Trained in general health care practices, Chiropractors are health care specialists who place an emphasis on wellness, disease prevention, nutrition and fitness with a focus on the health and function of the spine. To provide the safest and most effective treatment all patients are appropriately examined based on their individual needs.
The spine contains the portion of your nervous system that controls and coordinates the movement of virtually all of the body's muscles and joints as well as the functions of the body's internal organs. For the spine, and the nerves it contains, to function properly the vertebrae (bones) that compose the spine must be properly aligned with one another and the muscles surrounding the spine must be balanced in their strength.
