What is chiropractic?

  Chiropractic is a 100-year-old system of care that uses non-invasive means to restore and improve health. Its tools include manipulation of the joints and surrounding tissue -- including muscles, tendons, and nerves -- to treat neck and back pain , joint pain, headache, muscle aches, and other health problems.

  Throughout the years we have expanded greatly upon the basic chiropractic premise. This clinic offers successful protocols and treatment above and beyond regular chiropractic care. We offer light-force painless adjusting proceedures.




Once I see a chiropractor, do I have to go for the rest of my life?

  No. The extent to which you choose to benefit from your chiropractic care is ultimately up to you. You are the only person who can make decisions about the quality of your health & well-being. However, we do strongly urge all of our clients to consider regular chiropractic care. The long-term, lasting benefits of chiropractic care are well documented. Just as you would regularly visit the dentist for your oral health, we recommend that you visit your chiropractor on a regular basis to maintain your spinal health.



How Much Will It Cost?

  Costs vary and generally depend on the number of treatments required to effectively treat your condition. A number of studies have shown that chiropractic care is extremely cost effective when compared to other "medical" forms of care for similar conditions.

  Cost for the care offered at our clinic are extremely reasonable, especially when considering we offer results you will not achieve through regular medical and chiropractic care.

  Many health benefit plans cover chiropractic care. We accept Medicare and other selected insurance plans.. However most of our fees are paid on a cash basis, visit by visit. This is done to avoid billing and paperwork issues which helps us keep our fees reasonable.



What is a "subluxation" and how do I know if I have one?

A subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that house and protect the spinal cord. Any misalignment puts unnecessary pressure on the nerve system and damages the nerve supply to different parts of the body. Vertebral subluxations that are left undetected and unadjusted for many years can lead to symptoms of pain, diseases, and an unhealthy expression of life.

It's not easy to know when you have a subluxation, although a pain of some kind can be an indication. Abnormal posture including one shoulder higher than the other, hips not level or a head forward past the shoulders can also be indicative of a subluxation. Often, the nerves that are negatively affected because of the misalignment in the spine do not carry pain signals. This means that you can suffer from subluxations for years without any painful warning signs. However, allowing subluxations to exist in your body can negatively impact the functions of the organs in your body, which leads to a deterioration of your health. A chiropractor can detect the subluxations with their highly trained hands, and correct them effectively




Do chiropractors treat conditions other than back pain?

Chiropractors provide effective treatment for all types of soft tissue disorders and not just back and neck ailments. This includes conditions of the joints of the extremities like the ankle, knee and shoulder. What you may not be aware of is chiropractic's success in treating a number of non-soft tissue conditions like dysmenorrhea (painful menses), ulcers, migraine headaches, and ear infections in children. While we cannot claim to cure these conditions, we believe that many of these problems can be mimicked, aggravated and some times caused by disruptions in the nervous system as a result of spinal abnormalities. By correcting these spinal abnormalities like the vertebral subluxation, chiropractic has helped thousands of individuals overcome these conditions and regain control of their lives. Please refer to the "Conditions Section".


Does Chiropractic Hurt? Is it Safe?

Our clinic uses effective high speed instrument adjusting for the patient's comfort. We have used this procedure for over 30 years. Our treatments are truly "painless", and used on patient's of all ages. Compared to other forms of medical care, chiropractic is the safest form of treatment available.


How does chiropractic care help pregnant women?

  Pregnancy places additional weight and stress on a women's body. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pregnancy-related low back, leg and shoulder blade pain. It may also reduce incidences of headache and nausea. Our clinic has years of experience with the treatment of pregnant patients with light force adjustive procedures. We are also very successful with difficult fertility problems. Please ask for information on this topic.
