Chiropractic Care

At Oaktree Chiropractic & Acupuncture, you can find far more than a solution for your pain. When you become our patient, we focus on correcting the root cause of the problem so you can live to your ultimate potential. Our team is passionate about improving your quality of life.

The purpose of chiropractic is not the treatment of any condition. Rather, it is the reduction of stress and interference to the nervous system. As a result, the nervous system can function better, which will enhance your quality of life.

What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a hands-on approach to healthcare that focuses on spinal and nervous system health. Your spine houses your nervous system, which controls all function and healing in your body. It is responsible for transmitting vital information between your brain and your entire body. A misaligned spine will not only cause pain, but can reduce information going between your brain and vital organs.

Correct spinal alignment is crucial to your health. The curves in your spine act as a shock absorber, reducing the forces which act on the spinal cord and nerve tissues. Unfortunately, birth, sports, gravity, poor posture, injury, and disease can all contribute to the misalignment of your spine. Each will affect how your entire body functions. A specific, targeted chiropractic adjustment will help restore nervous system function and spinal alignment, addressing your pain at the source.

Many chiropractors focus simply on relieving your immediate discomfort. Though that’s an important part of what we do, we take it a step further. We want to correct the cause of your problem. Our focus is spinal reconstruction, the practice of moving and restructuring the spine through chiropractic adjustments and specific corrective stretches and exercises.

Using the newest spinal technology, we analyze posture, spinal curves, and often X-rays. This information tells us exactly how and where to adjust your spine, leading to the proper correction.

The majority of patients in our clinic begin by experiencing pain relief from issues such as

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Neck pain

  • Sciatica
  • Tingling in arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • And other musculoskeletal conditions

As chiropractic care continues and their spinal alignment starts to correct itself, patients often notice other signs of an optimally functioning nervous system. Patients often report improvements in various other health conditions or challenges. The nervous system reaches every muscle, tissue and cell in the body. All of these systems are controlled and coordinated best when the brain can communicate with the body!

When the brain can better communicate with the body, this will enhance recuperative power and healing, adaptation to stress, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It’s a safe, painless and effective way to get the body to work at its best. Although we are not specifically treating these conditions, as the nervous system’s communication improves, many of our patients have seen improvement in a vast variety of conditions including:
