CHIROPRACTIC        
 

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system.  Chiropractors usually treat disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Chiropractors are frequently the primary practitioner seen for acute or chronic pain conditions of the lower back and neck; however, we are extremely effective in treating headaches, whiplash, strains and sprains, repetitive strain injury, work and sports injuries, arthritis and limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck or limbs.

Initially, a thorough and complete health history is obtained.  The chiropractor will then perform a comprehensive exam and may require further investigation with radiographs (x-rays) to determine if you are a chiropractic candidate.  The chiropractor will determine a diagnosis and explain precisely why you are experiencing pain.  The chiropractor will then develop an appropriate treatment plan to remiss your current pain as quickly as possible, restore function to your spine, muscles, supporting tissues and the nerves affected by them.  The doctor will provide recommended therapeutic exercise, other non-invasive therapies and nutritional recommendations to help speed up the healing process.  Once the patient is free of pain, the doctor will discuss a preventative care plan to help avoid further attacks. Never hesitate to ask your Doctor of Chiropractic questions concerning your condition. He will be happy to answer all of your questions.
