As chiropractors, we understand that although our patients may be diagnosed with the same conditions, they respond differently to treatments. For this reason, there are no set treatment plans. We tailor specific care plans to meet each individual’s needs, goals, and unique medical and physical conditions. We specialize in many different ways of adjusting including low force, flexion-distraction, and diversified techniques.
Specific reasons to seek chiropractic care include, but are not limited to:
Neck and back pain
Sinus and allergy issues
Numbness and tingling
Arm and shoulder pain
Sprains and strains
