Chiropractic & Physical Medicine

chiro-300Chiropractic Care

The chiropractic approach to health care is holistic, with the vision to see the human body as much more than the sum of its parts. Stressing the patient’s overall well being, it recognizes that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining optimal health naturally so that the body is better able to resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical science and, as such, does not include pharmaceuticals or incisive surgery.

Chiropractic can provide relief and healing, and promote optimal functioning to a diverse range of conditions. Our chiropractors have great success treating conditions like:

  • Arthritis
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Breech and Malposition (Transverse)- Webster Technique and Acupuncture
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Disc Problems
  • Headaches, Migraines and Neck Pain
  • Injuries
  • Knee and Elbow Conditions
  • Low Back Pain
  • Pain Due to Pregnancy and Post-partum Conditions
  • Sciatica, Numbness and Tingling
  • Scoliosis
  • Shoulder conditions

In the acute stage of an injury, chiropractic and physical medicine can be very effective in relieving pain and discomfort. As your injury heals, physical rehabilitation can help you recover full use and prevent further injury. If you need additional care, you will be provided with referrals to other health care professionals.
