What is a chiropractic adjustment? A chiropractic adjustment is a manual therapeutic treatment that refers to manipulating misaligned joints, especially those in the vertebrae of the back and neck. The goal is to relieve pain, improve mobility and function and reduce nerve irritability without the need for pain medication or surgery.
Our chiropractor offers all-natural chiropractic adjustments for a range of different injuries and conditions and will create a customized treatment plan to help you find the relief you’ve been looking for.
What to Expect on Your First Visit to a Chiropractor
On your first visit to our clinic, our chiropractor conducts a comprehensive assessment to determine the underlying cause of your condition and how to treat it. It's important to have knowledge of any major illnesses you have experienced, any surgeries you have undergone and medications you are currently taking.
Our doctor will ask you questions to get a true picture of your concern and general health. After pinpointing the cause of your problem, we discuss a proposed plan of management for your injury or condition.
We encourage your active participation in your therapeutic treatment plan as we work together to manage and prevent reoccurrence of the condition while addressing your needs.

How Does Chiropractic Work?
During a manual chiropractic adjustment, our doctor uses a sense of touch to detect and correct any misalignments that may be causing your issues. Theses adjustments restore your nervous system and immune system, helping you to heal naturally, reduce pain, and improve the way your body functions.
A typical chiropractic adjustment involves a short lever thrust applied to the vertebrae using an arm or specialized tool with high velocity. The targeted joint will release gas which is caused by carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen being released to relieve joint pressure. This is the audible ‘crack’ that is heard during the adjustment.
Chiropractors also educate you on your health. Depending on your condition, we may recommend special exercises to improve your alignment further and correct your condition.
We may also combine other medically therapeutic techniques such as physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, and spinal decompression to treat your health disorder naturally.
Chiropractic services offer safe and effective treatment alternatives for addressing medical complications that can place stress on your nervous system and impair your ability to heal and recover from damage and injury.
