What is chiropractic care used to treat?
Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
Low back pain, neck pain and headaches are the most common problems for which people seek chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic can help treat ailments like gastrointestinal problems, fibromyalgia, migraines, sports injuries, and much more.

What to expect after my adjustment?
When you receive a chiropractic adjustment, your muscles and bones are moved and stimulated. This results in the body releasing toxins. You should drink a large glass of water immediately following your adjustment and continue to drink adequate amounts of water in the following days to flush these toxins from the body.
Some people experience minor side effects for a few days after chiropractic adjustment. These may include headache, fatigue or pain in the parts of the body that were treated. Drinking enough water, maintaining a good posture, and using heat/cold will help alleviate any after-care side effects.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure, also known as spinal manipulation, is to improve spinal motion and improve your body's physical function.
Chiropractic care addresses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system disorders and their effects on the whole body health.
