What is Chiropractic?

Do you need a Chiropractor? You’ve likely heard friends mention how much their visits have helped with pain relief and other ailments but wonder what a Chiropractor can do for you.

Chiropractic Therapy emphasizes a hands on approach, using manual therapies to treat and reactivate muscular, bone, joint, and neurological conditions.  Our specific training in spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) allows Chiropractors to safely provide adjustments using highly skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of the spine, which improve joint motion, restore proper movement mechanics and improve function. 

Chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of conditions related to the muscles, bones, joints and nerves.   The Reactivate team will recommend a course of treatment that will help focus on relieving pain and improving function. 

Common conditions treated by chiropractors include : 

Neck pain, headaches, mid back pain, low back pain and sciatica, hip pain, knee and foot pain, shoulder, elbow and wrist pain. These conditions may be acute or chronic and may be from repetitive motion, or from a specific incident.
