What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a wellness philosophy and practice that starts with the belief that when your spine is in alignment, your body can heal most injuries and pain without medications or surgery. Alternative Wellness Clinic uses a variety of techniques to resolve subluxations (misalignments) in your spine and stimulate your autonomic nervous system (ANS) including:

  • Direct manual manipulation
  • Spinal decompression 
  • Instrument-assisted manipulation techniques

Based on your needs, they may also recommend other types of therapies and lifestyle adjustments to help your body heal, break up scar tissue, and regenerate injured body parts and organs. The goal isn’t just to alleviate current pain, but to create greater strength, health, and resilience so that you stay pain-free over the long term.

What kinds of conditions respond to chiropractic care?

Most acute and chronic pain conditions respond to chiropractic intervention. The integrated wellness experts at Alternative Wellness Clinic use chiropractic to reduce or eliminate symptoms of:

  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Shoulder and elbow pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Neck pain and whiplash
