Chiropractic care is about optimal health…how to get well faster and stay well longer.
Our bodies are exposed to many physical, chemical and emotional stresses. Our bodies react by either compensating for abnormal joint motion or contracting muscles that restrict the motion of spinal joints. This can pinch tissue, damage discs, strain muscles, sprain ligaments and possibly irritate nearby nerves. The chiropractic adjustment restores the motion in the restricted and dysfunctional spinal joints, thereby:
- Relieving pain
- Promoting full healing
- Restoring and maintaining full function
- Reducing the likelihood of re-injury
- Preventing accelerated degeneration
An initial chiropractic visit includes history, exam and treatment (30-60 minutes) while follow-up chiropractic visits (10-20 minutes) may include adjusting, soft tissue work, exercise, stretching and nutritional advice. Preventative care compliments an active lifestyle and prevents degeneration.
