Chiropractic is the healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. The word chiropractic means “done by hand”.
Care in our office begins with a thorough medical history and a complete orthopedic, neurologic, and chiropractic examination. X-rays are taken when indicated. We have x-ray facilities on the premises. After this examination we review all the findings and test results with you. Your treatment program will be explained and any questions will be answered.
Your care may include any or all of the following: Chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue (muscle) techniques, physiotherapy (ultrasound, traction, electrical stimulation, ice and heat), rehabilitative exercise and nutritional support.
We recognize the value and responsibility of working with other health care professionals and both co-treat and refer to many local physicians. If your primary care physician resists referring to a chiropractor, please refer him or her to this web site and our office for more information.
