What does a Chiropractor Do?

Chiropractors use spinal adjustments along with other alternative treatments to bring the musculoskeletal structure of the body into proper alignment.

What Are Common Chiropractic Techniques?

As a Palmer graduate, Dr. Meylor is well versed in a variety of techniques such as Thompson, Gonstead and Diversified. Our favorite is a gentle Prone Technique paired with Zone Technique of analysis and healing.

How Do Chiropractors Relieve Pain From Injuries or Accidents?

Chiropractors use an adjustment as a non-invasive, safe, and effective way to treat the cause of pain, not just mask the symptoms. This decreases the need for surgery and potentially addictive painkillers.

Can I Get Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?

Absolutely! Getting adjusted during pregnancy can help reduce labor time, help ease the body back into position after birth, as well as help treat pain during the pregnancy.

Why Do Adjustments Sometimes Make a Popping Sound?

The popping noise that comes from an adjustment is just the release of gasses from joint space being opened up.

Is Chiropractic Treatment Appropriate for Children?

Yes! Chiropractic is perfectly safe for all ages! Yes, even newborns. Adjustments for children can help improve sleep, mood, and recovery time for illnesses and injuries.
