“As a chiropractor, when I treat a patient, I am focused on helping to ensure that the brain (which controls the body) is provided with open pathways of communication down the spine and throughout the nervous system.”
Chiropractic care is more than just making the pain go away.
Chiropractic Care is about learning, understanding and taking care of your body to improve your quality of life.
As a chiropractic office, we understand that although different patients may be diagnosed with the same condition, they can respond very differently to similar treatments. For this reason, we tailor a specific plan of action to meet your individual needs, goals & unique medical and physical conditions. We aim to motivate our patients to take a more active and responsible role in restoring and maintaining their own health as well as the health of people around them. This is achieved through the education of Chiropractic care and other natural solutions to common health problems.
I hope that you will find this site helpful in learning more about our gentle approach to chiropractic care as well as the ways it can improve the quality of your life.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. When there is interference in the spine, there is resulting interference in the organs, muscles and tissues of your body. This means interference in your ability to heal. Chiropractic adjustments remove these interferences, allowing your body to heal at its best.
Chiropractic medicine is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or medicines. Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as chiropractors, are primary health care providers licensed in all 50 states, and are recognized by governmental health care programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Workers’ Compensation programs and more. Every year, more than 30 million Americans see chiropractors as part of the regular health care programs and with over 84,000 licensed chiropractors nationwide and more than 10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school, it is the fastest growing health care profession.
Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains. However, the scope of conditions that chiropractors manage or provide care for is not limited to the common pains and problems listed above. The healing work that chiropractors do also can help alleviate symptoms of allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, and other disorders.
Many people think that chiropractic care is aggressive & painful, but with Dr. Jackie that is not the case. She offers a gentle approach. Give it a Try!
