Our chiropractors are dedicated to treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. We pride ourselves on high-quality treatment delivered with personal attention and respect.
We begin with conservative treatments including spinal manipulation, spinal decompression, and lifestyle adjustments to treat back pain. Sometimes, we will also recommend appointments with our in-house physical therapists, massage therapists, or pain management specialists. For a very small amount of patients, we consider surgical options that are as minimally invasive as possible to minimize the risk of complications and reduce recovery time.
About Chiropractic Care
The non-invasive, drug-free, hands-on approach focuses on patient examination, diagnosis, and customized treatment. Doctors of Chiropractic are also well-versed in diagnostics, and are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, lifestyle adjustments, and proper nutrition to patients.
Chiropractors perform a therapeutic procedure known as a spinal adjustment, or a chiropractic manipulation. In most cases, back pain is caused by misalignment (called vertebral subluxation) of the spinal vertebrae. This subluxation can place pressure on nerves, causing pain and irritation and inhibiting normal communication between the brain and the tissue. A gentle chiropractic adjustment is used to realign the spine.
Similar to chiropractic care, spinal decompression gently stretches the spine by changing the force and position. As the vertebrae separate in minor increments, a vacuum is created inside the discs and correct spinal alignment is achieved. Over a period of six to eight weeks, patients can often achieve dramatic pain relief.
