Dr. Cathy adjusting a young patientMany people seek out chiropractic care because they have pain or another symptom of a health problem. Others wish to improve their health. If you’re experiencing discomfort, our first goal is to relieve it. Then, we’ll talk about how we can enhance the function of your nervous system, which in turn can boost your overall health and well-being.

Precise Techniques to Suit Your Needs

We use techniques that are gentle and effective for all ages. Dr. Cathy has Thompson tables that use a drop piece, making the adjustment specific and comfortable for the patient. She also uses the Activator®, which is an instrument that is ideal for nearly anyone.

Pregnant moms will be comfortable on specialized cushions that allow them to lie facedown. Dr. Cathy is also trained in Webster Technique and Diversified Technique.

Wellness Chiropractic Care – For All Ages

People choose chiropractic care for a wide variety of health and wellness reasons. Chiropractic is a specialized approach designed to release tension from the spinal nerves and help the entire spine and nervous system function optimally. If pain or symptoms are what brought you in, we will begin to address those issues while we investigate the underlying causes.

Our main focus in this office is to understand how day-to-day stresses have begun to change your spine and your health. Everyone manages a different amount of stress in their lives. If accidents, injuries, chronic emotional tension or even diets or medications are part of your life history, then there is a chance that these stresses have begun to affect your entire nervous system. The nerves that connect the brain to the body travel through the spinal column. The spine itself is a common place for stress to affect the muscles and the joints. Over time this can lead to many back and neck related problems. However, our greatest concern is when those stresses settle deeper within the nerves themselves. When this occurs, your health can be affected as well as your spine.

Knowing You’re in Good Hands

Before giving you an adjustment, you’ll have a thorough examination and go through the results with Dr. Cathy so that you know exactly what to expect. We’ll walk you through the adjustment before proceeding. Less than 10% of people feel sore after the adjustment, which is completely normal. Most people rise from the adjusting table and say, “Is that all there is to it?” and are surprised they ever felt concerned.
