If there is a misalignment in your spine, there is a possibility that the nerves become compressed or “pinched”. As a result, the extra pressure on the nerve may affect its function in your body. We call this a subluxation.
When you have subluxations in your spine, then your body can not perform at its optimum. You may experience back pain or headaches, but there may be other symptoms that you have which you may not realize are caused by misalignment of your spine.
The science of chiropractic is based on correcting these subluxations which restores balance in your body. Restoring this balance in your nervous system enables your innate to heal and function at its optimal best which allows you to be more active and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
We provide spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Dr. Karen has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
