Chiropractic care is a complementary and alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including the spine, as well as joints and soft tissues of the extremities. Chiropractors receive special training in manual adjustment techniques which they use to adjust your spine and joints, to improve the misalignments and increase range of motion. Chiropractors also use various techniques to treat the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments), such as Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), cupping and Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) in conjunction with manual adjustments to assist the body in the healing process.
Chiropractic treatments can help with:
- Back and neck pain

- Plantar fasciitis
- TMJ dysfunction
- Motor vehicle accidents —> Whiplash
- Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Everyday stresses and strains placed on the body often cause body tissues to tighten and compresses the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the bones of the skull, spine and pelvis. Craniosacral therapy is non-invasive and uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve stress and pain, and re-establish balance in the nervous system, which then enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.
