The body withstands multiple stress patterns that may carry tension throughout without any symptoms. When ignored, this tension causes the body to express symptoms such as pain. Once the source of your pain is identified, we can help eliminate it using the most up to date chiropractic techniques and work together to make sure the pain stays away.

What kind of training does a Doctor of Chiropractic have?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years (usually 3-3 ½ years, year-round) of education at a chiropractic college. This schooling is most often preceded by a required undergraduate degree.
4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience is required to become a chiropractor. The chiropractic curriculum includes orthopedics, neurology, human anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, clinical diagnosis, diagnostic imaging, exercise, nutrition, rehabilitation, and more. Approximately 1,000 hours are spent in supervised clinical training/rotation.
A series of 4 national board exams must be passed before a chiropractor can enter into practice. Each state has individualized requirements for licensure. Most states issue examinations that cover the laws of their state. Some states require higher scores from the board exams than others, and some require extra hours of education in additional specialties and skills.
