Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care

A Doctor of Chiropractic is a highly trained health care provider who utilizes specific scientific techniques and procedures to detect, analyze, and correct the vertebral subluxation -- or, mis-alignment of the spine. Once diagnosis is made, the chiropractor performs specific adjustments of the spine to reduce the subluxation and return the vertebrae to a more normal position. This process removes interference to the normal functioning of the spinal nerves allowing the body to return to a balanced state of physiological functioning.

Chiropractic philosophy recognizes the power of the body to heal itself. The main purpose of the chiropractic physician is to facilitate this process. Chiropractors are specifically trained to reduce subluxation and the resulting nerve interference so that your body can heal itself, naturally. Regular chiropractic care can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Remember: Chiropractic doesn't cure anything -- you do!
