Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free method of adjusting the spine for the correction of issues that cause discomfort.
Misalignments or malfunctions of the vertebrae can affect the functioning of the nervous system, negatively affecting the patient's health and performance. These misalignments are called “subluxations” and are treated with spinal adjustments administered by Doctors of Chiropractic (DC).

Your chiropractor, Dr. Michael Shore, will find the subluxations and correct them with a series of chiropractic adjustments especially designed to correct your specific vertebral problems. Chiropractors are the only professionals who undergo years of training to be the experts at correcting subluxations.

Patients appreciate the fact that chiropractic is the completely natural, effective treatment for a wide range of issues.
