What is Chiropractic:
Chiropractic is a conservative health care method to diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Using a hands-on approach, multiple techniques are employed to increase joint mobility, decrease muscle tension, and reduce pain. Chiropractic manipulation or “adjustments” help to increase mobility of a spinal segment or extremity joint that is restricted in its motion or hypomobile. They are performed by applying a controlled force manually to the restricted joint in a quick motion. It is safe for all ages, and very effective. In addition to the in-office treatments, chiropractors may recommend nutritional supplements to patients or lifestyle changes that will prevent musculoskeletal disorders in the future.
