What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic offers safe and effective relief from pain and decreased mobility without the use of drugs or surgery. With professional help, patients can understand how chiropractic care helps to reduce stress on their body’s nervous system – an important factor in overall health since it is constantly running 24/7!

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the spine and nervous system. It involves manipulation or adjustment of the spine to alleviate pain and improve mobility, as well as soft tissue therapies to reduce inflammation and promote healing. Chiropractors also recommend lifestyle changes and exercises to support overall health and wellness. Regular chiropractic care is a preventative therapy that can help maintain proper alignment of the spine and prevent future injuries. By addressing the root cause of pain and discomfort, chiropractors can help patients find relief and improve their quality of life.

What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractic care aims to restore the normal functioning of your nervous system by finding and correcting areas where nerves are blocked or subluxated. This helps enhance communication between the brain and body, allowing for optimal performance across all bodily systems.

Subluxations in the spine can create stress and block communication between your brain and body, preventing your system from functioning optimally. Thankfully, correcting these misalignments helps restore balance to our nervous systems so that healing is possible – enabling us to feel better inside and out!

We specialize in chronic pain relief and our success stories are extensive. Many people come to us with neck, back or shoulder issues only to find that their other ailments — including migraines, headaches and digestive troubles — have also improved!

How long do chiropractic adjustments take?

The path to feeling great can begin with a single session. An initial consultation, lasting around 45 minutes will provide the groundwork for how adjustments should be made; follow-up visits are typically short and sweet at 15 minutes!
