Chiropractic is a regulated health profession. It is a natural form of health care that mainly focuses on musculoskeletal health. Chiropractors assess, diagnose and treat conditions related to joints and the surrounding muscles. Often times a chiropractor will also communicate and work with other health care providers in order to ensure that you are receiving the best care possible.
Chiropractors use a variety of treatment methods depending on the needs of the patient. These include: joint manipulation, joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretches. Following the detailed history and examination, your chiropractor will develop an individualized treatment plan specific to your personal needs. This treatment plan may include recommendations for other forms of treatments from other health care providers.
In a nutshell, chiropractors help joints move better. When your joints (spinal or extremities) are moving well, your muscles relax and you experience better mobility and feel less pain.

Baby and Children Chiropractic
At Cornerstone we treat patients of all ages. Some of our youngest patients are just a few days old and we had certainly had the privilege of treating patients well into their 90’s. We tailor the treatment to the individual needs of the patient. The adjustment for a 25 year old football player is much different than the gentle light touch used on a 2 day old baby.
