The musculoskeletal system consists of bones, cartilage, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Primary functions of the musculoskeletal system include support of the body, provision of motion, and protection of vital organs. Building a strong musculoskeletal system requires movement.

It's normal for our bodies to need healing hands and coaching to experience the best physical health life can offer. Recent trends in medicine focus on prevention as a key to health and wellness. A healthy musculoskeletal system is a key component to good health.

Chiropractors are specially trained healthcare professionals that focus on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular dysfunction. Educated in anatomy and physiology, we are experts in understanding how movement, posture, and function affect the wellness of our patients. Our goal is to promote healthy, pain-free activities that maximize productivity and enjoyment in both work and recreation. We promote healing by reducing pain and inflammation, increasing range of motion and strength, and improving posture, body awareness, and body mechanics.

Our musculoskeletal system is a complex, interactive system. Through extensive education and clinical expertise, physical therapists can help identify the cause of dysfunction through our hands-on evaluations. It is not uncommon for the root cause of the symptoms to originate from elsewhere in the body.

We are honored to be your healthcare provider.
