Although chiropractic has long been recognized for helping back pain, it is not just for backs. Chiropractic is primarily spinal care, though we work on any joint in the body, including the feet. The spinal cord is protected by the 24 moving bones that make up your spine. Many everyday activities can cause the joints of the spinal bones to be stressed in ways that cause malpositioning or motion, resulting in a spinal malfunction called a Subluxation. A Subluxation can irritate nerves, muscles, or other soft tissues compromising function and causing pain, inflammation, numbness, weakness, etc. A chiropractic doctor is trained to find these areas of spinal malfunction and help restore joint function to a more normal position or motion. This is achieved by providing a specific force (adjustment) in a precise direction to normalize spinal function and avoid bone and soft tissue degeneration. Chiropractic is a low-risk, drug-free approach to health and healing.
Chiropractic visits can help with common ailments: headaches, arm & leg pain, TMJ, arthritis, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, disc problems/disc herniations, disc bulges, lower back pain, neck pain, rotator cuff, elbow, shoulder, sports injuries, tendinitis, pinched nerves and improper function of the nervous system.

Pediatric & Pregnancy Care
Chiropractic can help pregnant women by keeping the pelvis and spine aligned. This eliminates torque and tension on the muscles and ligaments which can provide optimal fetal positioning. Utilizing multiple skilled techniques chiropractic may help avoied added pressure and discomfort on your abdomen.
“As your baby descends into your pelvic cavity, you may feel sharp, stabbing pains at the base of your spine or in the middle of your pelvic bone, making it uncomfortable twinges of “pains and needles” in the cervix itself. Pain may radiate down your back or thighs. The increased pelvic aches and pains are likely due to the relaxation and stretching of your pelvic ligaments in preparation for labor. You can ease these discomforts by changing positions. Exercise gently every day; take long, slow walks or ride a stationary bicycle. If you cannot exercise without pain, consult your doctor. He or she may be able to recommend a chiropractor experienced in working on pregnant bodies, who may be able to give you some gentle pelvic adjustments to get your hips back in the balance. It is our personal theory that chiropractic care in pregnancy can help to avoid or relieve back pain and also prepare your back and pelvic structures for the stresses of labor and birth.”
