Frequently Asked Questions

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body heal naturally. A chiropractor thoroughly analyzes patients for the functioning and response of the body to find the real underlying issue of the pain, symptoms and dysfunction. This helps to improve your overall wellness and quality of life. 

This is a state of nerve interference due to pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that exit the spine. The spine has a natural curvature with several nerve endings exiting from it and connecting to body tissues, organs, blood vessels, and muscles. Any misalignment either due to injury, car accidents, poor body posture, genetics, or other factors cause severe tension on and in some cases injury on these nerve endings, kind of like a kinked garden hose.

Subluxations are caused by all kinds of stresses: 1.) Physical stress such as poor posture, static sitting, childhood falls, etc. 2.) Emotional stress such as daily life stress & anxiety and 3.) Chemical stress, which is environmental toxins such as what we put on or in our bodies.

Subluxations aren’t always symptomatic! You can have a subluxation for 10 years before you notice any symptoms at all!

Chiropractic care deals with all levels of human performance. Here are some of the benefits of regular adjustments:

  • Initial relief of consistent and recurring pain, discomfort or irritation
  • Permanent corrections to misalignments
