What is a Chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a primary care physician who’s main focus is that of the central nervous system and the spinal column. The cornerstone of chiropractic health treatment is spinal adjustments, often called the “adjustment”. The adjustment may involve a gentle pressure, or a quick thrust to restore normal motion to joints that have become restricted or “locked”. While manipulation may be performed by other physicians, Chiropractors have the most extensive experience and education in manipulation, performing 94% of the spinal manipulations in the United States. Numerous scientific studies have proven the efficacy, safety,cost-effectiveness and high levels of patient satisfaction of spinal manipulation from chiropractors. As a result, it is one of only two treatment protocols given the highest recommendation for the treatment of low back pain by the Agency for Health Care and Policy Research (AHCPR), an arm of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
A chiropractor performs spinal adjustments
Although most patients receive traditional manual (“hands-on”) adjustments, we also offer “low force” adjustments, performed with a highly advanced instrument. Some patients are familiar with these instrument adjustment techniques, which are often referred to as “activator”, “pro-adjustor”, or “impulse adjusting”. Although these low-force adjustments are gentle and precise. Experience has shown us that instrument adjusting can be effective when used in combination with manual adjusting. In addition, instrument adjusting is an alternative to manual adjusting. Hence with all of our treatment options, the doctor will be happy to discuss with you which adjusting techniques would be best for your condition.
The challenging task of finding ways to manage symptomatic pain can often be troublesome and even unsatisfactory. It is common for patients to come to us after enduring traditional methods of chronic pain.
We offer alternative approaches to diagnosis and treatment that are often welcome solutions, as they save on recovery time, expense and trauma to the body. Our goal is to help our patients achieve a sense of physical and emotional well being.

• Therefore any misaligned vertebrae in the spine can not only produce symptoms of pain in the body they can also cause problems to organs
• Chiropractors main focus the correction of these misaligned vertebrae in the spine also known as “subluxations”
