Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on primary health care discipline that focuses on treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the nervous system, spine, joints, and myofascial system. Prior to developing an appropriate treatment plan, our Chiropractor will do a full postural and/or functional assessment of your spine, which may or may not require X-rays to help further diagnose the primary cause(s). Chiropractors develop and carry out a comprehensive program of care, recommend therapeutic exercises and other non-invasive therapies, and can provide general lifestyle counseling. In addition to spinal manipulative therapy and/or spinal mobilization, your treatment will also often include postural and functional exercise, and traction to help keep you healthy and strong.
Functional Chiropractic is a unique approach in which treatments aim to address spinal imbalance, spinal muscle tension, and spinal misalignment with each visit. During the course of treatment, our Chiropractors utilize functional screens, passive and active muscle testing, manual release techniques, trigger point therapy, and vibration therapy, in addition to spinal manipulative therapy and/or spinal mobilization.
Structural Chiropractic is the optimal Chiropractic approach – designed for people who are already well and wish to maintain their wellness. Spinal manipulative therapy and/or spinal mobilizations are primarily used. In addition, other approaches such as mirror adjustments, may also be used to further address structural or functional spinal deviations.
