What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on locating, analyzing and correcting misalignments of the joints, especially those in the spinal column, which disrupts nerve flow and can lead to muscle and organ dysfunction.


How can Chiropractic help you?

About 22 million Americans visit Chiropractors annually.  Most are looking for relief from back and neck pain due to various injuries from sports and accidents. However, chiropractic is so much more!

Short-term and regular chiropractic care have a number of benefits including:

  • headache/migraine relief
  • sore neck relief
  • arthritic joint pain relief
  • increased mobility and range of motion
  • decreased stiffness and muscular spasms
  • decreased tissue inflammation
  • increased performance and energy
  • increased balance and coordination

What should I expect from a Chiropractor?

At Chiropractic Family Healthcare, you can expect a thorough history to be taken of your current and past health status.  A complete physical examination is done to document any orthopedic and neurological abnormalities.  A thermography scan is conducted to indicate changes in temperature due to inflammation in the spine. X-ray is an invaluable tool in assessing the health of the spine.  However, the doctor may or may not schedule x-rays depending on the condition of the spine during evaluation.  A diagnosis will then be determined based on the consultation, examination and x-ray results.  The doctor will then develop a plan of care to correct any misalignments/subluxations to allow proper functioning of the nervous system and thus improved health.



Welcome New, Veteran and Prospective Chiropractic Patients!

Thank you in advance for taking the time to discover chiropractic and its powerful effects on human health.

Chiropractic is a safe, natural and effective treatment to correct any interference of the spine.  Even in the absence of pain, there may still be interference to the nervous system.

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism;  controlled by your nervous system.  Millions of instructions flow to and from your brain, through the spinal cord and out to every organ, tissue, and cell in the body.  Improper motion or positioning of your backbones, called a "subluxation", can interfere with this vital exchange of information by irritating nerves and compromising the function of tissues and organs.

Everyone benefits from chiropractic care whether you're a senior, adult, young adult or child.  We all deserve good health and chiropractic care allows you to experience optimal health.

Yours in Health,

Dr. Darlene Sauls-Bassfield
