An “adjustment” is the term used to describe a technique used by a chiropractor to realign and balance the patient’s spine. Traditional chiropractic adjusting entails the chiropractic doctor mobilizing with his or her hands in a specific and skillful way an area of the spine. The adjustment creates a gapping effect within the joint. This relieves the local tension within the joint, reduces stress on adjacent nerves and creates many beneficial effects.

Our doctors use the latest technologies in spinal care, providing the highest level of service available.
