Everyone knows that working with a chiropractor means hearing a lot of cracks and popping sounds. But what exactly is happening during a chiro appointment, and how can an adjustment help?

Chiro treatments involve scientifically-specific techniques to find misalignments in the spine that are creating pressure on nerves causing pain and/or dysfunction in the body. Chiropractic care benefits all aspects of your body’s ability to be healthy. This is accomplished by working with the nervous system–the communication system between your brain and body. Dr. Lamarche works to correct spinal, pelvic and extremity joint misalignments (subluxations). When misaligned, these structures create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments. Additionally, the resulting nerve system stress may affect the body’s ability to function optimally.


Common symptoms of these misalignments can include: back and neck pain, headaches, pain/tingling/numbness in extremities, disc bulges/disc herniations/sciatica, decreased energy, inflammation in the body, and a decreased ability to adapt to environmental stressors.


Chiropractic care helps the body to restore health, promote healing, relieve pain and increase function. People all over the world have reported feeling immense improvements in their health after getting chiro treatments on a consistent basis. Misalignments happen to the best of us — the busyness of life results in many parts of our body being misused or not used at all, which can lead to overcorrections and other health problems. With a chiropractor, you could correct certain problem areas, as well as prevent further problems from starting.
