Chiropractic is the method of improving one’s overall condition of health by the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation (VSC) and extra-vertebral subluxation complexes. The VSC occurs when there are joint dysfunctions that result in nerve interference and muscle reaction. The nervous system is the master system of the body. Physical, emotional/mental, and/or chemical trauma can cause the nervous system to dysfunction and result in VSC.

The removal of the VSC by chiropractic adjustments enables the body to achieve its optimal level of healing in accordance with its natural healing life force.

CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS provide positive effects that can be further enhanced by changes in lifestyle, which include: regular exercise, stress management, proper rest & nutrition, and may included supplementation of the diet with vitamins, minerals, and herbs. We have many supplements available at our office. Our approach enhances complete wellness care.

A doctor of chiropractic specializes in treating the patient without drugs or surgery. In addition to his/her pre-chiropractic education (the same as pre-med, pre-dental, or pre-optometry), the chiropractor has an additional 10 semesters of education at a chiropractic college.

Chiropractic is the only profession schooled in the detection and correction of the VSC. Chiropractors also have extensive education in radiology, orthopedics, nutrition, neurology, human anatomy and physiology, and many of the same classes that are taught in medical school.

The chiropractor’s extensive knowledge of the human body enables him/her to make appropriate referrals to other health care professionals, as necessary. Post-graduate education & degrees are available in sports chiropractic, neurology, nutrition, pediatrics and many others.
