What are Chiropractors?

Trained in general health care practices, Chiropractors are health care specialists who place an emphasis on wellness, disease prevention, nutrition and fitness with a focus on the health and function of the spine.  To provide the safest and most effective treatment all patients are appropriately examined based on their individual needs.

The spine contains the portion of your nervous system that controls and coordinates the movement of virtually all of the body's muscles and joints as well as the functions of the body's internal organs. For the spine, and the nerves it contains, to function properly the vertebrae (bones) that compose the spine must be  properly aligned with one another and the muscles surrounding the spine must be balanced in their strength.

This symmetry is lost when the vertebrae of the spine becomes mis-aligned through bad posture, physical strains, or injuries.

The balanced movement of the body is lost when subluxations cause tension in the muscles. This can lead to a variety of painful complaints and health issues. Chiropractic care corrects the problems, reduces tension and relieves the pain.

Chiropractic care is not just for adults... children benefit too. Some of the commonly treated conditions in children include:

  • Asthma 
  • Ear Pain (pseudo-infection)
  • Bedwetting
  • Poor Posture
  • Scoliosis
  • Impaired Movement Patterns
  • Headaches and Neck pain
  • Sprains, Strains and Sports Injuries

If I come to your office as a New Patient, what can I expect?

To provide the safest and most effective treatment all patients are appropriately examined based on their individual needs. A typical new patient visit would include:

  -Complete Health History 
  -Physical Exam 

  -Chiropractic Spinal Palpation

  -Orthopedic Testing 

  -Neurological Assessment

  -Nutritional Assessment 

Complicated Cases may require further testing including: X-Ray (if necessary) and Laboratory Testing (blood,urine). (Note: All conditions requiring medical care are appropriately referred.

After the exam is completed, and all test results are known, your case will be clearly and completely explained to you. You will receive a written consultation book with illustrations to make understanding the medical issues simple.

Typically, areas of muscle tension are reduced by treatment with heat, massage or other therapies. With the muscle tension relaxed, the spine can be gently manipulated and the subluxations corrected.
