What Makes Us Different?
Our goal during chiropractic treatment is to improve the overall physical health of the individual, and to educate and increase health awareness.
We use various methods to heal patients and one of these is Spinal Manipulation Therapy, which is composed of different techniques that correct the joint movements of the body. We may also use Muscle Release Therapy, which helps release muscle tension and restore the normal movement of muscle tissues. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled from 15-45 minutes, longer than the average time slot other offices offer. This allows ample time for education, Low-Level Laser Therapy, individualized rehabilitation exercises and Soft Tissue Therapy. We also do not force our patients to buy treatment packages; you are able to book one appointment at a time if you choose to do so!
Our chiropractors are also certified concussion management practitioners, able to treat all types of head injuries from motor vehicle accidents, sports, or any unfortunate incident resulting in a head injury.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractors help people affected by physical injuries, illnesses, or disability through manual therapy, assistive devices, exercise prescription, and education. In your initial assessment, the chiropractic physician begins by speaking to you about the reason for your visit, followed by multiple diagnostic tests to determine the cause root of your issue. They will then speak to you about their findings and begin treatment. After your first session, the chiropractic physician may prescribe you an exercise/stretching program along with informing you how often follow-up treatments are required, along with the duration of the follow-up treatments.
How often does the chiropractic physician need to see me?
The answer differs depending on the individual, their age, medical history, and type of injury/illness/disability. There is no definitive answer to this question as your chiropractic physician will inform you how often they need to see you. It also depends on your progress and your adherence to your chiropractic physician’s instructions. An individual who does not attend treatments as often as recommended by their chiropractic physician, or an individual who does not follow at-home care instructions by their chiropractic physician, will take longer to recover than an individual who does.
Why is there a popping sound during chiropractic adjustments?
The “popping” noise you hear during adjustments is totally normal and is no cause for alarm – they are just your joints releasing tiny pockets of air.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
Chiropractic physicians perform what is called an adjustment in most cases. This may be done by the traditional technique using their hands, or for individuals sensitive to adjustments, they may use an assistive device called a Chiropractic Adjustment Tool (CAT) for hypersensitive patients. Chiropractic physicians will use a controlled, specific force to realign a spinal joint or another joint in the body that is not moving correctly or is locked up. The purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to realign the body’s structural integrity and eliminating any nervous system interference. This results in decreased pain and a better range of motion.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
Chiropractic treatments are widely recognized as one of the safest natural drug-free treatments available. Spinal adjustments are extremely safe when performed by a licensed chiropractic physician.
Is chiropractic care safe during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care is not only safe during pregnancy, but many prenatal women experience less back pain and muscular strains during pregnancy while receiving chiropractic care. The treatments will be adjusted according to which stage of pregnancy the patient is in.
