Chiropractic is a gentle, drug free, non-invasive treatment to dozens of conditions. It also can build a foundation of wellness for families. It is a safe and effective modality for children from birth to adulthood. My boys ages 4 and 7 have been receiving chiropractic adjustments since they were born.

Chiropractic adjustments are by appointment only. This way you get my full attention at a time that avoids you waiting for others to be seen. As a parent, I know every minute is valuable and sitting in a waiting room isn’t time well spent.

Here is a great definition by the Association of Chiropractic Colleges

“Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.”

 As a functional medicine provider, in order to treat the whole person an important node to health is structural integrity. This is where chiropractic thrives at restoring the body to optimal structure function through gentle hands on adjusting.

Here is a few of the conditions chiropractic can help support:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Ear infections
  • Neck pain
  • Pregnancy related pains
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pains
  • Colic in babies ( worked wonders on my two boys)

And many more. Find out if chiropractic is an option for you.
