How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic detects and removes the stresses on the spine and other joints of the body. This allows the body to perform at an optimum level while reducing pain and discomfort. Your nervous system is protected by the spinal column. Since the nervous system controls all other systems Chiropractic allows it to function at 100% by removing interference between the spinal cord and the rest of the body.

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

Typically with an adjustment you will hear a “popping” sound. Certain techniques and adjustments are effective without the patient hearing it.
