Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Chiropractors, who are licensed healthcare professionals, believe that proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, can positively impact the overall health and well-being of a person.

Chiropractic treatments primarily involve manual adjustments and manipulations of the spine, joints, and other parts of the body, aiming to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote natural healing. Chiropractors use their hands or specialized instruments to apply controlled force to the affected areas, with the goal of correcting misalignments (subluxations) and restoring proper nerve function.

What is an Adjustment? Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustments of the spine.  An adjustment helps to relieve pain and restore normal function to the spine-
​so that you can get back to enjoying your activities quickly.

Why Visit a Chiropractor? There are many reasons to see a chiropractor.  Work, accidents, sports injuries, household chores, even the stress of daily living can cause wear and tear on your spine. Even if you do not have painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help you maintain a healthy spine and improve your quality of life.

Chiropractic Care Can Benefit the Whole Family Not only adults benefit from chiropractic care.  Children often experience aches, pains and postural problems as well.  Learning to walk, riding a bike, or playing sports can be hard on your child’s spine.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy There are few things in life that put more stress on your spine than pregnancy.  During this period of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care.  Many women find that their labour is shorter and more comfortable after having received chiropractic care. There are special techniques and equipment that will help make you comfortable no matter what your stage of pregnancy.
