What does a Chiropractor do?
Chiropractic is a primary healthcare approach that focuses on the connection between the spine and nervous system. The strains we encounter daily can impact spinal movement and affect nervous system function. Chiropractors refer to these as 'subluxations', caused by factors like accidents, sports injuries, and posture. Our skilled Chiropractor Richard Tucker (Doctor of Chiropractic) is able to identify and address these subluxated areas through precise spinal adjustments. While our main method is hands-on, we also offer gentle techniques for those who prefer or require them.
