Chiropractor Basics


Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other treatments to properly align the body’s musculoskeletal structure, in order to remove nervous system interference to enable the body to heal itself.

Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints that are restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as an accident or repetitive stress.

A chiropractor will first find out a medical history, and then performs a physical examination, which may lead to lab tests or diagnostic imaging to determine the correct treatment.

Research has also shown chiropractic aid to be helpful in the treatment of neck pain and headaches. Osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used by both chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage.

Treatment plans may involve one or more manual adjustments and some chiropractors may include nutritional counseling and exercise/rehabilitation in their treatment plans.

All treatment is based on an accurate diagnosis of pain. Your chiropractor should be well informed of your medical history, including current medications, surgical history, lifestyle and any current medical conditions.

The best part?  Chiropractic harnesses your body's own innate inteligence and taps into it's unbeleviable response system.  It's 100% yours and 100% natural.  Give us a call today to help with your ailments, and if you've never given chiropractic a try, stop waiting!!
