What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the science of locating areas of spinal joint dysfunction, the art of correcting them, and the philosophy of helping your body heal naturally.
Your body and especially your spine are subject to numerous traumas throughout the day. The way you sit, stand, sleep, or exercise all affect your spine. Lifting wrong, working too much and STRESS all have impacts on your spine known as micro-traumas. Car accidents, sports injuries or bad falls place macro-traumas on your spine. All of these may result in vertebrae losing their normal position or motion (known as a subluxation). This puts pressure on your nervous system. Correcting these subluxations and removing the interference to your nervous system will allow your body to function at its maximum ability on all levels.

Activator Methods Technique® (AMCT) is a gentle, low-force chiropractic technique that has been safely used for 35 years. AMCT evolved from 35 years of empirical study and 15 years of clinical research. AMCT doctors go through extensive training to learn specific procedures to detect spinal joint dysfunction, analyze leg length inequality, detect body mechanics problems, and test neurological reflexes. An Activator instrument is used to deliver a very specific, low force adjustment. Activator adjustments are quick and controlled. Your muscles have little time to resist. Patients enjoy the results and appreciate how easy it is to get adjusted.
