What is a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system through a drug-free and hands-on approach with an emphasis on spinal manipulation. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises as well as providing nutritional, ergonomic, and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractors go through an immense amount of schooling which requires 4, 485 classroom hours through a 4 year program compared to 4, 248 classroom hours with medical school.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic takes a hands-on approach and the beauty of it is that the benefits are incredible without drugs, injections, or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate most musculoskeletal pain such as neck, back, and extremity pain by restoring and improving joint mobility. Adjustments can be done not only throughout the spine, but can be done throughout any joint in the body including the upper and lower extremities. It is critical that you maintain and improve healthy joint mobility and alignment to improve bone, joint, and soft tissue health. Chiropractic is your road to wellness and prevention. If you are in pain, you should always take the conservative approach by visiting a Chiropractor first before considering medications, injections, or surgery. It is one of the most effective long-term solutions for most musculoskeletal pain as we address the root cause of the problem.

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic not only has one of the safest track records in all of the medical industries, it also has one of the best results for neck and back pain. Chiropractic takes a conservative approach for a long-term solution. A Chiropractor should be the first medical professional you see for musculoskeletal pain before you consider drugs, injections, or surgery.
