Get to Know Us


Is chiropractic effective?

Chiropractic care corrects imbalances and misalignments to restore the body’s natural ability to maintain optimal health. By revitalizing the spine through adjustments, interferences caused by misaligned vertebrae are eliminated. This allows the nervous system to operate smoothly, improving overall health and well-being.

Why should I see a chiropractor?

Chiropractic care offers benefits beyond addressing back and neck pain. It serves as a valuable approach to maintaining optimal body performance through nutrition, adjustments, and overall wellness. Furthermore, chiropractic care has been recognized for its potential to assist with various conditions, including fibromyalgia and diabetes.

What is subluxation?

Within chiropractic care, when a vertebra is displaced or moves from its typical position, it is identified as a subluxation. Subluxations may result from various factors – from a minor slip or bump to more severe incidents such as a car accident or any sudden trauma. A subluxated vertebra begins to exert pressure on surrounding nerves, blood vessels, and tissues. This pressure carries a high cost as it disrupts the natural pathways required for brain messages to be transmitted efficiently and effectively to be properly completed.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic takes a holistic approach, believing in the body’s ability to heal itself. The brain controls body functions through the spinal cord and nerves. When this system lacks optimal function, overall performance suffers.

Chiropractors avoid drug dependency and focus on addressing underlying issues rather than symptoms. Treatment may include nutrition and supplements for long-term solutions.

Chiropractors treat more than just back and neck pain. They address soft and hard tissue problems like sciatica and joint pain. Patients seek chiropractic care for conditions like fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, and headaches, among others.

What is a chiropractic adjustment? Is it safe?

Adjustments, also called manipulation, realign the vertebrae in the spine through small movements. This corrects misalignment caused by daily activities or traumatic events. Misaligned vertebrae affect the entire body system, including muscles and the central nervous system. Chiropractors use controlled pressure with their hands or specialized instruments to reposition the vertebrae. The process is quick and painless and may produce a cracking sound known as joint cavitation as gases are released from the joint.

What can I expect from my visit to a chiropractor?

Many of us approach visiting a chiropractor with a sense of novelty. Perhaps we’ve heard about it from a friend or conducted some online research. It could be that we’ve reached a point of frustration with persistent pain and feel the need to take action. In any case, the initial visit to a chiropractor primarily revolves around getting acquainted with the practitioner and having a detailed conversation about your medical history, present condition, and the goals you want to achieve.

What results can I expect from treatment?

Chiropractic aims to address imbalances in body structure and posture to promote natural healing. This requires unobstructed flow of signals throughout the nervous system. Chiropractors identify and correct misalignments caused by incidents like sports injuries or chemical factors like unhealthy habits. By seeking chiropractic care, professionals can restore the balance of your body, optimizing its performance.

Spinal Wellness Tips


To support your body during prolonged standing, wear supportive shoes and maintain good posture. Lift your chin, pull your shoulders back, and position your feet shoulder-width apart. These steps promote a healthy spine and reduce strain while standing for long periods.

Working at a Desk

To maintain a healthy sitting position, take breaks every 30 minutes for stretches or a quick walk. Use a chair that supports your lower back with feet planted firmly on the floor and knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Use a stool or footrest, if necessary. Place your computer screen at eye level to prevent neck strain from looking downward.


Improper lifting is a common cause of injuries. To protect yourself, use a safe lifting technique. Squat down to the object with one foot ahead of the other, keeping your back straight. Lift the object by straightening your legs while maintaining a straight back and holding it close to your body. Avoid twisting while lifting and only pivot or turn your body when fully upright. When placing the object down, use the same technique.

Warming Up for Physical Activity

Before extended periods of work or play, it’s important to warm up your body. Even light activities like gardening or pushing a bike can lead to muscle strain or injury if not properly prepared. Take time to warm up your muscles and joints beforehand to reduce the risk of strain or injury.

Talking On The Telephone

When using the telephone for a long time, use a speaker or headset instead of cradling it between your neck and shoulder. This can strain muscles and vertebrae, causing discomfort or potential injury. Using a speaker or headset helps maintain a good posture and reduces the risk of strain or injury during prolonged phone use.

Resting or Sleeping

To prevent neck or back strain while sleeping, use a supportive pillow that aligns your neck and head with your spine. Avoid sleeping on your stomach to reduce stress on your neck and back. This promotes better spinal alignment and reduces discomfort or strain during sleep.
