Our holistic approach to chiropractic care uses full-spine "Diversified" technique, massage, and non-force methods to correct spinal misalignment. We also treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal and joint problems. Our gentle, but effective methods include physical therapy and fitness programs that encourage you to enjoy a happier, healthier lifestyle. We often make dietrary and nutritional recommendations that are important in disease prevention and health maintenance. When we feel that additional testing or evaluation is appropriate, we will direct you to other competent practitioners.
Chiropractic works by activating your body's own natural healing capacity. It is a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and nerves control the repair, maintenance and and self-healing functions of your body. Thus, when your nervous system is impaired through injury or stress, tissues and organs throughout the body may begin to function poorly. This is the underlying cause of many health problems.
