What does a chiropractor do?
Chiropractic care is a regulated health care profession that focuses on spinal, muscular, and joint pain or injuries. Every muscle, organ and tissue in your body is impacted by your nervous system. If there is interference to the normal function of your nervous system, then your spine, musculoskeletal system and the rest of your body is negatively impacted and you will likely feel pain or discomfort. Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to relieve this pain and discomfort, and to optimize the function of your nervous system and the rest of your body.
Chiropractic care focuses on restoring normal movement, relieving pain and maintaining the health of your joints, muscles and nerves. Depending on your condition, the chiropractor may manipulate parts of your spine or other joints and offer a range of supplementary treatment techniques including stretches, rehabilitative exercises, and advice on lifestyle and nutrition.

Your First Visit
Your initial appointment usually lasts for about one hour. During this time, we learn your complete medical history and conduct a physical examination. We address your posture, range of motion, reflexes, muscle strength and a number of orthopedic factors. This enables us to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Once your assessment is complete, your chiropractor will discusses the diagnosis with you and inform you of your treatment options, risks, benefits and costs. The doctor will also talk to you about your individual goals to make sure our treatment plan is aligned with your desired results. Most of the time, a course of action is confirmed in your very first session and treatment begins right away.
Depending on your diagnosis, condition and treatment plan, successive treatments usually last from 10 to 20 minutes and may include a chiropractic adjustment, muscle release therapy, soft tissue massage or other treatment methods.
