Chiropractic Care

Most people think of chiropractors as bone or spine doctors, but in reality, we are nervous system doctors. When your spine isn’t aligned or moving correctly, the result can be subluxations, which cause interference in your nervous system. When there is interference in your nervous system, your brain and body can’t communicate the way they should, and that may lead to symptoms like pain or dysfunction.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Adjusting patient on tableLet’s face it-we all lead very busy lives these days. Often, we find ourselves on autopilot, going through the motions and forgetting to take care of ourselves. Physical, mental, and emotional stress takes its toll on our bodies every day, leading to subluxations and causing dysfunction in our nervous system. Nervous system dysfunction can lead to problems-like pain, headaches, fatigue, sleeping poorly, and so much more.

Chiropractors are highly trained to locate and remove these subluxations through precisely targeted chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments restore nervous system function, so that the messages your brain and nerves send to your body are delivered properly, and your body can work as it was designed to. It’s important to note that chiropractic does not treat specific conditions. Rather, by helping restore nervous system function, individual symptoms and conditions usually improve.

At First Step Family Chiropractic, we want to help you become the best version of yourself and keep your body working properly! We can help calm the nervous system by creating better balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems so that your body can function exactly how it was meant to.

We can’t wait to help you reach your goals!

Headaches and neck pain

Focused adjustments may help reduce how often you experience headaches, or even eliminate them altogether. We’ll dive deep to get to the root of your issue, and start by identifying what type of headache you’re dealing with. We’ve helped many people just like you find relief!

Low back pain

Whether you’re dealing with acute or chronic low back pain caused by sciatic nerve pain, pelvic issues, hip problems, disc herniations, or something else, gentle adjustments can help realign your spine to bring relief.


If you suffer from arthritis, it can be difficult to move how you’d like to. This lack of movement can sometimes make the pain and stiffness worse. Chiropractic helps to put motion back into your joints, slowing the degenerative progression of the disease.

Your nervous system influences other parts and systems of your body. If you’re feeling like something is out of sorts in regards to your immune system, endocrine system, or digestive system, we’d love to speak with you about how we can help.
