It is estimated that approximately 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually and approxmately one third visit strictly for back pain.
We also spend literally billions of dollars each year a year on back pain and it is one of the most common reasons for missed work., Sadly it is also the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
At Rivertown Chiropractic we start by asking you to complete a medical history in our portal followed by physical examination to determine the appropriate treatment for your back pain.
The treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments in which the doctor manipulates the joints, using a controlled, sudden force to improve range and quality of motion. Many chiropractors also incorporate nutritional counseling and rehabilitation into the treatment plan. The goals of chiropractic care include the restoration of function and prevention of injury in addition to back pain relief.
We also care as much about preventative care and have included a few that may help keep you healthier in the future.

- Work on maintaining better posture
- Get plenty of exercise
We are always happy to answer any wuestions you may have so feel free to call or stop by any time.
