What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the only health care system that works to maximize the natural God-given strengths of the human body and its capability to heal itself
without the use of drugs or surgery.

Commonly asked questions about chiropractic services:

What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is given to align the subluxation to take pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. This will restore proper nerve supply to the body's organs and allow normal body function. An optimum functioning spine equals optimum health.

How does an adjustment take and how long will it take?
Patients report that being adjusted feels great. However, in some cases the individual may be sore for the first couple of times. An adjustment only takes a minute or two, but the vital nerve energy it releases can last for hours, days, or even weeks, depending on the stage or your care.

Is Chiropractic Safe?
While 2,000 people will die from aspirin this year and thousands more from surgery and drug reactions, chiropractic is safe, so safe that malpractice for Chiropractic costs a fraction of what other types of physicians pay.

What research has been done on Chiropractic?
Literally thousands of health studies including research by the U.S Government have shown that Chiropractic is beneficial in maximizing health, boosting immunity, relieving the symptoms of sickness and disease, and restoring normal function back to the body.

Should I be adjusted if I'm sick?
An adjustment will help your body regain control and balance to better fight off your condition.

Can I be adjusted if I had an operation on my spine,
have weak, brittle or broken bones?

There are many very gentle techniques that can be employed to assure proper safety, for newborns to elderly.

Can I be adjusted if I'm pregnant?
For normal development of the baby and ease and safety of birth, being adjusted during pregnancy is essential.

Can I adjust myself?
Even chiropractors need chiropractors to adjust them. The worst spines are those people who manipulate their own spines. Manipulation can even
be dangerous.  An adjustment moves a specific subluxation in a specific direction.
