Our doctors will look at your symptoms in the context of your lifestyle and full medical history, and create an individualized treatment plan.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves. Your spinal cord is protected by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Misalignment's of spinal vertebrae and discs may cause irritation to the nervous system and affect the structures, organs and functions of the human body.
Chiropractic healthcare is based upon more than eliminating pain. It aims at improving body function by removing any interference's that exist, so that the body can be in its best position to heal itself from the inside out without the use of medicine or surgery.

Infant/Youth Chiropractic care treats the following issues:
· Ear infections
· Improving Sleeping Problems
· Breast Feeding Problems

The birth process is often when the first injury to the nervous system occurs and it is so important to have children evaluated so they form healthy nerve system patterns and have the greatest potential to express abundant health and vitality. Chiropractic care has been effective in helping babies with colic, torticollis, reflux or any digestive issue, breastfeeding difficulties, and sleep issues.
Chiropractic care is equally important for children as they grow. Falls are a common part of being a child and, when repeated frequently, can lay down dysfunctional patterns in the nervous system, causing the process of early vertebral subluxation degeneration. These early subluxations, when left untreated, can act to weaken the child’s health and manifest over time as pain, symptoms, conditions, or a general lack of vitality.
Children today have many physical, mental, and chemical stresses from long hours at school, demanding sports participation, lack of sleep, improper diet, and highly scheduled lives, that it’s important to have their spine and nervous system checked on a regular basis to be sure it’s keeping up with the child’s busy life.
Patients recovering from powerful and sometimes crippling addictions can benefit from chiropractic care as a treatment. Since chiropractic care has also been shown to reduce levels of depression and anxiety while working to stabilize mood swings, those suffering from addiction would do well to add chiropractic care to their health regimen.
Chiropractic care involves dealing with and treating the spinal column. Addiction, meanwhile, involves the pleasure center of the brain craving a certain substance. What exactly does the spine have to do with the brain’s feel-good chemicals? As it turns out, many scientific studies are revealing that abnormalities in the spinal column are directly related to unhealthy functions within the brain and nervous system. A properly aligned spinal column will promote optimal brain function.
When it comes to addiction treatment, one of our chiropractors will work to help correct the misalignment's in your spinal column. When these misalignment's are properly fixed, the nervous system can begin to function correctly again, which will allow neurotransmitters to be released in the correct manner. When the spine is misaligned, the body has a much more difficult time processing feel-good chemicals, which can make addiction to outside substances that much easier to fall back on. However, a properly aligned spinal column clears up the nervous system so that the sense of well being is no longer inhibited. This makes addiction treatment that much easier, since the body no longer needs to rely on a foreign or outside substance to feel good.
