Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, hands-on, health care discipline concentrating on the body’s musculoskeletal system. This treatment works to place your body in alignment and is built on the foundational principle that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and it’s the chiropractor’s job to create a safe environment to facilitate this healing process.
A chiropractor can treat ailments such as back pain, headaches, high blood pressure, ear infections, arthritis and joint pain and even improve mental clarity.

Poor posture habits, such as spending extended periods of time sitting in front of a computer screen or hunched over a phone, are raising the number of people suffering from musculoskeletal injuries. Regular chiropractic adjustments can successfully restore your spinal alignment to its correct position, which enables the individual to stand straighter and removes pain caused by incorrect spinal alignment. An example of this is Sciatica–a pain in the lower back resulting from nerve compression. A chiropractor is capable of accurately diagnosing the cause of pain and determining the best form of treatment (e.g. TENS unit, Spinal Manipulation, Ice/Cold therapy, etc.) to resolve the issue.
