How does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic care is the third largest primary health care profession in the world. It offers a non-invasive, non-drug alternative to some of the significant health care problems plaguing the world today.
Chiropractic care is based on the premise that good health depends in part of a normally functioning nervous system.
Chiropractors understand that many of the body's dysfunctions can be linked to nerve interference, caused by abnormal pressure or irritation of the spinal nerves. By relieving this pressure and restoring proper nerve flow, symptoms can often be relieved and good health can be restored.
Chiropractors base this knowledge on years of study and research into the biomechanics of the human body and the cause and effect that injuries have on the spinal system, as well as the overall health of the individual.
Chiropractic research and its effectiveness in treating many common problems is readily documented. The chiropractic profession has undergone six formal government inquiries during the past 20 years.
These inquiries have found contemporary chiropractic health care to be safe, effective, and cost-effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal problems.

Massage has many wonderful therapeutic benefits including improved circulation, release of toxins, decreased muscle tension and deep relaxation. Chiropractic and massage work very well together! Many of our patients receive massage therapy in addition to chiropractic as part of their total treatment program
