We look at things differently, and your health and goals are our top priority. Chiropractic care is more than just getting you out of pain - Pain is the last symptom to show up signaling dysfunction, but is the first thing to go away once treatment starts. We help you become as healthy & functional as possible: this journey extends beyond when pain goes away, and is the most important part of stabilizing your condition to help PREVENT future relapses or injuries.
Your body has a tremendous capacity to heal, adapt and learn. When your body is functioning properly, pain and symptoms are absent. We believe in working with patients and families to help them feel empowered and motivated to reach their goals and optimize their health. Your body is an amazing machine that has certain requirements in order to function well - we are here to help you understand and implement those through chiropractic adjustments. The following are some conditions we can treat with Chiropractic Adjustments:
Extremities (joints in arms & legs)
Headaches & migraines
Neck, midback, low back pains
Sciatica & Piriformis Syndrome
