What is a chiropractor?

We are health care professionals that specialize in diagnosing and treating neuromuscular disorders (even though we don’t limit ourselves to just dealing with issues of the nervous system and musculoskeletal system) through spinal adjustments and manipulations. The goals of chiropractic care are to reduce pain while improving functionality and movement in each and every patient.

  • Neck and back pain
  • Foot pain

  • Tennis elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Herniated disc
  • Work-related injuries
  • Leg pain/sciatica
  • Strains
  • Arthritis-related pain
  • Sports and automobile injuries
  • Headaches

What should I expect when I see a chiropractor for the first time?

Our examinations are very similar to any medical exam. We will discuss the symptoms you are having, your medical history, and discuss your goals for treatment. Then we will perform a thorough physical examination to test the movement and health of the spine. Depending on the type of condition you dealing with, we may also recommend X-rays.
