Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a health care approach that focuses on the relationship between the body's structure-mainly the spine-and its functioning. Dr. Michael Gallagher uses a variety of treatment approaches, primarily he performs adjustments to the spine and other parts of the body with the goal of correcting alignment problems and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Patients seek Chiropractic care primarily for pain conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Chiropractic care is based on these key concepts

The body has a powerful self-healing ability. The body's structure (primarily that of the spine) and its function are closely related, and this relationship affects your overall health.

Therapy aims to normalize this relationship between structure and function and assist the body as it heals.
