Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems and how these disorders affect general health. Doctors of Chiropractic use a conservative, hands-on approach to restore and enhance the health of patients. In addition to broad diagnostic skills, chiropractors are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises and provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling.
Our chiropractors use a variety of techniques to restore joint motion, repair soft tissue injury, and relieve pain. The most common therapy performed is chiropractic manipulation, or an adjustment. An adjustment involves a quick, light force being carefully applied to restore optimal joint function. This is a gentle, safe, and effective way to improve joint mobility and reduce pain and it can be performed on almost any joint in the body. Depending on each patient, their condition, and their comfort level, chiropractic adjustments can be modified and low force adjustment tools can be incorporated.

· Low back pain
