Manual Adjustments for Back Pain

What is Chiropractic?

 

The word chiropractic comes from ancient Greek and means; done by hand.

 

Chiropractors are specialists in manually adjusting the vertebrae of the spine and extremity joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body - so you can enjoy your everyday activities as quickly as possible.

 

Chiropractors can prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.
