Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments. The theory is that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.
Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
What does a Chiropractor do?
Understanding what chiropractors do is pretty simple: think of aches, pains, creaks and strains. If you’ve got a problem that involves your musculoskeletal system, a chiropractor can offer alternative methods of treatment.
We do not prescribe medication; this allows us to think outside the box. A chiropractor may prescribe:
- Soft-tissue therapy: To relax tight muscles, relieve spasm and release tension in the fascia (the connective tissue that surrounds each muscle).
- Adjustments: To gently realign joints and increase range of motion.
- Joint bracing/taping (e.g., Kinesio taping): To support sprained joints or muscles as they heal.
- Exercises and stretches: To restore and maintain mobility and range of motion.
- Referrals to integrative medicine experts: For guidance on diet and nutrition to reduce inflammation and promote weight loss.
Treatments generally do not hurt. But soreness — similar to what you might feel after a workout — is a common side effect. Over time, however, your muscles adjust.
Through Chiropractic, we can treat pain anywhere in the body: in the head and jaws, the shoulders, the elbows and wrists, the hips and pelvis, and the knees and ankles.
We look at the whole musculoskeletal system and treat the root of the problem. Chiropractors make sure not only that the joints are moving properly, but also that surrounding muscles are functioning well.
Chiropractors treat problems in people of all ages. Depending on the patient, the intensity and force of treatments vary. All patients are screened to ensure that they are good candidates for chiropractic care. For example, many older patients have some thinning or softening of the bones that would rule out joint manipulation. If chiropractic care is too risky for a patient, they will guide them to the right people and resources.

Chiropractic Adjustment and Decompression: What you need to know.
What are the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment?
Chiropractic care helps reduce pain from:
- Migraines and neck-related headaches.
- Neck or spine injuries.
- Joint issues in the arms, legs, and shoulders.
What is Chiropractic Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a motorized traction therapy that gently stretches the spine. This results in a change of force and position of the spine which takes the pressure off of the spinal discs or nerves. This greatly benefits people with back pain as they age.
Cervical decompression therapy is a safe and effective treatment for conditions such as neck pain, cervical bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, cervical stenosis and even headaches. By providing an axial stretch, pulling the neck and head upward, decompression is able to relieve pressure from the joints and discs of the neck, relieving symptoms associated with these conditions. As the disc is decompressed, blood flow is promoted to the disc, which allows for repair of the disc itself.
