Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.” Chiropractic care is highly complimentary to strength training to help your body access and hold new patterns of movement. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. An adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Accidents, falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems.
Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.
