What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Misalignments in joints cause other disorders by affecting the surrounding nerves, muscles and organs. The 206 bones in your body surround everything and their positioning can affect everything. Chiropractic is concerned with realigning your body to it's natural state to get you as functioning and as healthy as can be.

While manual adjustment of the spine is often referred to as a chiropractic adjustment, chiropractors can adjust just about any bones in the body. From spine adjustments to ankle adjustments, chiropractic care can assist in the treatment of just about any ailment. Headaches and migraines, back pain, neck pain, knee pain, joint pain, foot pain, shoulder pain, are some of the more common treatments, but did you know that chiropractic adjustments can also assist with sinus problems?

Chiropractic care is also an effective treatment for whiplash, scoliosis, poor posture, sciatica, numbness, and more. If you want to know specifically how we treat each and every ailment we can help with, we have pages designated for that and you can find them here.
