Non-Invasive and Drug-Free Solutions
Our chiropractors will recommend the least invasive, most effective treatment that addresses your underlying condition rather than just using prescription medication to mask your symptoms. Our non-invasive, drug-free, natural care chiropractic therapies are very low-risk compared to traditional medical procedures. Patients who want to avoid taking dangerous prescription medications or surgery can choose chiropractic care.
A spinal adjustment, also called spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment, is a therapeutic chiropractic treatment method. Our chiropractors are skilled in different extremity and spinal adjustment methods. The technique we use will depend on your age, overall health, symptoms, and the condition causing your symptoms. While spinal manipulation is performed on the spine, extremity manipulation is performed on joints outside the spine, including the jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, hip, knee, feet, and hand. Chiropractic adjustments treat pain, inflammation, edema, loss of range of motion, and other symptoms affecting the spine and joints that cause limited mobility and discomfort.
During a spinal or extremity manipulation, our chiropractors will use their hands or an instrument to slowly and gently apply a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust at the manipulation area. This action can restore the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the affected area and relieve pain, inflammation, and tenderness. Adjustments can restore mobility, improve range of motion, relieve pain, and realign the spine or joint. Adjustments can also relieve pressure, stress, and tension in key body areas to treat symptoms of sciatica, migraines, and headaches.

Importance of Regular Checkups
As with any other healthcare method, chiropractic care requires regular checkups and preventive treatments to help you maintain your overall health and wellness. During these checkups, we will assess your overall health, medical history, medical conditions, and symptoms and evaluate how well your treatment plan works for you. We will evaluate your posture, flexibility, dexterity, balance, strength, and range of motion. We may recommend diagnostic imaging like an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan to assess your condition. You will also be able to ask us any questions you have about your health, treatment plan, diagnosis, and prognosis.
