At West End Chiropractic and Wellness we utilize the most advanced chiropractic techniques
in treating our patients. The most common procedure performed by Doctors of Chiropractic is
called "Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy" but is more commonly known as a "Chiropractic
Adjustment" or "Spinal Manipulation".

The purpose of this procedure is to increase mobility and remove restrictions called
subluxations in the joints of the body by applying a controlled and measured force to the joints.
Joints of the body become restricted as a result of a single traumatic injury such as whiplash
injury or a fall. Subluxations can also result from repetitive activities such as improper lifting and
poor posture, over an extended period of time. "Chiropractic Adjustments" or "Spinal
Manipulation", as they are commonly known, remove the subluxation from the joint thereby
restoring normal mobility and joint position and eliminating the associated pain and discomfort.

Subluxations do not always present as pain or musculoskeltal problems and therefore can have
an effect on other functions of the body. Thus, it is important to have your spine checked as
routine health maintenance.

At West End Chiropractic and Wellness we offer different types of Chiropractic Care plans to fit
your needs.

Injury Care

Our doctors will create a treatment plan to eliminate the symptoms that are occurring. This
phase of chiropractic care is considered the Relief Care Phase.

healthy, the truth is sometimes pain alone is not the indicator that something is wrong. Many

health conditions have no symptoms whatsoever but can be very serious conditions, such as,
heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.

Spinal problems are one of the few conditions that will generally be accompanied with pain as a
first symptom, and can be reduced or eliminated through chiropractic treatments.

Corrective Care

After receiving Relief Care and eliminating or reducing your symptoms, some may believe there
is no need for further treatments, actually the Corrective Care phase is a very important step
needed to restore, heal, and prevent symptoms from recurring. Your condition will determine the
amount of treatments needed to complete the healing process. To help improve and accelerate
the healing process you can perform certain exercises at the clinic, or in the comfort of your own

This phase could take a few months or more depending on the seriousness of your condition.
Soreness or flare-ups may occur and are completely normal.

Wellness Care

Now that you are healed and feel better than ever, routine chiropractic care will help to ensure
that this feeling will never fade away. A program including regular adjustments, exercise, and a
healthy diet will help ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.

The Wellness Care phase will give you the benefit of living life to the fullest.
