COMING SOON

 At Family Chiropractic Clinic we believe that chiropractic medicine focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves—and the patient’s health. Our chiropractic team believes that health can be improved and preserved by making adjustments to these structures, particularly to the spinal column. 

 Our theory of Chiropractic is based on the absolute FACT that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. We belive that Chiropractic is the healthcare profession which understands that the body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system of networks is functioning at it's peak, the human body is performing to it's fullest potential!

What is Chiropractic

 Chiropractic is based on the close relationship between the spine and  nervous system.  The nervous system controls all other systems in the  body.  A requisite for health is a normal functioning spine and nervous  system.  Conditions occur in the spine in which the vertebrae become subluxated  (misaligned or fixated), discs herniate, or nerve openings become  narrowed.  These produce interference to or irritation of nerves.  Our team of Chiropractors seek to restore function of the spine and nervous system and a return your body to health !

Adjustments

 The adjustment is a safe, natural, noninvasive procedure used by Dr. Hammer to restore and improve health. Learning the art of  adjusting is a skill that requires years of study and practice. Chiropractic doctors are the only health care professionals trained to deliver a chiropractic adjustment. Spinal adjustments by any other  individual or health care professional have been shown to   be dangerous and less effective.

 Massage Therapy and Chiropractic are both holistic in nature and based in the belief that the body, when given the chance, will heal itself.  Our expert Massage Therapists recommend massage therapy for treatment of stress reduction, headaches, chronic muscle tension and fatigue, or as part of the recovery process for sports injuries, automobile and work injuries.
Massage is helpful before or after chiropractic adjustments. Before an adjustment, massage relieves muscle tension and warms the soft tissues, making the joints more pliable and easily adjusted. Following an adjustment, massage can be used to further relax the patient, allowing the chiropractic adjustment to be more effective.

What is Massage Therapy

 Massage or massage therapy are systems of structured palpation or movement of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, lymph  nodes) of the body. Massage is deeply relaxing and nurturing and is helpful not only for ailments of the body, but for relaxation as well.
