The objective is to restore and optimize physical structure. The objective is to optimize health.

How Chiropractic Works
The nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues, and organs, orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.
Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. The functioning of the nervous system is then negatively affected, as is the functioning of the cells, tissues, and organs that are controlled by the affected nerves.
In short, because the body’s innate healing powers are controlled by the nervous system, the correction of spinal subluxations by a chiropractor can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly unrelated health conditions.
What We Do
Using a number of unique and highly refined skills, our chiropractors check the patient’s spine, cranium and extremities for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities (vertebral subluxations). If subluxations or other abnormalities are detected, we will apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area. The adjustments reduce pain and optimize overall health while working with patients to ensure their comfort. In addition to spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue techniques such as massage and therapeutic exercise are used for longer lasting pain relief.
