Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, particularly those that affect the spine. It is based on the principle that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and that the healing process can be facilitated through manual manipulation of the spine and other joints.

Benefits of

Chiropractic Care​​​​​​​

While chiropractic care is often associated with the treatment of back pain, it also offers a wide range of benefits that can improve
overall health and wellness. Here are some of the main benefits of chiropractic care:

Pain Relief

One of the primary benefits of chiropractic care is pain relief. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to manipulate the spine and other joints in the body, which can help alleviate pain caused by injuries, poor posture, and other musculoskeletal issues. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who suffer from chronic pain, as chiropractic care can provide a drug-free alternative to pain management.

Improved Range of Motion

Chiropractic care can also help improve range of motion in the joints. By manipulating the spine and other joints in the body, chiropractors can help reduce stiffness and increase flexibility, which can improve overall mobility.

Improved Athletic Performance

In addition to improving range of motion, chiropractic care can help improve athletic performance. By addressing imbalances in the body and improving joint mobility, chiropractors can help athletes move more efficiently and reduce their risk of injury.

Improved Overall Health

Finally, chiropractic care can have a positive impact on overall health and wellness. By promoting proper alignment and function of the spine and other joints, chiropractors can help improve the body's natural healing processes and boost the immune system. This can lead to a range of health benefits, including improved digestion, better sleep, and reduced stress.

History of

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care was founded in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer, a self-taught healer from Iowa. Palmer believed that misalignments in the spine, which he called "subluxations," caused interference with the nervous system and led to a variety of health problems. He developed a technique of spinal manipulation to correct these subluxations and restore health.

​​​​​​​Over the years, chiropractic care has evolved and expanded to include a variety of techniques and approaches. Today, chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who undergo extensive training and education in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

Chiropractic Techniques

Chiropractic care encompasses a variety of techniques and approaches, including:

  • Spinal manipulation

  • Soft tissue therapy

  • Exercise and rehabilitation

Chiropractors may also use modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and heat or ice therapy to help relieve pain and promote healing.

One of the most common techniques used by chiropractors is spinal manipulation, also known as an adjustment. This involves applying a controlled force to the spine to correct subluxations and restore proper alignment and function. Another common technique is soft tissue therapy, which involves applying firm, direct pressure to a hypertonic muscle. The muscle is then stretched and, in some cases, taped. This technique is primarily used to loosen tight muscles and reduce muscle pain.

Philosophy of

Chiropractic Care

The philosophy of chiropractic care is based on the principle that the body is generally capable of healing itself. Chiropractors believe that by removing interference to the nervous system, the body can function at its optimal level and heal itself naturally.

​​​​​​​Chiropractors also place a strong emphasis on patient education and empowerment. They believe that patients should take an active role in their own healthcare and work with their chiropractor to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their unique needs and goals.

Conditions Treated by

Chiropractic Care​​​​​​​

Chiropractic care can be effective in treating a variety of issues, including:

Back Pain

Chiropractors can help alleviate back pain by restoring proper alignment to the spine, reducing pressure on the nerves, and improving circulation. They may use spinal manipulation, massage therapy, and other techniques to help reduce pain and improve function.

Neck Pain

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, muscle strain, and whiplash. Many of the chiropractic treatments that alleviate back pain are also effective in alleviating neck pain.

Headaches and Migraines

Headaches and migraines can have many different causes, including tension, stress, and even poor posture. By restoring proper alignment to the spine, reducing pressure on the nerves, and improving circulation, chiropractic care can reduce or eliminate headaches and migraines.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries can range from minor sprains and strains to more serious injuries like fractures and dislocations. Many elements of chiropractic treatment can help heal these injuries. These include improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and restoring the spine’s alignment.


Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, typically affecting the lower back, buttocks, and legs. We use spinal adjustments to alleviate pressure on the nerve and address the underlying causes of sciatica. By improving spinal alignment, reducing inflammation, and promoting healing, chiropractic care can help relieve pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall function for individuals suffering from sciatica.

Disc Injuries (herniation and bulges)

Through gentle spinal adjustments, we aim to alleviate pressure on the affected discs, reduce inflammation, and promote the natural healing process. These adjustments help restore proper alignment of the spine, relieving stress on the discs and reducing the likelihood of further injury. Additionally, we may utilize other techniques to strengthen the surrounding muscles, improve flexibility, and provide pain relief.
