  • The primary course of care will most likely be specific chiropractic adjustments.  These will help return individual spinal bones to their proper motion and position.  There are many different ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore better position and motion to "stuck" or fixated spinal joints.  This may require a quick thrust, or in other instances a slow, constant pressure.  Sometimes only one area of the spine is adjusted, and other times the entire spine will receive attention.


  • Remember that you may not feel instant relief after an adjustment.  Usually stretched ligaments and swollen discs interfere with the adjustment's "holding".   Tight or spasmed spinal muscles might also be holding your vertebra in one tight position.  We will adjust the problem vertebrae into the corrected positions, but it may take several days for the muscles to relax completely and the pain to go away.  Usually, patients see improvements after three or four visits.


  • Our office also offers a full range of physical therapy equipment.  While physical therapy generally deals with only the muscular portion of spinal problems, it can be very effective when used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments.  Depending on your individual condition, your treatment may involve chiropractic only, both chiropractic and physical therapy, or only physical therapy.
