Chiropractic focuses on the neuro-muscular-skeletal system.

The neuro-muscular-skeletal system consists of the human spine and nerves. Doctors of Chiropractic remove subtle mis-alignments of the spine which interfere with the communication from the brain and body through the central nervous system.

What is a chiropractic adjustment? An adjustment is the art, science and philosophy of using a specific, controlled force in a precise direction that is applied to the spinal joint not moving properly. The purpose of this natural and safe procedure is to correct structural mis-alignments and eliminate interference in the nervous system. For the patient, this means improved spinal function, reduction in pain

and an overall improvement in health and wellness.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What types of conditions do chiropractor treat?

 

 

 

 

 

Do adjustments hurt?

Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort because minimal force and gentle pressure is used. Most patients feel relief immediately following treatment. Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your visit can help ease any discomfort to promote healing.

Are adjustments safe?

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of most back and neck problems. Spinal adjustments are extremely safe when performed by a licensed doctor of chiropractic.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

Each patient’s care is unique and therefore customized to meet their specific condition and needs. Your chiropractor will modify adjustments based on your size, weight, age and health condition.

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

The actual "pop" is called a cavitation, and it's the release of gas that makes the popping sound. The joints of the spine are called synovial joints and they produce a fluid called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid lubricates the joint (for movement) and nourishes it. The byproduct formed in the production of synovial fluid are gasses- oxygen, nitrogen and CO2. When a joint is gaped, or opened up, the gas is released and you hear a distinctive popping sound.

 

Can I see a chiropractor if I am pregnant?
