Chiropractic is a whole body healing art. Chiropractors not only work with the spine, but also adjust the joints of the extremities, the cranium, the viscera and soft tissues depending on the needs of the patient. Chiropractic does not rely on drugs or surgery in the healing process. Instead, Chiropractic safely and gently stimulates your body's natural ability to heal itself from the inside out.
Besides relieving pain due to musculoskeletal abnormalities, one of the most important ways Chiropractic improves your health is by helping your body to communicate properly. You see, your central nervous system, found in your spine, is the body’s communications hub. Messages from your brain travel through the nervous system to the rest of your body. But injury, stress, or even day-to-day wear and tear can actually interfere with normal communications, and wreak all kinds of havoc-including pain and headaches...and even seemingly unrelated problems like asthma or allergies.
As opposed to traditional medical care, which tends to treat just the symptoms-(and with the risk of a bunch of unpleasant side-effects, too!)-Chiropractic gets right to the heart of the matter. It works to gently and naturally restore the body to its natural state of health. By restoring motion, proper nerve flow and by eliminating misalignments in the vertebrae or other skeletal abnormalities, an individual can again experience the wonder and joy of a healthy, higher quality life

A specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that has been proven highly effective in removing constraint to the uterus and allows the baby to assume the best possible position for a less traumatic birth.
A passive motion therapy that works in an upward and downward motion along the spine. This therapy acts to unlock fixations of the vertebra to allow more flexibility of the spine. It also helps to rehabilitate the ligaments along the spine to hold the alignment of the vertebra.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
EMS is a low voltage electrical current that works to cause muscle contraction, which can fatigue the muscle or reduce localized pain and inflammation. This therapy can act to relieve muscle spasms as well as rehabilitate injured muscles.
A therapeutic treatment using high-frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries. The sound vibrations penetrate the tissues deep in the body, creating a heat response. The rise in temperature increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, massages damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process.
This therapy helps rehabilitate damaged spinal discs. It decreases the bugle in the disc that may be pushing directly against the nerve. It helps restore flexibility in the spine.
Active rehab uses the joints being treated to strengthen ligaments, muscles, and tendons. It gives the body the best chance of correctly functioning, helping prevent re-injury, and resisting stress. This means you get better faster and stay healthier longer!
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are hypersensitive areas within muscles, tendons, or ligaments which can cause pain. Trigger point therapy helps muscles return to their normal resting state, thereby eliminating the pain.
This is a specific tool used to help release the tight fascia surrounding muscles to allow them to relax and hold adjustments better.
The adjustor is another way to adjust the spine in a more gentle and repetitive way. This is excellent for use in children and for those conditions that do not respond to manual adjustments.
