Chiropractors can help the individual with back pain, neck pain, headaches, or other spinal pain return to a productive work life.
For the person injured in a car accident (MPI) or at workplace (WCB), we work with our patients to help them overcome their injuries and get back to living a pain-free life.
Chiropractic adjustments are commonly thought to only be used to treat back pain, however, they may be utilized on any joint in the body. Improper joint movement can reduce the effectiveness of the body's total movement, resulting in musculoskeletal pain.
Chiropractic adjustments restore motion to restricted joints and normalize overall body movement in a safe and effective manner.
Chiropractors are specially trained in spinal adjustments/manipulative therapy as well as in exercise/rehab. That way, movement dysfunction is attended to but so is strengthening, stretching, and shoring up the support structures of the frame.
Chiropractic treatment can help reduce musculoskeletal pain.

A chiropractor can help with aches, pains, and strain/sprain injuries. If you have an issue with your musculoskeletal system, when appropriate a chiropractor can provide you with non-drug therapy options.
Treatment that a chiropractor may offer includes:

- Exercises and stretches: To restore and maintain joint stability and mobility.
- Referrals: When appropriate we will assist in your referral when necessary to a healthcare provider that is more suitable to meet your health care needs.
