Chiropractic heals many ailments such as Back Pain, Disc, Neck Pain, Joint Pain, Scoliosis and many more.

The treatment will start from the 1st visit and will be similar each visit with minor changes.
You will receive the chiropractic manipulation to align and free the joint in addition to physiotherapy modalities like electro therapy, ice or heat therapy, ultrasound, and exercise to strengthen the area. Depending on the case, you might be taped and foot orthotics might be ordered to stabilize your spine.

What is an Adjustment? And does it hurt?
An Adjustment is a specific gentle force done by the doctor in a precise direction, applied to a joint that fixated, "locked up", or is not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health.
You might hear a popping sound, that is just the nitrogen gas in the joint being released. It is not your bones breaking. And hearing the pop is not a must, in fact some of our treatment methods don't cause a pop. It doesnt hurt; however, if the patient is tensed it will lead to some muscle spasms that are felt the day of the adjustment and on the folowing day, and it then subsides.
