Welcome to the Chiropractic Café!

At the Café, our focus is addressing the cause of your condition, and not simply removing secondary conditions, also known as symptoms.  As you probably know, symptoms like pain and discomfort in and of themselves are not actually the problem.  The underlying cause in the body can often go undetected for some time until it reaches a "tipping point."  Once this occurs, the body begins to produce symptoms to tell you there is actually an issue at hand.  It would not make sense to try to remove the symptoms without correcting the cause, as that can actually lead to more problems down the line.

For example - Putting a piece of tape over your check engine light relieves the symptom of seeing the light on, but there is still an underlying issue that needs to be addressed in the engine.  If left unaddressed, this will lead to far greater issues with the car than just seeing the check engine light on.

Instead of simply trying to remedy symptoms, our goal is to address the underlying cause of your condition.  To find the cause, we look at structure, neurology, muscles, and possible scar tissue build up.  By correcting these areas, the body is given a great opportunity to heal.

Whether you are looking to address the cause of your problem, or looking to achieve optimal health through regular Chiropractic visits, we look forward to working with you.

To be clear, Chiropractic is not a substitute, an alternative, or even a natural option for any condition and should not be compared as such.

When you make that comparison you automatically place Chiropractic into an allopathic model in which its effectiveness can only be demonstrated by its ability to suppress or remove symptoms.  This is not the primary purpose of Chiropractic.

Chiropractic stands on its own in its ability to restore neurological function, which can have a profound effect on the development and function of the entire body.
