Expertise. Communication. Results.Learn More About Performance Chiropractic >>
At Performance Chiropractic, each patient is evaluated and treated on an individual basis. We are proud of our clinic's reputation to recognize each patient's unique clinical needs, financial and time limitations, and personal health, lifestyle and performance goals. We work closely with each individual to determine the course of care that best suits his or her needs for relief, recovery and ongoing prevention and wellness.
To that end, we do not follow a practice model that involves long-term prepaid treatment plans, free introductory examinations, mandatory x-rays, or open treatment areas lacking privacy. It is our practice policy to offer treatment to our patients on the same day as the initial examination, unless exam findings dictate that further diagnostic procedures or another intervention would be more appropriate.TAG's: Contact Us | Directions

Benefits for Pets & AnimalsLearn More About This Treatment >>
Animal Chiropractic is a field of animal health care that focuses on the preservation and health of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. Why? Nerves control everything that happens in your animals. Anything adversely affecting the nervous system will have detrimental effects that will resonate throughout the entire body. The command centers of the nervous system are the brain and spinal cord which are protected by the spine. The spine is a complex framework of bones (vertebra), ligaments, muscles and nerves. If the movement and biomechanics of the vertebra become dysfunctional, they can interfere with the performance of the nerves that are branching off of the spinal cord and going to the all of the muscles and organs. As this occurs, your animal can lose normal mobility; resulting in stiffness, tension, pain and even organ dysfunction. Additionally, when normal movement is affected, and left unattended, it will ultimately impact your animal’s entire wellbeing and quality of life.
