Chiropractic Care

A Healthier You

a balanced, holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle

Chiropractic is not just about relieving pain; it’s about enhancing even the seemingly healthy person’s function, performance, and quality of life. Chiropractic looks at not only the structural but the mental, emotional, and nutritional side of wellness.

Chiropractic care ensures that the spine works properly to maximize normal nerve flow and minimize pressure on the nervous system from stress and postural strain or injury, leading to pain, dysfunction, and decreased quality of life.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

This nonsurgical technique can relieve back pain, leg pain, and other symptoms associated with disc bulges, disc herniations, and other disorders of the spine.

Trigger Points

A trigger point injection can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your arms, legs, lower back, and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and myofascial pain. Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can feel these knots when you rub your muscle. Injecting small amounts of an all-natural, plant-based anti-inflammatory and pain reliever into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain.
