What are Chiropractic treatments?
Chiropractic treatments, also called chiropractic adjustments, are non-invasive procedures in which a chiropractor uses a safe amount of pressure directly on the misaligned area of your spine and other joints of the body. This adjustment relieves the pressure on the joint and surrounding nerves, and most importantly, allows your spine to return to its proper position.
When performing chiropractic treatments, chiropractors focus on discovering the root cause of the problem instead of only addressing the symptoms. Treatments are focused on increasing your overall well-being.
It’s easy to get started!
Chiropractors work with you to understand your symptoms and identify the problems causing it.
Our team will work with you every step of the way to identify the right treatment and frequency of visits. As chiropractors are concerned for your overall well-being, most treatment is accompanied by exercise, diet, and other healthy living suggestions to help keep your back healthy and strong.

What are the different types of treatment?
There are different ways a chiropractor can care for you, depending on your condition. Generally, there are three levels of care, but for most people, the focus is on immediate relief. Your chiropractor will work with you to identify the best type and frequency of treatment.
- RELIEF CARE is provided for immediate pain and discomfort. Depending on the diagnosis, your age and physical condition, one visit or many chiropractic adjustments over a relatively short period of time may be necessary.
- CORRECTIVE CARE treats long-term spinal problems. Because these problems have existed for some time, they require a longer, more complex period of chiropractic care, which may include a customized exercise program.
- SUPPORTIVE OR MAINTENANCE CARE helps you maintain and enjoy the benefits you’ve achieved from relief and corrective care. Continuing to work with your chiropractor and having adjustments once in a while will keep your spine as healthy as possible.
