A chiropractic adjustment has a direct link into modulating the immune system. When adjustments are given in the C1-C2 complex, sensory information is delivered to the medulla, directly activating the autonomic nervous system; this stimulates and mobilizes macrophages that are your innate first responders, ready to fight off unwanted antigens and pathogens...i.e. the bad guys. Regular adjustments help your immune system keep up with that constant barrage of inflammation in your body.Read More
Chiropractic adjustments aren’t just for your spine—chiropractors are also trained to adjust your knees, ankles, hips, wrists, shoulders, even your fingers to keep them flexible. These extremity joints, just like the joints in the spine, can also become fixated over time. Chiropractic adjustments keep the joints mobile, which helps keep them moist; dried-out joints are stuck joints, and they are more susceptible to degeneration and trauma.Read More
One major benefit of getting regular chiropractic care is chilling out! Adjustments stimulate the deep centers of the brain that control autonomic function and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), which controls heart rate, breathing, digestion, and more. In modern life, we’re always go go go, so all these things are constantly out of balance. A visit to your friendly chiropractor will get you back on track.Read More

Prescription medications often make digestive issues worse, leading to overly depleted stomach acid and malabsorption of nutrients in the gut. Chiropractic is a more holistic and long-term approach to healing digestive challenges because it helps get to the root cause of the problem, which often is a blockage of nerve communication between the spine and the stomach. It was Hippocrates, “the father of medicine,” who said that to find the cause of disease, we must first look to the spine.Read More
Stress, both physical and mental, is the single most common cause of tension headaches. When we’re overworked, overtired, have a big deadline, or we’re late to soccer practice, that old fight or flight reaction kicks in. We experience decreased blood flow to the brain and muscles, which instantly increases tension in the body and can trigger a headache. Forward head posture, aka “tech neck,” which is another major culprit in tension headaches. In some cases, chiropractic adjustments may provide immediate relief for an existing tension headache, and often, regular chiropractic care can fully halt chronic tension headaches.Read More
It’s not uncommon for chiropractors to see 3-5 inches of forward head translation in our patients; that equates to 30 to 50 extra pounds of pressure on the spine. Regular chiropractic adjustments are the absolute best solution to prevent and reverse tech neck by restoring normal motion and nerve communication to bring a patient’s head back atop the shoulders where it belongs.Read More
Ever get “pin and needles?” That tingling feeling is neuropathy, and it’s usually caused by compressive forces on the nerve roots and peripheral nerves that exit from the spinal cord and vertebrae. This can be the result of a serious accident or injury, but most often neuropathy is caused by continued poor posture. Regular chiropractic adjustments are the best way to prevent (and stop!) neuropathy by correcting posture and restoring movement.Read More
Back pain, especially low back pain, is the #2 reason for doctor visits in the U.S.—and most often, chronic back pain stems from some degree of degeneration in the spine.

Chiropractic adjustments can greatly improve sleep by sending impulses into the deep centers of the brain where the circadian rhythms for sleep and wakefulness are regulated. Nighty-night!Read More
