Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.


What is Chiropractic Wellness?

More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a chiropractic office, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.

Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, and stress relief. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including newborns, children, and adolescents) and the outcome has been miraculous.

Chiropractic manipulation is the most used tool in chiropractic medicine and is effective at treating patients suffering from back pain and joint pain to treating Headaches and migraines. The technique most commonly used by Dr. Matt is the Diversified Technique, this for of chiropractic care is so called because it is a combination of the best techniques from other methods of chiropractic manipulation. This is a hands on technique involves a low amplitude thrust to adjust the spine and correct any joint dysfunction. This style of adjusting is gentle and safe and it continues to be the most used form of manipulation in the chiropractic field consisting solely of hand on manual adjusting – no tools or devices are used to perform the adjustment.

Dr. Matt also uses an impulse adjusting tool for CMT, this style of manipulation is sometimes preferred by the patient or after the examination may be decided that it will be more effective than the diversified technique. This technique uses a handheld tool that applies a single or multiple low amplitude thrust to the joint of focus.
