Gentle Chiropracitc and Nutritional Consultation

The World Health Organization defines Health as: "Health is not merely the absence of disease, but a state of total physical, mental, and spiritual well being." How we achieve and maintain health can be simple or complex, depending on whether the cause and effects of the problem are addressed.

"Chiropractic" is a word derived from Greek roots, meaning "done by hand." It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system is functioning properly.

The goal is not merely to relieve the present ailment, but to analyze the underlying cause, and recommend appropriate changes of lifestyle to prevent the problem from occurring again. We believe in a risk/benefit analysis before use of any intervention. Chiropractic treatment carries NONE of the risks of surgical or pharmacologic treatment. Practitioners use a holistic approach to health.

Most people will experience back pain at some time in their lives. Injuries due to overexertion and poor posture are among the most common. Depending on the cause and severity of the condition, options for treatment may include physical therapy, rest, medications, surgery, or chiropractic care.

Chiropractic has proven in several studies to be less expensive than many more traditional routes such as outpatient physical therapy.

We also work with nutrition. The effects of internal biochemistry issues due to hormone imbalances and ingested toxins can often be helped through the use of supplements, along with dietary and lifestyle changes.
