What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a discipline of health care that is focused on healing the body without the use of pharmaceutical drugs and surgery. The primary goal of chiropractic is to restore and optimize human health. Though chiropractic treatments focus primarily on the spinal region, chiropractors treat far more than spinal and neck subluxations (misaligned vertebra).

Who can receive chiropractic care?

Nearly all individuals are candidates to receive chiropractic treatments. Dr. Allison Zak Chiropractic provides care for patients of all ages, including infants and senior citizens. Research has shown that though children generally have resilient tissues, they too can experience back and neck pain. On the other hand, senior citizens often suffer from poor spinal function and over-medication, which can cause unpleasant side effects. In both of these cases, and many more, Chiropractic care is the best remedy to help restore overall health at any age. For children, chiropractic care can return their body to normal function and alleviate pain from injuries. For the elderly, chiropractic care can help restore spinal function and even improve arthritic symptoms, as well as other chronic ailments associated with aging.

What parts of the body can be adjusted?

Nearly every joint in the body can be adjusted with a chiropractic treatment(s), including the spine, neck, hands, wrists, elbows, ribs, hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, and even the jaw. At Dr. Allison Zak Chiropractic, we utilize gentle, precise adjustive techniques that restore joint function and improve joint health. Motion is the only way the body can provide nutrients to joint cartilage and flush out harmful waste; therefore, chiropractic adjustments that allow for greater motion are an effective way to develop healthier joints.


"I have had low back pain for years. I have been to several different chiropractors in the past and Dr. Zak really listened to me. She gave me exercises, stretches, and nutritional advice to do outside of her office to prevent this from happening in the future and keep me from coming back to her every week. I would recommend Dr. Zak to anyone suffering with back pain."
