Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “done by hand.”
The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways are impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body can result.
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutrition and exercise and healthy lifestyle modifications. Some of our additional chiropractic services include:

A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe and gentle form of therapy. Most people enjoy the experience and look forward to their chiropractic adjustment. We also treat children.
