At Helping Hands Chiropractic Center, the partnership between chiropractors, exercise therapists and massage therapists forms the core of our treatment philosophy. The goal of integrating chiropractic treatments with rehabilitation is to improve the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments by achieving a positive effect on the entire musculoskeletal system. The essence of chiropractic rehabilitation is a thorough evaluation by our chiropractors on your initial visit. At this time, your chiropractor will consult with you about your treatment options and establish a treatment program for you. We have three chiropractors on staff that offer several styles of chiropractic manipulation to choose from, including light force drop table and Activator Instrument and traditional manual manipulation.
