Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractic care restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference. The nervous system serves as the body's wiring. If this wiring is inhibited, the signal does not reach the intended body part, and illness may result. Such interferences can manifest anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for interferences and remove them through controlled techniques.

What to expect in your first visit
It is good to arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to fill out paperwork and address any questions you may have. Once the Doctor has had a chance to review your paperwork she will bring you into the room and discuss the reason(s) for the visit and review questions about your history. At that point we will give you a Chiropractic exam which may include, orthopedic tests, range of motion tests and palpation studies to locate pain and tenderness and any spinal misalignments or subluxations. X-rays aren't always necessary, but if they are we will refer you to an imaging lab. If appropriate, you are ready for your first adjustment. Don't worry, the adjustments are easy and are typically painless. We use the lowest amount of force necessary in order to facilitate a proper adjustment to the spine. Please allow at least 45-60 minutes for the first appointment and if you have any questions before, during, or after your adjustment, we are always here for you.
