Improve your Body’s Motion with Chiropractic Care
A chiropractic adjustment is a controlled force applied by a professional to a restricted joint in order to restore proper motion. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to manipulate the spine and improve its motion, which causes a reduction in pain and muscle spasms. Chiropractic adjustment is particularly helpful with pain in the lower back, hips, and neck. It has also been shown to help with headaches that are caused by joint and muscle restriction.
What should I expect during a visit?
If you’ve never seen us before, we’ll do an initial exam, which will include questions about your health history and a complete physical exam. We then will take X-rays if and only if they are needed for further investigation. After that, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan for you. During your visits, you’ll lay on a padded table while one of our experienced chiropractors applies controlled movements to correct the alignment of your vertebrae.
Our chiropractors do traditional adjustments with our hands as well as use several other techniques. We use instrument adjusting when necessary which is safe for elderly patients, children, and nervous patients. We offer the adjusting style most appropriate to a patients comfort and condition. The goal of this treatment is to manage pain, realign your spine, and promote a healthier nervous system.
