Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic care is designed to restore normal movement to the spine, and relieve interference on the nervous system. By restoring normal movement to the spine and removing interference on the nervous system the body is able to adequately adapt to its outside environment and function optimally. Chiropractic care is traditionally known to involve manual adjustments to the spine in order to restore normal movement, however, there are a number of non-manual, and light force techniques that can also be used. Dr. Renee uses several different techniques, to help restore range of motion and normal biomechanics to the spine. Whether looking for a manual adjustment, or something a little gentler Dr. Renee can determine exactly your needs.
