Gentle chiropractic care that is safe and effective for all ages and phases of life.
The Basics of Chiropractic
Chiropractic is based on the fact that the nervous system controls every cell, organ and system of your body. Your spinal cord is covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. Chiropractors are experts at locating and correcting these areas of spinal malfunction.
Torque Release Method of Chiropractic
The chiropractic technique I use utilizes a hand-held instrument that delivers a precise, controlled thrust to the vertebrae. This thrust, called an adjustment, restores the vertebrae to a more optimal position and motion. These adjustments are safe and comfortable for all types of patients, ranging from babies and children, pregnant women, athletes and senior citizens. I also utilize physiotherapy and an innovative therapy called Kinesio Taping. This taping technique speeds healing by reducing swelling and pain and improving muscle function.
Who Should See a Chiropractor?
Anyone (no matter how young) who is in an accident or has a fall should be checked for proper spinal alignment by a chiropractor. Although most people know chiropractic is the treatment of choice for back pain, it is also effective for treating:
• Neck pain or stiffness
• Leg pain, knee pain or foot pain
• Shoulder, elbow or wrist pain
