What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractors use a manual approach to provide a diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care for issues relating to the spine, pelvis, extremities, nervous system, muscles, and joints.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are based on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include chiropractic manipulations of joints, soft tissue therapy, rehabilitation, and lifestyle/nutritional advice.

Activator® technique is a gentle, low-force approach to chiropractic care. It serves as both an alternative or as an adjunct to manual manipulation of the spine and extremity joints. It utilizes a hand-held device, which delivers an impulse to the joint being adjusted.
