Chiropractic services are provided on a case-by-case basis. Every patient will be individually evaluated and the Doctor and patient will jointly determine what the best course of action is to take. During the evaluation, chiropractors attempt to determine the origin of the problem, not just the symptoms, so many questions are asked about lifestyle and stress levels. Chiropractors pay close attention to the spine and any misalignments of the vertebrae that protect the spinal cord.
Misalignments are referred to as “subluxations” and can cause “kinks” in the nervous systems communication. This communication problem is often the origin of the pain and these subluxations can cause many problems in the body. Pain killers can function as temporary panaceas, but the underlying neurological issues — how the brain communicates bodily functions to other parts of the body — can remain. Chiropractic treats the underlying causes of pain and provides longer lasting, natural methods of healing. Adjustments start at $38 per visit, ask for a free consultation for information on what exams are necessary (starting at $62 per visit).
