Chiropractic Services

Lower Back Pain

Back pain affects daily activities such as walking, standing, and climbing. Our back pain Chiropractor approaches back pain holistically. We don't only provide treatments, but we tend to other areas, including nutrition, exercises, and stretches. A combination of these tools reduces pain and improves overall health.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a type of musculoskeletal problem. Many factors can cause it. If left untreated, it can lead to debilitating pain. At our chiropractic center, we provide neck adjustments services that correct joint restrictions or spinal misalignments. This treatment reduces inflammation and improves joint functionality. Thus, neck pain and stiffness will be reduced.


When the sciatic nerve compresses or has problems, it causes pain in the leg, buttocks, hips, and back. We offer spinal manipulations and adjustments at our chiropractic center. We'll correct the spine placement and help relieve pressure off the sciatic nerve. We also use other treatment methods to manage symptoms, including Ultrasound, TENs, and NSAIDS.

Auto Accident Injuries / Whiplash

Whiplash is an injury to the neck muscles caused by trauma. It can have a severe and adverse effect on health. At our chiropractic center, we'll help you realign the spine that causes neck and head pain. We'll work on reducing neck inflammation using different therapy modalities.

Slipped Disc / Herniated Disc

The spine vertebrates are cushioned by jelly-like substances called disks. If there's enough pressure or force, the nucleus pushes against the membrane and causes disc herniation. Our Chiropractor combines spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and flexion-distraction to help relieve the pain. Our treatments don't work for only the source but the entire body.

Scoliosis Treatment

Scoliosis is an abnormal sideways or lateral curvature of the spine. It can affect all age brackets but is most common among adolescents. Scoliosis pain affects the spinal column, muscles, and tendons, causing excruciating pain. Our chiropractors are trained in all components of scoliosis. We have different scoliosis-related modalities to free you of the pain.


Migraines and headaches are common, frustrating disorders of the head. Our chiropractors can help diagnose the pain by performing spinal adjustments and manipulation. These include soft tissue therapies and massage to help alleviate pain.

Chiropractic Care For Children

Children's spines are tender and flexible. This makes it prone to injury and more complications such as scoliosis. We at our chiropractic care provide pediatric spinal adjustments, relieving numerous childhood conditions such as ear infections, colic, and asthma. Our adjustments will eradicate pressure off the spine, bones, and joints to develop your child's neural brain.

Frequently asked questions

Are chiropractic adjustments worth it?

Chiropractic adjustments have the potential to alleviate low back pain. Spinal manipulations can improve flexibility and range of motion to enhance a person’s quality of life. Persons with headaches, neck pain, and other spine-related conditions could also benefit from chiropractic adjustments. Unlike conventional treatments for various health problems, chiropractic adjustments are a safer and more natural approach.

How many times a week should you see a chiropractor?

The number of visits to the chiropractors during the week depends on the specific needs of every person. Generally speaking, a common chiropractic program requires three visits a week for two to four weeks if the condition doesn’t worsen. This is followed by evaluation when a chiropractor determines maintenance care protocol. In most cases, maintenance care involves chiropractor visits once a week or a month.

Can a chiropractor cripple you?

Serious complications from chiropractic adjustments are rare. While highly unlikely, one of these complications is a chiropractic stroke. A vast majority of patients don’t experience these complications. That’s why you need an experienced, licensed, and reliable chiropractor. 

How often should you get a chiropractic adjustment?

At the beginning of the treatment, you can expect to have more adjustments a week. Later, the frequency of weekly chiropractic adjustments reduces. During the first two weeks, most people need three to four adjustments a week. In weeks three to 10, the number of adjustments is about two to three. Ongoing care may require chiropractic adjustments every two weeks. Remember, the exact number of adjustments depends on you, reasons you’re seeing a chiropractor, e.g., the severity of the injury and treatment progress.

How long does chiropractic adjustment last?

A typical chiropractic adjustment session lasts 30 minutes. The initial visit to the chiropractor lasts a bit longer than that. During this first visit, the chiropractor asks about your health history and other info to create the best protocol for your needs.

How do chiropractors know where to adjust?

Chiropractors rely primarily on their hands to look for trouble spots. They evaluate the patient’s response to manipulation and pressure. Chiropractors also analyze palpitations (motion in the body) to determine problematic areas. Diagnostic thermography can also help determine where to adjust by helping find points of nerve pressure.

Why do you sleep better after a chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic treatment improves sleep through several mechanisms, including the relief of muscle tension that causes restlessness. Additionally, chiropractic treatments relax the body, alleviate pain and discomfort, and may stimulate blood flow. Improved function of the central nervous system also helps you sleep better. 

How do you know if chiropractic care is working?

Pain relief and improved flexibility or range of motion are telltale signs chiropractic care is working. But you may also notice changes in your psychological well-being. Your perspective of life may change; you may feel more like “you.” In other words, you may see the overall quality of life has improved.

Do chiropractors make a difference?

Chiropractors help alleviate pain and improve function through spinal adjustments. People experience reduced pain intensity, more improvement in function, less disability, higher treatment satisfaction. Many people also notice they need fewer medications. In other words, chiropractors do make a difference.

Why do chiropractors require so many visits?

Multiple visits are necessary because chiropractic care involves several phases. The first phase focuses on pain relief, the second phase is corrective care, and the final stage is wellness care. Chiropractic adjustments are a process that leads to long-term results. One visit is not enough to correct the problem that caused pain.
