Chiropractic Care

Man on adjusting tableFrom driving to work, sitting hunched over at a desk all day or standing in a factory, our spines are under considerable stress. Mental stresses can also affect people’s health and spine. Chiropractic care can help your spine stay healthy so you can enjoy greater function, less pain and more energy.

A Natural Approach to Health Care

While the medical model looks to drugs and surgery to address a particular health condition, chiropractic is natural and non-invasive. It also addresses the underlying cause of your pain and other symptoms versus taking a bandage approach.

Here are some of the many issues for which patients seek our assistance:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Extremities issues
  • Golfer’s elbow

  • Patellar tracking issues
  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tennis elbow

No matter your age or health condition, we’ll use the best technique for your specific needs and preferences. We offer manual and instrument-assisted techniques as well as therapies to help get optimal results for you.

  • Diversified
  • Drop-Table
  • Electrotherapy

  • Flexion-Distraction

If you have never had chiropractic care before, you may be unsure of what to expect. Rest assured-we will walk you through exactly what we are going to do before we do it. You will also be given the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Before we proceed, we will make sure you are completely comfortable.

Patients under regular care often experience the following:

  • The ability to go through their daily routines with less pain
  • A decreased reliance on over-the-counter medications
  • Less frequent or less intense symptoms than they had originally such as headaches, back pain or neck pain

Do I need a referral from a physician to see you?

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

It all depends on what’s brought you in. We may first require more information like an X-ray analysis. For some patients, we can provide care on the first visit.
Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, we will provide exercises and demonstrate them so you can complete properly at home.
Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes. The Flexion-Distraction technique is very useful for people whose spines have been medically modified through surgery. Such patients require a lower force type of adjustment.
Do chiropractic and massage therapy complement each other?

Yes, massage and chiropractic go hand in hand. Both therapies work together, producing a synergistic effect that can result in quicker recovery time. The results of chiropractic care tend to last longer when muscle tension is released through massage. Many patients come in routinely for a massage and an adjustment to maintain their health.
Why should babies and kids receive chiropractic care?

Birth can cause trauma to your baby’s spine that can create problems for your child later in life. Chiropractors are trained to analyze and diagnose any potential types of spinal misalignments within infants’ spines.

We’ll gently care for your newborn and infants to give them the best foundation for a healthy life.

How can teens benefit from chiropractic care?

With growing pains and the ever-increasing demands on our teenagers, we’re seeing more and more scoliosis in teenagers. Scoliosis is a condition where your spine changes curvature (in the wrong way). Nowadays, teenagers are more prone to postural issues because of their daily life activities, such as playing video games and studying for a long time without changing their posture.

Chiropractic care and massage therapy can drastically help teenagers improve their posture, eliminate stress and ensure an active lifestyle.

Does everyone get adjusted the same way?

No, every patient’s treatment plan is modified to the individual. We would never treat a 90-year-old grandmother the same way as a 45-year-old laborer, a 10-year-old soccer player or a one-year-old infant. For our youngest and oldest patients, in particular, we use gentle, low-force methods.
Do you offer healthy lifestyle recommendations?

Yes, we’ll suggest ways you can enhance your life even more. By combining chiropractic care with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, you’re giving your body everything it needs for success.
