Improve your mobility

Chiropractic is the science of adjusting(manipulating) spinal and extremity joints to restore and improve joint function. Scientific evidence proves that spinal manipulation improves nerve system function, decreases pain, and serves as a preventive treatment for overall health and wellness. 

The goal of chiropractic treatment is to correct the subluxation (misaligned vertebrae), and as a result increases range of motion; reduces nerve irritability,  pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms; and improves mobility. 

If you are experiencing pain or symptoms, Dr Price-McCarthy wants to help! Chiropractic care can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle as well as provide relief from chronic and acute conditions exclusively or in conjunction with other medical disciplines. 

Often, people do not seek help for pain until it worsens. It is important to seek help at the onset of symptoms, to prevent progression, curtail duration, and optimize outcomes.

Adjusting techniques vary greatly. Dr. Price-McCarthy will work with you to find an adjusting technique that is effective and one that you are comfortable with. Dr. Price-McCarthy can perform adjustments manually or with the use of adjusting instruments. We also offer physiotherapeutic modalities including Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Intersegmental Traction, Percussive Therapy and Low Level Laser Therapy.


Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Muscle Stimulation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation utilizes electrical current to help strengthen muscles, decrease pain and inflammation, improve blood circulation, and promote healing. 


Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction helps to increase your mobility.  It improves your balance and strength by stretching your back ligaments and muscles, thus reestablishing your spine’s range of motion. 


Low Level Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) also referred to as Cold Laser Therapy decreases pain, inflammation, and promotes tissue healing at the cellular level.


Percussive Therapy

Percussive Therapy (also called percussion) massage uses rapid and repetitive pressure combined with vibration therapy. The massage head moves quickly and forcefully, applying pressure directly to your soft tissue, while the vibrations engage the outer layer of skin. The benefits include releasing myofascial restrictions, improving mobility and flexibility, as well as increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage.

Pre/Postnatal Chiropractic

We offer a conservative approach to treating pregnant women. Our pre/postnatal care is gentle and safe. We focus on alleviating the stress and strains of pregnancy while improving comfort for both the mother and baby. We utilize tables that adjust for a pregnant woman’s body. We understand the physical changes that come with pregnancy and offer safe treatment for relief, naturally. Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include maintaining a healthier pregnancy, reducing the time of labor and delivery, and relieving neck, back, pelvic, and/or hip pain. Dr Price-McCarthy can also perform the Webster Technique for breech presentation. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported in the July/August 2002 issue an 82% success rate of babies turning vertex when doctors of chiropractic used the Webster Technique.

Further, the results from the study suggest it may be beneficial to perform the Webster Technique, as soon as the 8th month of pregnancy, when a woman has a breech presentation.

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout pregnancy.


Pediatric Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is not just for adults. You may not realize it yet but sending your kids to a chiropractor can significantly help them manage stress and grow healthier. Pediatric chiropractic care can improve sleeping habits, address behavioral issues, and boost the immune system of kids, so they can better fight off and prevent sickness. Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.

Frequently Asked Questions
Asked Questions
The brain stem and spinal cord are the primary pathways for nerve impulses to and from the brain. Messages back and forth through these spinal nerves control health and function of nearly every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body.
Nerve tissue is so important that it is the only tissue protected by bone. The skull protects the brain and the 24 moving bones of the spinal column protects the spinal cord.
A subluxation occurs when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position or get ‘stuck’ and create pressure on, or irritate, spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals transmitted over the nervous system that helps keep your brain in touch with your body.
When vertebral bones are misaligned a lot of additional problems can result:
  1. Muscles supporting the spine can become too tight and go into spasm or can weaken.
  2. A rise in temperature from an increase in blood and lymph supplies results in swelling and inflammation. Discs can bulge, herniate, tear or degenerate. Ligaments and other connective tissue can also become inflamed and may suffer permanent damage.
  3. Bone spurs and other abnormal bony growths attempt to fuse malfunctioning spinal joints (arthritic degeneration). This spinal decay, scar tissue and long-term nerve dysfunction can cause other systems of the body to malfunction.

Your nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body. If there is interference with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.

There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes include accidents, slips and falls, improper lifting, repetitive motions, poor posture and poor sleeping habits. Stress, fear, anger are examples of emotional causes of subluxations. Alcohol, drugs (recreational or prescribed), pollution and poor diet can be chemical causes of subluxations.

You can have subluxations and not even know it. Like tooth decay or cancer, subluxations can be present before any warning signs (pain, symptoms) appear. Subluxations can be detected by performing a thorough examination. It is the responsibility of the Doctor of Chiropractic to locate subluxations and reduce or correct them. This is done through a series of chiropractic adjustments specifically designed to correct the vertebral subluxations in your spine. Chiropractors are the only professionals who undergo years of training to be the experts at correcting subluxations.

Sometimes. Today’s hectic and stress-filled lifestyles are a constant source of subluxations. Fortunately, our bodies have the ability to self-correct or self-heal many of these minor problems as we stretch or when we sleep at night. When subluxations don’t resolve, you need a chiropractic physician.
