WHAT AN ADJUSTMENT ENTAILS…
Chiropractic adjustments usually involve a quick but gentle thrust, which restores motion to the spinal joints that are functioning improperly. Methods of adjusting include the doctor’s hands, an instrument, a special table, or the force of gravity.

IS CHIROPRACTIC SAFE?
Chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. Statistics show that chiropractic adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
IS CHIROPRACTIC ONLY FOR PAIN?
Chiropractic adjustments allow the nerves that exit your spine to function properly. Therefore, any function in the body can be positively effected through chiropractic. Some examples are asthma, immune function, blood pressure, etc.
IF I START, DO I HAVE TO KEEP GOING?
Absolutely not. Similar to exercise, a person can begin, stop, or continue chiropractic adjustments as desired. Spinal adjustments do not have an addictive effect, nor do they create a condition whereby a person is worse off after receiving spinal adjustments.
