What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a hands on healing art which focus on the innate healing capabilities of the human body. Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or utilize surgical interventions. They assess the structural integrity of the spine, nervous system and their impact on the health of the entire body.

Chiropractors provide a precise chiropractic adjustment to restore the function and integrity to the spine and nervous system. This safe and simple adjustment has a profound impact on the body’s ability to tap back into its innate ability to heal itself and adapt to the environment.

Chiropractic Myth #1: Chiropractors focus on pain management.
While pain management is one of the outcomes of chiropractic care, the foundational use of chiropractic is based upon the essential functions of the nervous system as the master communication system of the body.

Chiropractic Myth #2: You need to be big and strong to be a good chiropractor.
Great chiropractic technique is about leverage and proper use of physics. Many of the best chiropractors in the field are not large at all. Great chiropractors come in all shapes and sizes.
