General Chiropractic Care
Your spine is made up of 24 bones that protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord branches out between each vertebra to serve as a pathway that allows communication between the brain and the body.
When any part of the spine moves ‘out of place’ or becomes ‘misaligned’ (known as subluxation), the nerves become compressed causing various symptoms such as back pain, or numbness, depending on which part of the vertebra is affected.
Chiropractic care promotes proper alignment of the spine and other musculoskeletal parts, which optimizes the communication between the brain and various parts of the body.
Our goal is to provide a safe, appropriate, and comprehensive healing method of general chiropractic care with long-lasting, effective results.
What is a Spinal Adjustment?
A Spinal Adjustment, also known as ‘spinal manipulation’ is a term used to describe how chiropractic care is performed. It refers to the adjustment or manipulation of the misaligned vertebrae or bones to its proper position for it to function normally.
The approach utilizes various techniques such as low-amplitude (short) and high-velocity (quick) thrust which is an application of force by the use of the hand over the affected bones or joints to restore or enhance the bone and joint function.
