What is it?
Chiropractic care focuses on properly aligning the body’s
structures—primarily the spine—to allow for natural, surgery-free healing. A chiropractor’s goal is to
discover the source of the pain and correct the problem. We feel that minimizing the use of drugs and further invasive procedures
It’s safe, effective and conservative.
Drugs can be dangerous and do little to correct the problem. Keeping your spine functioning properly not only gets rid of
pain, but also insures that your nervous system is protected and allowed to work without interference. The nerves that control
your body run through your spine. Irritation to these nerves can lead to a host of problems covering nearly all bodily functions.
Is it safe?
Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe—actually, they’re one of
the safest kinds of medical care available. And your chiropractor has studied extensively to fully understand the body’s
systems. The chiropractic training program is comparable to the program of study for medical doctors. According to the American
Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic last year for a variety of conditions,
and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.
