Low back pain, neck pain and headache are the most common problems for which people seek chiropractic adjustment.

Chiropractic care is an outgrowth of belief in these concepts:

  • Your body has a natural ability to heal itself.
  • Your body's structure — nerves, bones, joints and muscles — and capacity for healthy function are closely intertwined.
  • Chiropractic treatment helps balance your body's structure and function and promotes self-healing.
