed along with the manipulation to help restore strength, flexibility, and proper function. This combination has proven to be very successful in reducing and often times eliminating pain.
Chiropractors are well trained in assessing every patient through clinical examination to determine if chiropractic care is appropriate. Our chiropractors may incorporate laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging on top of the clinical examination to determine if chiropractic care is right for you. If chiropractic care is not right for you we will refer you to the appropriate specialist that can help. We readily refer patients to their family doctors or work in conjunction with the medical specialist to make sure the patient is getting the care they need and deserve.
