Adjustments to the spine help to optimize our nervous system function. The nerves which exit in between the vertebrae control every part of our bodies from our brain to pinkie toes! Most people know that adjustments can help treat pain symptoms, but did you know that Chiropracic can also help treat over 2000 conditions?!
Adjustments are performed either by hand or with the assistance of an adjusting tool. Either way, the vertebrae which are out of place (which we call subluxated) are gently aligned to restore proper motion of the joint to allow optimal nerve function.
Acupuncture is traditionally performed using very thin needles (about the size of a strand of hair) placed in specific points on the body. We also offer a non-needle treatment which uses a low level laser and electrical impulse. This technique comes in handy for children and those a little leary of needles. Rest assured though, Traditional needle acupuncture is relatively painless and a very calming experience!
Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with your Chiropractic treatment to facilitate recovery. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat headaches, stress, muscle tension and more. Acupuncture is also used in treatment for smoking cessastion, bed wetting, ADHD symptoms, and even Facial Rejuvination!
