Chiropractors are part of a mainstream health care discipline that use spinal adjustments and manual techniques as the primary methods of helping the body heal. Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractors provide care for patients of all ages with a range of acute and chronic conditions. They use a variety of diagnostic methods, including x-rays & diagnostic ultrasound, to discover the state of your musculoskeletal system.

Custom Foot Maxx Orthotics
Your feet are the basis of your posture and spinal alignment; therefore the proper proprioceptive support along with adequate movement in the ankles, arches, and toes is important for overall musculoskeletal health. Custom Foot Maxx Orthotics are a great tool to maintain postural health while staying engaged in all of your daily activities. Orthotics help to address chronic lower back conditions and may help relieve foot pain.
