Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches… particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments, and joints. DCs also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and lifestyle modification.

Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports.

It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.

After your first treatment, you may experience minor side effects like soreness for a few days, but these will soon fade. As with anything, you’ll improve at your own rate, but you can expect to notice a marked improvement after the first few trips to your chiropractor’s office. Soon, you may find yourself looking forward to your treatment days in advance.

A reasonable expectation is a three to six-week treatment plan, followed by a re-evaluation and new treatment plan based on your individual condition.
