What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the movement of joints that are subluxated (misaligned or stuck in a fixed position), performed by a Chiropractor. This movement is called an adjustment. While the focus can usually be the spine, most joints in the body can be adjusted (see the extensive list at the bottom of the page).


Our doctors adjust with their hands (Diversified technique), with a drop table (Thompson technique), or with a small instrument ​called an Activator. Joints that are subluxated, or in a fixed position, can cause nerve irritation, pain, muscle spasms and inflammation. Pain can be local (a small area of pain), diffuse (a larger area), or radiating (moving or shooting away from the affected area). 

Fun fact: there are over 200 adjusting techniques used world wide.


Our Doctors can adjust at any patient age (newborn to elderly).
