Our goal is to provide a safe and comprehensive healing method of general chiropractic care with long-lasting, effective results.
Your spine is made up of 24 individual bones.
Those bones protect your spinal cord. The spinal cord branches out between each vertebra to serve as a communication pathway between the brain and your body.
When any part of your spine moves ‘out of place’ or becomes ‘misaligned’ (this is sometimes called Subluxation), your nerves can become irritated or compressed, causing different back pain symptoms or numbness, depending on which part is affected.
Chiropractors promote proper alignment of the spine and other musculoskeletal parts, optimizing the communication between the brain and various parts of the body.
What is a Spinal Adjustment?
Also known as “spinal manipulation,” a spinal adjustment is used to describe how chiropractors care for their patients. It refers to adjusting the misaligned vertebrae or bones to their proper position to function normally and without pain.
The adjustment utilizes various techniques such as low-amplitude (short) and high-velocity (quick) thrust, which is an application of force by using the hand or an instrument over the affected bones or joints to restore or enhance the bone and joint function.
