What do Chiropractors do?
Doctors of Chiropractic are educated on the entire body, but focus on the function of the nervous system and spine.  By correcting spinal misalignments, or subluxations, your chiropractor is ensuring your nervous system is working in peak condition. Because many conditions stem from a poorly working nervous system, these spinal adjustments often lead to better health in many areas of your life.

How does Chiropractic work?
Subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, are the true source of many of the symptoms those seeking chiropractic are suffering from.  Doctors of chiropractic are experts at locating these subluxations and correcting them by way of chiropractic adjustment.  Along with these adjustments to correct spinal misalignment, our doctors utilize exercise, spinal remodeling techniques, and physiotherapy to speed your recovery process.

What about insurance?
If you have chiropractic coverage, we can bill your insurance for your care.  We will verify your insurance, so if you are unsure of your coverage, bring in your insurance card and our office will be happy to check for you.
