No drugs. No surgery. Just relief.

Chiropractic care can help to relieve your pain and restore normal function to your everyday life.

Spinal manipulations (adjustments) help to allow for proper positioning and motion of the spine to encourage proper function throughout the entire body. It is a safe and effective treatment for a great number of conditions including neck pain, back pain, headaches, and pain in the extremities. Coupled with our other services, this is a powerful tool in your healthcare regimen.

Hands-on relief.

Adjustments are done using a thrust with the hands and by putting the particular area of the body in a position at its end range of motion so that the joints are more easily moved. This force often results in a “pop” sound from the joint and a sense of relief in the area being manipulated.

  • Spinal Manipulations

    An “adjustment” or spinal manipulation is used to treat a vertebral joint or segment of vertebral joints which have become stuck in an irritating or compensatory position.
