A chiropractor is trained to identify areas in the spine and joints where pressure is causing pain. Chiropractors then manipulate the joints which ease pressure and tension on damaged muscles, ligaments, discs and nerves. The body is then in a better position to heal.
Chiropractic care emphasizes the importance of rehabilitating the frame’s ability to maintain its alignment, thereby ensuring optimal support for the body during activities of daily living as well as during periods of stress, both physical and mental. The more support the body has the better it will be able to function.
Treatment techniques vary from the traditional chiropractic adjustments to a more diversified approach such as dry needling and soft tissue therapy. This allows each patient to experience chiropractic care in a way that is comfortable for them.
