Chiropractic Care


Good mobility is a sign of a healthy spine. Movement enables your spinal discs and joints to receive essential nutrients and to cleanse themselves of waste products. It also helps to keep your muscles strong and in balance.

Ideally, your vertebrae (spinal bones) are free to move in every direction in a smooth and coordinated way. If your vertebrae and joints are misaligned, they will not be moving to their best ability, resulting in restriction or causing interference to your nervous system. We call this misalignment, a subluxation.

Subluxations are formed as a result of stress. It can be physical, emotional, mental or chemical.

Effects of a Subluxation

When spinal bones are misaligned and not moving freely, it may have a number of effects on your life:

1. Reduced spinal function

When your spine is storing a build-up of tension and subluxations, your mobility, flexibility and posture may be affected. Your spine receives less nutrient supplies, its ability to absorb stress declines and additional pressure is placed on the surrounding joints. This may begin the process of spinal degeneration.

2. Spinal Pain

When you have the presence pf subluxations in your spine, they can be present for years before any pain or symptoms begin. By examining your whole spine, our chiropractors will be able to detect areas of concern and correct them before symptoms begin.

3. Nervous system interference

Subluxations may reduce, alter or interfere with the flow of information throughout your nervous system. Your nervous system controls all of your bodily functions and sensations. Therefore, subluxations may have a dramatic effect on your overall health and wellbeing.

Chiropractors use specific adjusting techniques to re-align your vertebrae, which may, in turn, reduced pain, improve spinal function and remove pressure from your nervous system.

Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
