What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a specialty system of health care that focuses on treating health problems by normalizing body structure, joint motion, muscle balance, and nerve function. Your chiropractic doctor helps restore health naturally through spinal care, muscle and tissue therapy, exercise, nutritional therapy, and stress management.
Who can benefit from Chiropractic treatment?
Those with new and acute health conditions, whether caused by heredity, posture, injury or gradual onset. Those with chronic or long-standing conditions that have either been non-responsive to other forms of treatment or are reoccuring. Those with permanent conditions or disabilities.
What can I expect during my first appointment?
First, call our office for an appointment. One of our friendly staff will schedule a time that is convenient for you. A consultation with the doctor will give you the opportunity to communicate your specific concerns and questions.
If your case can be helped with chiropractic care, a comprehensive examination will be completed including orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic testing. Based on your examination findings, x-rays or other types of diagnostic imaging may be necessary to help us give you the best care possible. Next, your doctor will discuss your specific health condition with you and will recommend a care program designed for your unique health problem.
