Chiropractors are neuromusculoskeletal specialists who have undergone extensive training (4 years post graduate) in the assessment and treatment of many common health conditions that are either directly or indirectly related to spinal misalignment.  These conditions include but are not limited to back pain, headaches, sinus problems, indigestion, joint pain and decreased energy.

Since all of the nerves of our body course through the spinal column when spinal misalignments (also commonly referred to as "fixations" or "subluxations") occur they can obstruct and/or irritate the flow of nervous system signals as they travel from the brain to the body or as they travel from the body to the brain.  When these critical signals, which are relied on by the brain to confirm that the body is working properly, are compromised the result is a decreased level of functioning in the organs and tissues that the affected nerve(s) supplies.  It is important to comprehend this will have local and global effects and that often this process occurs sub-clinically meaning that we do not necessarily feel "symptoms" of decreased function despite the fact that it is occurring.  Over time symptoms invariably appear along with the potential for a more chronic health problem.  Understanding the potential effects of spinal misalignment it is clear that Chiropractic is not just about "back pain".

Chiropractors are the only health professionals that undergo years of training in identifying spinal misalignments and correcting them through specific spinal adjustments. Chiropractors also receive extensive education in Lifestyle Medicine (nutrition, exercise, and stress management) enabling them to address all aspects of the causes of spinal misalignments, which often include a combination of physical, emotional and chemical stresses.
