A common misconception is that chiropractic care is only good for low back pain, disc problems, neck pain, sciatica, whiplash, & other spine related problems. While it is true anyone suffering from these or similar problems should consult a chiropractic physician, chiropractic is also able to assist in correcting and stabilizing many other sources of dysfunction in the body. Far too often our health care system uses extensive and invasive procedures before a more conservative approach is taken.
We believe in empowering you to take control of your health care. Education-knowledge is that empowerment, because if you do not understand why you are doing something, the less likely you are to do it.
