Why do I need a Chiropractor?

Injuries are common.  They can happen anywhere, anytime, whether you’re training for a marathon or taking out the trash.  We’re all human and our bodies, despite our best efforts, remain vulnerable.

Most injuries come from overuse or unintentional strain, leaving both weekend warriors and soccer moms with unwanted muscle pulls, neck and back pains, or worse– damage to delicate joints and tendons.

Doctors of chiropractic diagnose these injuries through a variety of non-invasive procedures, offering specialized treatment to correct vertebral misalignment and eliminate debilitating scar tissue.

Do I need Rehabilitation? 

After an injury, it’s normal for you to experience pain, stiffness and a temporary loss of strength.  After your initial treatment, we’ll prescribe a rehabilitative program to decrease your pain and restore the damaged muscle’s strength and function.

Typical rehabilitation can include chiropractic adjustment, electrical muscle stimulation and a combination of range of motion and strengthening exercises, all of which can be done in the Doctor’s office or in the comfort of your own home.

In addition to physical treatment, we believe the rehabilitation process includes educating you as to how to best prevent further injuries.  This involves correcting the causes of your body’s imbalance as well as improving your nutrition and training habits.
