Chiropractic is a natural, hands-on method of healing. The origin of the word chiropractic is the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “effective treatment by hand”. Chiropractors correct subluxations. A subluxation means that a vertebra is out of place or misaligned, resulting in nerve interference.
Why Should I See A Chiropractor?
You may see a chiropractor if you are suffering from low back, neck or shoulder pain, arthritis, headaches, dizzy spells, poor balance, TMJ, or motor control issues.
What Should I Expect On My First Visit?
During your first chiropractic session, your doctor will give you a series of tests to help determine your condition and prognosis; this include a thorough health history, a clinical exam including orthopedic and neurological testing, x-rays (if needed) and sometimes a chiropractic adjustment.
What Does A Chiropractor Do?
Your chiropractor will feel your spine for misalignments or other unusual abnormalities. If any are detected, they will use gentle manipulation to realign the bones to there proper positioning, resulting in less nerve interference. The therapy is gentle and should not cause any pain. In addition to spinal manipulative techniques, other therapies such as massage, and dietary changes may be recommended.
What Are The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment?
The benefits of this type of therapy are numerous and some include:
- Pain Relief

Do Chiropractors Offer Any Other Services?
