Chiropractic care is based on the philosophy that misalignments — also referred to as subluxations — lead to pain throughout your body and other disruptive symptoms. When your spinal column is misaligned, it can compress your nerves and cause radiant pain, numbness, and weakness all over.
A chiropractor uses manual therapies known as spinal manipulations to correct misalignments in your spine, releasing physical stress and strain in your muscles and relieving pain.

Chiropractic care is a drug-free and noninvasive treatment option that relieves many painful and disruptive conditions. Schedule a consultation if you’re curious about how chiropractic care can improve your health and well-being.
Your chiropractic appointment begins with a physical exam that allows your provider to assess your physical needs and any impingements or misalignments that are limiting your movement or causing pain. Your provider may order an X-ray to study your spine in more detail. They may guide you through movements and feel your spine to check for any abnormalities.
Once your provider understands your needs, they may recommend an adjustment. In addition to the short, sharp manual pressure used to correct the alignment of your spine, your provider may also use massage to release tension and stress in your muscles and connective tissues.
Your provider may combine chiropractic care with other therapies such as acupuncture, laser therapy, and cryotherapy to reduce your pain and improve your overall health and well-being.
Chiropractic care provides many benefits including pain relief, improved mobility, and decreased secondary symptoms such as headaches and tingling in your hands or feet. It’s a drug-free, noninvasive therapy that improves nerve communication. It also enhances your body function and performance, including joint mobility, balance, and overall coordination.
