What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a clinical science of evaluating the Vertebral Subluxation Complex in patients.

Chiropractic is an art of reducing, correcting, and preventing subluxation.

Chiropractic is a philosophy of life and health based on the force within all of us that fosters the spark of life and allows us to be 
all that we can be.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle force introduced to the spine in a very specific manner to remove the most recent layer of injury to your nervous system, allowing the brain to communicate with the body without interference.

Do adjustments feel good?

Dr. Tara practices very low-force techniques that allow patients to remain very relaxed during their entire adjustment. Sometimes adjustments feel good and other times you will barely even notice them; However, with every adjustment, your body is getting healthier.

Will I hear a noise?

Because of Dr. Tara's low-force technique, it is unlikely patients will hear a noise during the adjustment, but occasionally there is. Remember, the noise is simply a gas exchange occurring in the joint.

How often do I have to go?

The frequency and duration of chiropractic care varies from person to person. For the first three months you will need to go more often to retrain your nervous system.

Can I adjust myself?

No! Chiropractors go to college for 7-9 years to learn the art of chiropractic. We learn where to adjust, how to adjust, when to adjust and when to leave the body alone.  By manipulating yourself, you run the risk of serious injury.

Do adjustments treat injuries?

Chiropractic doesn’t treat injuries.  Chiropractic keeps your body operating at the maximum level, increasing its ability to heal faster and function better which, in turn, has a positive effect on injuries.

Can I have an adjustment if I’ve had a spinal disease or spinal surgery?

Yes, you can! The areas above and below the fusion or surgery are now working extra hard and need more attention to prevent further damage in your spine.
