Chiropractic Care

As a chiropractor, Dr. Rachel is an expert in the detection and correction of subluxations. These misalignments in the vertebrae can cause interference in your nervous system. How do they affect your health? Simply put, your nervous system is the master controller of every function in your body, down to the glands, organs, muscles and tissues. When your nervous system can communicate with the rest of your body, you can enjoy your full function. When subluxations are present, however, you might experience problems such as headaches, sciatica, allergies, asthma and more.
