You may have heard that chiropractic has a high success rate when it comes to treating common ailments like chronic pain, especially back pain and neck pain. 

But what exactly is chiropractic?  

A chiropractor is . . .

A primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and well-being. They focus on the prevention, diagnosis and conservative care of spine-related disorders and other painful joint issues. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching and nutritional advice.

A chiropractic adjustment is . . .

A very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Accidents, falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.

Chiropractic care costs . . .

The same as, or less than, other types of health care and is included in most health insurance plans.

Chiropractors collaborate . . .

With other health-care providers every day. They are trained to refer you to the appropriate specialist when needed.

Chiropractors use . . .

Scientific research, clinical experience, and patient preferences to provide the best care possible. Ninety-five percent of past-year chiropractic users say it’s effective, and 89 percent recommend chiropractic to their family and friends.

Chiropractic is safe, effective, affordable care.
