Chiropractors understand that one of the main causes of pain and disease is the misalignment and abnormal motion of the vertebrae in the spinal column called a subluxation. Chiropractic works by removing these subluxations in the spine, thereby relieving pressure and irritation on the nerves, restoring joint mobility, and returning the body back to a state of normal function.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments for back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, sports injuries and many other types of musculoskeletal problems. It has even been shown to be effective in reducing high blood pressure, decreasing the frequency of childhood ear infections, and improving the symptoms of asthma. More and more scientific research is demonstrating the tremendous detrimental impact that subluxation have on the tissue of the body. In order to be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex through chiropractic care.

The chiropractic adjustment is a quick thrust applied to a vertebra for the purpose of correcting its position, movement or both. Adjustments are often accompanied by an audible release of gas that sounds like a 'crack.' The sound sometimes shocks people a little bit the first couple times they get adjusted, but the sensation is usually relieving. Occasionally, minor discomfort is experienced, especially if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during the chiropractic procedure. There are times when the audible 'cracking' does not occur. This is often due to either significant muscle tightness or that the patient may be having a hard time relaxing during their adjustments.

In this section, you will find articles on chiropractic's history, how wellness and medical care differ, and what exactly is an "adjustment" is and how it's used in an chiropractor's office.

  • Wellness vs. Medical Care

    What's the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care?

    Lee Clouthier
  • "It has been 22 years now. I hurt my back at work. The pain was unbearable. I had never experienced anything like it before. A friend of mine asked his Chiropractor if he knew anyone in my area that I could see. He only gave one name. Dr. Blackman. Before I knew it, Dr. Blackman called me on the phone, on a Sunday night no less! He told me to come in the next day and he would examine me. But it was the following sentence that meant the most. “If I can’t help you, I will at least point you in the right direction” What more could I ask! So started a long journey. 5 days a week, then 4, then 3, then 2, then once a week. Now, I go once every 3 weeks for general maintenance. Thanks Dr. Blackman to You and your great staff for all your great care. The one thing about back pain is that recovery is slow. You have to be patient and trusting. Remember, taking pain pills are not a long term solution! I highly recommend Dr. Blackman and his staff!!"
