Chiropractic in Placentia - is it right for me?
Placentia Chiropractors specialize in the interactions between our nerves, muscles and skeleton and their effects on our general health. They diagnose problems and use manual therapy, including joint adjustment and manipulation, to prevent and treat them.

Many people who seek Placentia chiropractic care do so for help with back pain, especially lower back pain, neck pain and headache. Spinal adjustment in Placentia or chiropractic adjustment is the most common method of treatment--it refers to the manual adjustment by the chiropractor of the three-joint complex at the base of your spine with sufficient force to create a sensation of 'release', increasing the joint's range and reducing pain.

A treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments. Many chiropractors in Placentia also incorporate nutritional counseling, exercise or rehabilitation into the treatment plan.
