What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body).
Accidents, falls, stress, tension, overexertion, and countless other factors can result in displacements or derangements of the spinal column, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots. These irritations are often what cause malfunctions in the human body.
Chiropractic teaches that reducing or eliminating this irritation to spinal nerves can cause your body to operate more efficiently and more comfortably. This is achieved by a chiropractic adjustment. Some of these adjustments include:
Direct thrust technique
Indirect positional technique
Cervical spine manipulation

An initial chiropractic consultation will include a thorough case history and detailed examination to determine the need and appropriateness of chiropractic care.
The major purpose of the examination is to analyze the condition of your spine and nervous system and it’s functioning. The examination is a logical, step-by-step neuro-mechanical process, which attempts to identify distinct and predictable patterns of functional loss.
Remember: No matter what your age, feeling any kind of pain is NOT normal!
