Chiropractic has been around for over a hundred years healing people with musculoskeletal conditions. Our approach is a natural, non-invasive and drug free system of health care. We utilize manipulation to the spine removing nerve interference and increasing range of motion. Exercise programs to stretch and strengthen the spinal and extremity musculature, to produce better function to the body as a whole. We also use traditional non invasive physical therapy modalities to relieve pain, improve function, and decrease inflammation.
Manipulation has been proven to decrease muscle spasm, improve blood flow and soften tissues, reducing overall stress to the musculoskeletal system. In 1994 the United States Government Department on Health Care Research and Reform, published a study naming Chiropractic as the MOST effective treatment in reducing pain associated with musculoskeletal conditions.
