Chiropractic Medicine >>>>

Chiropractic medicine is a conservative, non-surgical, health care discipline that emphases the inherent recuperation power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. Paramount to the practice is chiropractic manipulative technique which uses hands to adjust joints of the spine and extremities where restrictions in movement are found, improving mobility and relieving pain.

Chiropractic medicine:

  • addresses the whole body and focuses on the body's ability to heal itself.

  • is concerned with biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, and its effects on the musculoskeletal and neurological systems.

  • is focused on the treatment and prevention of disease and restoration of health.

  • is centered on treating the “cause” of neuromusculoskeletal problems, not just covering the symptoms.


The strength of chiropractic medicine is in the training of the physician and utilization of a wide range of non-surgical, non-drug therapies. Chiropractic manipulative technique can be used to increase the range of motion at specific areas; to reduce pain; to reset the neurologic system (muscle spindles); to reduce muscle spasm and restore a patient's normal activities.

Study after study has confirmed the success of chiropractic techniques for many types of spine related conditions. In recent years, numerous independent research and government agencies have conducted studies which focus on the efficacy, appropriateness, cost-effectiveness and safety of chiropractic treatment.

At ChiroMedica, we're committed to providing the best care for our patients. If doctor and patient determine that chiropractic manipulation is part of the treatment plan, Dr. Huffman will help facilitate care.
