Chiropractic health focuses primarily on spinal function and its relationship to the nervous system and good health. Chiropractic aims to remove interruptions to the flow of nerve transmission, returning the body to its natural state of health and well being. This is achieved through a procedure called spinal adjustments.
A spinal adjustment is the term used to explain the chiropractic treatment. An adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, “locked up”, or not moving properly.
The adjustment is a painless procedure. If a person is already in pain any movement can be uncomfortable. Adjustments are designed to help reduce and eliminate the pain.
Every patient is different and responds differently to care. Some patients need a little care and some need a lot. So every treatment plan is designed to each person's specific need. Although, most patients find that periodic chiropractic checkups help keep them in tip-top shape after their problem is corrected. Whatever the level of care needed, it is thoroughly reviewed so the patient understands before any treatment is given.
Some spinal problems have been neglected since childhood. These types of problems may require ongoing supportive care for optimum spinal function. These long standing problems are commonly associated with soft tissue damage, degenerative changes to the spine, and muscle weakness.
That “cracking” sound is carbon dioxide gases and air releasing from the joint. However, the noise does not have to be heard in order to be properly adjusted.

Yes! Chiropractic is good for all patients. Different techniques are used for children and the elderly due to their spine’s delicate nature. Children need chiropractic care so they do not develop the problems we see in most adults, like nerve compression and arthritis. Chiropractic care can help the elderly from developing more serious complications from their longstanding spinal and nerve related conditions.
