Care Philosophy

We use state of the art technology to locate and measure abnormal nerve activity in the spine that result from improper alignment and motion. With specific, gentle chiropractic adjustments, we reduce and remove this nerve stress and allow the body to return to the highest level of function and health as possible.

We work with children of all ages, and help abnormal spinal and nerve patterns that are common in children with ADHD, Autism Spectrum, and common conditions such as ear infections, colic and bed-wetting.

In adults, these problems can result from sudden injuries, such as car accidents, falls and workplace injuries, but more commonly accumulate slowly from months and years of gradual stresses and problems. 

We don't treat specific disorders, but we treat spinal subluxations that result in these (and other) common nerve related problems.
