Chiropractic is a safe, natural form of healthcare that focuses on the restoration and preservation of the body’s musculoskeletal system. A chiropractic professional is trained to diagnose and treat disorders in the body’s muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, “about 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time.” Studies show that chiropractic care can be more effective than pain medication as a treatment option for low-back pain. Through spinal manipulation, chiropractors are able to reduce pain, decrease the use of medication, and assist in the maintenance and prevention of further injury.
At Solutions Chiropractic, we offer a thorough exam and utilize gentle and effective adjustment techniques to reduce your pain and suffering. We can also make recommendations with regard to diet and nutrition, exercise, and other factors that will aid in the recovery from your injury or disorder. It has been proven that chiropractic care can reduce your healthcare spending by offering alternative treatment options to medication and/or surgery.

Why offer massage therapy with chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care, when combined with the benefits massage therapy, can be more effective and longer lasting than chiropractic alone. When subluxation, or misalignment of bones, joints, and vertebra occurs, the muscles become tense. Massage therapy can aid in the reduction of muscle tension, stress, and pain and allow the manipulation of the musculoskeletal system to occur much more easily.
