What is Chiropractic Care?

“Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.” – American Chiropractic Association

Using spinal manipulation and other techniques, chiropractors address the underlying conditions that are responsible for symptoms like back pain, neck pain, and chronic headaches. Chiropractic methodology asserts that treatments should be free of the use of medications or invasive therapies. Rather, patients are encouraged to adopt healthier lifestyles and eating habits to coincide with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercises that their chiropractic doctor prescribes. Numerous research has proven that patients who follow the instructions of their chiropractors often experience less muscle tightness and overall pain.
