Why Chiropractic?

Good health depends upon a normally functioning nervous system. Chiropractic looks to address the cause of a patient’s symptoms by locating and adjusting the part of the body that is functioning improperly. By addressing the cause, rather than simply treating the symptoms with drugs and chemicals chiropractic is able to offer a wide range of health benefits.


Recognition and respect for chiropractic as an important component of healthcare is growing. Many hospitals have established a chiropractic department. This specialty is used by professional and Olympic athletes as well.
