Chiropractic FAQ's

Q: What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care focuses on restoration of spinal alignment. The most common treatment method is called spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), also known as an adjustment. Our chiropractor uses a combination of hands-on technique and low force adjustment tools to apply controlled force in a very specific way to restore mobility in the joints. The chiropractic conservative approach is hands-on, drug-free, and complex and often reduces the need for drugs and surgery with minimal risk of side effects.
