Chiropractic is a safe, natural way to manage and treat pain during pregnancy. Research shows that chiropractic adjustments can substantially reduce pain in the low-back, pelvis, and hips; ease sciatica; relieve stress; and reduce the frequency of headaches.

Neck Pain: The Most Common Auto Injury

Neck pain is the most common symptom reported after an auto collision, and it's not difficult to understand why.

During a crash, your body moves with the seat while your head lags behind, due to inertia. It is this difference in motion that results in injury.
