Chiropractic Therapy


The first step to a healthy, active lifestyle is a properly functioning spine. Your spinal column is what allows your body to move, twist and bend. It also helps to protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates muscles, tissue and organs. Your spine is made up of 24 independent vertebrae, and when two or more of these vertebrae aren’t functioning properly it can cause you to experience pain, discomfort, decreased mobility or other unpleasant symptoms.

Practitioners take a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. They perform a series of adjustments to realign the body so that it can properly heal itself, freeing up the immune system to better maintain health. Chiropractors utilize a combination of treatments based on the specific needs of the patient.

Chiropractic care benefits everyone from infants to seniors.
