Chiropractic care involves hands-on adjustments to your spine and joints to reduce pain and help your body heal itself. Research has found that chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment for various forms of neck or back pain. Regular appointments with a chiropractor will also reduce your need to take pain medication or undergo more invasive treatments like surgery.
The science of good health is largely dependent on a properly functioning nervous system. There are 31 pairs of nerves that exit from points between the movable bones of the spine, and they control all bodily functions. If the spine is misaligned, one or more of these nerves won’t work properly, which can lead to varied health problems.
Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to evaluate this type of disfunction and correct it.

Chiropractic treatment helps to relieve pain from conditions such as:
- Low Back Pain
- Neck Pain
What are the benefits of chiropractic care?
- Relieve neck pain
Neck pain is a common problem, especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle, sit for many hours a day, frequently bend your neck to use your phone, or have poor posture. A chiropractor will help ease your neck pain by realigning your spine and minimizing tension in your neck muscles.
- Eases back pain
Chiropractic treatment is less invasive than treatments like surgery or injections for treating short-term or chronic back pain, and continued treatment can prevent problems from arising.
- Diminishes headache/migraine symptoms
Spinal manipulation has proven to be effective at treating tension headaches and other nervous system dysfunction that originates in your neck.
- Reduces reliance on opioid pain relievers
People with chronic pain are often given prescriptions for opioid pain relievers to help manage their discomfort. Undergoing chiropractic treatment may lower your need to take these, and other, pain relievers.
- More affordable treatment for chronic back pain.
Chiropractic treatment may be a cheaper alternative to conventional treatment for chronic low back pain, and is often covered by your health insurance plan.
