Chiropractic Care

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care addresses and supports neuromusculoskeletal health.  That means that we assess, diagnose, and treat issues related to the nervous system, muscles, and bones and joints.  Doctors of Chiropractic are primary care physicians who have the same years of training as a medical doctor but with a focus on manual therapy and conservative management rather than acute disease and pharmacology.

At AltaVie, the care our chiropractors provide is a blend of treatment techniques specific to the patient and problem being addressed.  We take time to ask questions and figure out exactly what is going on so that we can develop a customized treatment plan that is right for you.  We take a whole-person approach, applying our head, heart, and hands to support your physical, chemical, and emotional health.
