Experience the Non-invasive relief you’ve
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic medicine involves non-invasive manipulation of a joint or joints to provide relief from pain and a variety of ailments. Subluxated (restricted in movement) spinal joints can cause chemical and physical changes around the joint that can cause pain and affect the nervous system.
Short and long term causes
Chiropractic care can provide relief for a variety of common conditions. In our daily life we stress our joints through repetitive movements, and sometimes our injuries develop over long periods of time.
Other times there is a single traumatic event such as improper lifting of a heavy object. Both can be addressed through a simple adjustment by an experienced chiropractor.
