Benefits of Chiropractic                                     
Chiropractic care is a healthcare profession that focuses on the health and well-being of the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems of our body.  Doctors of chiropractic use a drug-free, hands-on approach to care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.  Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle coaching.

The most common therapy performed by chiropractors is known as "chiropractic manipulative therapy," also called "spinal adjustments."  The purpose of this therapy is to restore normal motion to the joints of the body.  This can have a major impact on the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems.  It can decrease degenerative changes in the bones and muscles and improve how the nervous system functions.  Restoring normal motion to joints allows the bones to return to a more proper position and your body to function as it should. 

Increasingly, research has shown the efficacy of chiropractic care for a variety of different conditions.  Most often it is used during an acute episode of neck and back pain.  It can also be used during non-symptomatic periods to maintain wellness and prevent relapses.
