Chiropractic:

  • Addresses the relationship between the structure of the spine and the function of the nervous system.
  • Relies on hands-on procedures using touch (palpation) to determine structural and functional joint dysfunctions.
  • A chiropractic adjustment is applied using hands or adjusting tools, with the aim of restoring motion and alignment to the spine and joints of the extremities.

Chiropractic Acupuncture:

  • Acupuncture is a health science which is used to treat both pain and dysfunction.
  • Needles are placed in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or  to affect a body part.
  • Early Chinese  physicians discovered an energy network just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs.
  • Energy  works in harmony with the circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary, and all other systems of the body.
