Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is the process of locating areas of the spine that are misaligned or not moving properly, then correcting those areas using precisely targeted chiropractic adjustments. When spinal joints are positioned as they should be, interference in the nervous system is alleviated, allowing normal communication between the brain and body to resume. When your brain-body connection is functioning optimally, your body can heal itself and achieve better overall health.

At Coliseum Chiropractic, we use a thorough range of motion and orthopedic tests, along with digital X-rays, to locate the areas of misalignment. Dr. Porter takes the time to find out what your goals are, and then designs a care plan individually tailored to your needs.

Our adjusting techniques include Diversified, Drop Table and Flexion Distraction, as well as Activator Methods® for certain situations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a chiropractor damage a spine?

Although there can be risks with any kind of health care, chiropractic is one of the safest and most effective types of care available. It is drug-free and completely non-invasive.

Can a chiropractor straighten a spine?

There are many factors to consider, including the cause of the spinal curvature and how long it has been left untreated. Each patient is different, but in many cases we may be able to help correct the musculature surrounding the affected area to prevent the curvature from worsening. By taking the pressure off the nerves, this can often relieve pain.

Do chiropractors stretch you out?

Chiropractors do not stretch you. They use targeted adjustments to restore alignment and movement to joints of the spine that are not working correctly. When your spine works as it should, you may stand straighter and feel taller—but we didn’t stretch you.
