What chiropractic means to us

Cracking Bones isn’t part of all treatments.

Often getting cracked isn’t the best approach to resolving an issue or health problem. We rely heavily on A.R.T (Active Release Technique) which is a myofacial or muscle based therapy that alleviates many injuries and pains without the crack.

Chiropractic/ART Therapy is for all ages, young and old.

Chiropractic can be for everyone from young children, teenagers, and the elderly can all benefit from chiropractic care to keep them functioning well and to maintain their health. Your chiropractor has been highly trained to adjust treatment technique to suit each member of your family at every age group, as well as those with specific conditions or injuries. Many seniors benefit from chiropractic care as it can help with pain relief, range of motion, balance and co-ordination and decrease joint degeneration.

Pain is often the last symptom of dysfunction.

Most people visit a chiropractor in response to pain or injury but this is often after an underlying problem over a period of time. Muscle, ligament and joint injuries often occur as a result of long-term biomechanical dysfunction, sometimes from past injuries, making the area more susceptible to future injury.

Chiropractic is not only for back pain but rather full body care including treatment for muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Chiropractors can treat both hard and soft structures within the whole body including joints, nerves, muscles and ligaments from all over including knees, elbows, shoulders and feet. Over-used muscles and other soft tissues can lead to tears, trauma or hypoxia which can benefit from regular chiropractic treatment.

Athletes use chiropractic for improved performance and injury prevention not only for acute care.

Athletes getting routine chiropractic treatments may notice improved athletic performance, improved range of motion, better flexibility, increased blood flow, and may suffer from fewer injuries. Chiropractic care can help improve muscle balance, agility, strength, endurance, agility and reduce the risk of injury among other things.



Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine mostly concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine.

Active Release
Techniques (A.R.T)

A.R.T is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system, movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
