There are conditions of the musculoskeletal system in people of all ages. At some time in their life most people have pain while doing an activity. Commonly this is accompanied by a loss of function and a restriction in motion. People come to chiropractors for different reasons. Some come looking for relief of pain and injuries, others come looking for wellness.

Chiro practice is a form of alternative medicine dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of unverified mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. The methodology of Chiro practice is non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors believe that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system. They believe that biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the nervous system. Usually, chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding structures.

Chiro practice as an alternative treatment is generally applied to treat patients with certain types of:

Lower back pain and/or leg pain (sciatica)

Neck pain

Repetitive strains

Headaches

Sports injuries

Car accident injuries &

Arthritic pain.

While primarily focusing on treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders, chiropractors are not exclusively limited to problems with the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. For many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.  Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are able to evaluate, diagnose, treat or refer to other health care professions when necessary.
