Chiropractic is safe, simple, and effective health care. Chiropractic is a hands-on, drug-less healing art, emphasizing the correction of musculoskeletal dysfunction in the spine and other joints. At Hands On Wellness, correction is obtained using a variety of safe, effective manipulation and mobilization techniques. Muscle work, rehabilitative exercises, and advice on posture and lifestyle modification help to make the correction a lasting one. Usually people seek out a chiropractor for relief of pain. Chiropractic is also helpful for improving function and movement, optimizing athletic or dance performance, prevention of pain, and increasing overall health. Doctors of Chiropractic complete a four year doctorate program similar in scope to that for medical doctors and osteopaths, and take rigorous national and state licensing exams. All three of our doctors graduated as valedictorians at the top chiropractic schools in the country. Because not all techniques are appropriate for every patient, we are trained in many different chiropractic procedures, including traditional manipulation and low force techniques. Our doctors also have additional training in care of the extremities and soft tissue therapies. We are trained to recognize when a certain condition needs referral to an outside source and have cultivated a terrific network of doctors, therapists, and other practitioners in the area to make sure you get the most comprehensive care possible.
