What Is Chiropractic

Taking A Unique Approach To Feeling Better.

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It is based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The human body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In our Chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are just a part of the overall picture. Chiropractic care is a great partner in returning one to the overall health previously enjoyed. We take pride in our working relationship's with the medical community. The goal is to help our patients. Working together can only further this  goal.

While it's often perceived that the Doctor of Chiropractic is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft tissue problems such as sciatica and upper extremity radicular pain, Chiropractic has also seen great results treating conditions such as joint pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, rib pain, hip pain and symptoms associated with auto and work related injuries.
