Doctors of chiropractic treat the whole body with safe, natural methods. We work the muscles for more effective adjustments, but for those looking for a gentler method (non-popping/cracking) we use light force Activator and other techniques.
The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion. Sometimes chiropractors will also use other therapies like massage, heat, electrotherapy and ultrasound.
A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.
In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also counsel patients regarding nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
