Chiropractic ImageThe primary focus of Chiropractic is to reduce pain, improve function and enhance one’s quality of life. Chiropractic is a health care profession that specializes in disorders related to the spine, nervous system, and joints of the extremities, and provides treatments and prevention of these disorders. Chiropractors use natural, drugless procedures and feel conservative methods should be used before more aggressive treatments (i.e. surgery, prescription drugs).

The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation, also referred to as an adjustment, is to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints of the body which can create a reaction in surrounding tissues (muscles, nerves, ligaments) resulting in pain, spasm and dysfunction. Chiropractors are also trained in rehabilitation, exercises, wellness and prevention. Chiropractors believe the body has an innate ability to heal itself when it is functioning properly.
