Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors are primary healthcare professionals who have completed the Doctor of
Chiropractic (DC) program at an accredited education and research facility. They are highly
trained practitioners who specialize in treating dysfunctions of muscles, soft tissues, joints,
bones, the spine, and the nervous system.

Chiropractic care is non-invasive, drug-free, and safe. It is a proven form of conservative
care that restores the neuro-musculoskeletal system to its optimal function.

Chiropractors assess, diagnose, treat, and implement preventative strategies to decrease
pain, restore function, and reduce the chance of injury recurrences.

The initial assessment will include a detailed case history and physical examination to
identify the source of pain and the underlying causes. Based on the assessment findings,
the chiropractor will develop a customized treatment plan that may include the following:

● Chiropractic Adjustments
