What can the chiropractors do for you?
Our doctors focus on diagnosing and treating patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches, as well as a variety of other musculoskeletal disorders.
Chiropractors do not use medications or surgery as treatments, but rather utilize natural, hands-on methods in conjunction with exercise and lifestyle modification.
Although most cases can be diagnosed through the history and physical examination, chiropractors may also order blood tests, MRI, CAT scans, X rays, and other diagnostic tests when necessary.
Our chiropractors have experience in treating everyone from young athletes with acute sprains to older patients with complex chronic pain, and will work in cooperation with your medical doctors as well as other practitioners to provide high quality, well-rounded care to each patient.
