What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a health profession that uses hands-on techniques to improve spine and joint alignment to ease pain and improve function. It’s a holistic and conservative form of medical care that focuses on helping your body heal itself.
The FIX Medical Group’s multispecialty team works together to help you achieve your wellness goals. The group’s chiropractors want to get you back to doing what you love, pain-free and stronger than before.
Chiropractic care at FIX Medical Group benefits many health conditions, including:
- Back and neck pain

Regular chiropractic care also improves your overall wellness by enhancing spine and joint alignment, potentially preventing back and joint pain.
What are some chiropractic care techniques?
The FIX Medical Group’s chiropractors use many techniques to help you achieve your goals. These include:
Even minor misalignments in your spine can create problems anywhere in the body. During spinal adjustments, chiropractors use gentle force to realign the spine. This realignment improves communication between your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and your peripheral nervous system (the nerves throughout the rest of your body).
Active release technique (ART®)
ART is a hands-on technique for treating soft-tissue injuries caused by overuse. During therapy, your chiropractor applies deep tension to the area of tenderness while you actively move the body part.
Massage therapy manipulates muscles and connective tissues to reduce tension, improve mobility, and ease pain.

Spinal decompression therapy
For patients with chronic lower back pain, the chiropractors at FIX Medical Group recommend spinal decompression therapy. This non-surgical treatment gently stretches the spine to eliminate spinal nerve compression that causes radiating pain.
At-home exercise program
Chiropractic care at FIX Medical Group can include an at-home exercise program that supports the work you’re doing with your chiropractor.
What happens during a chiropractic care evaluation?
Your first chiropractic care appointment at FIX Medical Group is an hour long. The goal of this visit is to make sure you and your chiropractor get to know each other.
First, your chiropractor asks detailed questions about your concerns and goals. They also complete a physical exam to determine your current state of health.
The information gathered during your initial visit is used to create your personalized chiropractic care plan.
