Chiropractors practice a form of health care that focuses on the relationships within the body’s structure, with a focus on the spine.

The spinal chord serves as the main structure of your nervous system by communicating information from the brain to the rest of the body.
Since the McKenzie Method was created in the 1960s, it has become a widespread approach to managing, treating and preventing musculoskeletal pain. Also known as Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, Robin McKenzie – the New Zealand physical therapist who developed this method – originally designed the McKenzie Method to empower patients to take control of their symptoms rather than be dependent on medications and other medical interventions for pain and symptom relief.At United Sports Chiropractic, Sports & Rehabilitation, we use the McKenzie Method to help our patients overcome back, neck and extremity pain, as well as any other pain of spinal origin. We do this by adopting McKenzie’s method of prescribing a series of personalized exercises based on the results of an initial physical therapy assessment.
