WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?

Chiropractors provide qualified, effective diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions (muscles, joints, nerves and bones). Chiropractors are recognized as spinal care experts, but they treat all regions of the body including but not limited to shoulder, hips, upper and lower extremities. 

Chiropractors take a full health history and physical exam to help determine the root cause(s) of your pain and dysfunction. They take the whole body and person into consideration when diagnosing and managing your issues. They provide a wide variety of treatments but the most common are joint mobilization/manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise prescription, lifestyle modification/advice, acupuncture and other therapeutic modalities.
