Chiropractic care focuses on properly aligning the body’s structures—primarily the spine—to allow for natural, surgery-free healing. A chiropractor’s goal is not to give patients drugs so they don’t feel pain, but to discover the source of the pain and correct the problem.
The nervous system controls all of the body’s functions, and depends on the vertebrae in your spine to protect it. When your vertebrae are out of alignment, they can prohibit optimal operation of the nervous system, which can lead to various physical problems.
Is It Safe?
Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe—actually, they’re one of the safest kinds of medical care available. And your chiropractor has studied extensively to fully understand the body’s systems. The chiropractic training program is comparable to the program of study for medical doctors. According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million people visited doctors of chiropractic last year for a variety of conditions, and more and more medical doctors are referring their patients to doctors of chiropractic.
What Problems Can it Address?
In addition to preventative and wellness care, chiropractic can be used to treat headaches, lower back pain, fibromyalgia, neck and shoulder pain, numbness, leg pain, scoliosis, and other health issues.

The Care We Provide for You
Try to think back to a time before the pain…
It might take some imagination, but try to remember how you felt when you were at your best. Maybe you were hiking through a state park, held in the embrace of a loved one, or invigorated after a dip in the pool on a hot summer day. Maybe you felt a total body buzz and natural “endorphin high” after a really good run, workout, or massage. Whatever your particular memory of feeling ALIVE and WELL may be, we want you to feel that wonderful every time you walk out our doors.
