Once the pain is gone and the function is restored our job is to

Most of us will visit a dentist to maintain our teeth, have check-ups with our medical doctors to monitor our health, and schedule routine maintenance for our vehicles to help them run smoothly. Our muscles, nerves and joints require the same to STAY healthy. We are your resource to reduce the consequences of daily wear and tear and keep your body moving properly.
Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care.

when compared with their non-chiropractic counterparts.
Feel Great and Have a Safe
Alternative to Fight Pain
The CDC recently released updated guidelines that promotes the use of non-pharmacologic alternatives such as chiropractic for the treatment of chronic pain. For those with injuries or frequent pain chiropractic combats the need and subsequent risk of chronic NSAID use or prescription opioids.
A 2018 study found the likelihood of filling an opioid prescription was 55% lower for chiropractic patients. Of the chiropractic patients who did fill an opioid prescription, their average annual charges for those medications were 74% lower than Non-Recipients who filled an opioid prescription.
We could cite studies here
but it's pretty common knowledge at this point. . .
