The practice of chiropractic consists of the examination, assessment, diagnosis, management and prevention of spinal, joint and related neuromusculoskeletal conditions. A treatment often utilizes spinal manipulation (or adjustment) which is a gentle but specific adjustment to the spinal column or other corrective manipulation designed to relieve pain and muscle spasm and improve, restore and/or enhance joint function. Our chiropractors have additional training in treating sports injuries including concussions, pregnancy and pediatrics, temporomandibular joint ( TMJ ) / jaw pain and/or dysfunction, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo ( BPPV ).

Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine which takes pressure off the intervertebral discs (gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine). Thus, bulging or herniated discs may retract which can take pressure off of the spine and allow for movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal. This treatment has shown benefit for: back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs or degenerative disc disease.
