Chiropractic is effective at providing pain relief because most causes of spinal disorders are related to abnormalities of the spine and the surrounding soft tissue structures.
Spinal misalignments (vertebral subluxation complexes) are caused by many types of stressors including physical, biochemical and emotional stress. The stresses can be a single injury or accumulated through life (eg. desk jobs - sitting for long periods of time where there is lack of motion to the spine). Lack of motion in the spine can cause headaches, neck pain, low back , sciatic and much more.
Doctors of chiropractic are specifically trained to identify and treat misalignments of the vertebrae (subluxations) and their subsequent effect on the central nervous system. The nervous system controls the operation of your entire body and since your spinal cord is an essential part of the nervous system, keeping your spine moving and pain free will help this vital system.
We aim to get you out of pain, educate you on the spine’s role in your health and assist you with any questions regarding nutrition, health, exercise and fitness so you can maintain it in the long term.

We take care of newborns to teenagers. Why? because the spine is growing rapidly through childhood. Babies fall on their bottoms frequently while learning to walk, children play, fall off playground equipment, accidents happen, teenagers slouch and get injuries playing various sports. This causes frequent spinal misalignments (vertebral subluxations complexes) which leads to pain and bad posture, which may result in poor sleep and affect overall health and development..
These days it is very difficult avoid mobile phones, tablets and computers. You may have notice that your child's head has shifted. This is called forward head posture and can lead to headaches and neck pain. We can assess your child’s posture and determine if they need help in correcting it.
