Chiropractic is a healthcare specialty which focuses on neuro-musculo-skeletal therapeutic intervention. There is a focus on biomechanics and function of the spine and other bones and joints as well as the soft-tissues of the body, including: muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.  Chiropractic care utilizes manual treatment methods to improve motion and the distribution of force and load throughout the body; and can include use of Skilled Chiropractic Manipulation/Adjustments, Soft-tissue Mobilization/Manipulation, Graston Technique therapy and/or SpiderTech Kinesiology Taping. Our office also utilizes Low Level Laser Therapy as an adjunct to manual care. The goal of chiropractic care is to decrease pain and improve function, while limiting the over-reliance upon pharmaceutical or surgical intervention. This chiropractic distinctive is an indispensable alternative against the tragic and disturbing backdrop of the bourgeoning opioid crisis.
