Frequently Asked Questions

How does Chiropractic Care work?

Chiropractic works by restoring your body’s inborn ability to be healthy. When your nervous system is working at its best, all the cells, tissues and organs of your body are much more capable of resisting disease and poor health.

The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interference, such as subluxations and misaligned vertebrae, to your nervous system. With improved spinal function comes an improved nervous system.

The goal of the chiropractor is to remove interference that may be impairing normal health through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to heal itself.

A healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your keys to optimal health.
