It has been documented that chiropractic adjustments restore motion to a joint but bones are not moved for this to happen. Motion nourishes the joint, reduces local muscle spasm, and stimulates the body’s repair systems. Numerous studies have shown the safety, efficacy, and patient satisfaction associated with chiropractic treatments. Low back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, infant colic, and menstrual pain have all been successfully treated in control studies supporting the effectiveness of chiropractic manipulative therapies.
Dr. Mennerick uses gentle, hands-on adjustments as part of an integrated treatment plan that often uses nutrition, exercises, stretches, balance, endurance, and coordination along with adjustments.
