How It Works


How does it work?

Chiropractic works to remove structural dysfunction in an effort to allow our body to heal itself from the inside out. Chiropractors look at the body as a whole rather than isolating the area of chief complaint and utilize various treatment options to remove joint dysfunction and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.

Spinal subluxations and misalignment can occur from a number of reasons including but not limited to trauma, sport related injuries, genetics, and normal wear and tear of daily living. While there is endless potential for mechanical or structural causes of dysfunction, hormones and chemicals within the body can play a factor as well. For example, smoking, drinking, and a poor diet can contribute to the chemical issues in your body which can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.

A chiropractor will work to remove any interference between the brain and the spinal cord caused by spinal misalignment. They will do this  through an adjustment which will assist the body to function as it was innately designed to.
