Providers for Chiropractic

Chiropractors specialize in health care through manipulation of the spine. Many women enjoy the care of a chiropractor during pregnancy to maintain health and reduce back and body aches and pains. Chiropractors also can care for infants after birth. Newborns may have difficulties after birth related to neck and spine trauma, especially after a hard birth or the use of forceps or vacuum extractors.

Chiropractic care for children offers a solid foundation for wellness.
