What is chiropractic?
The goal of chiropractic is to promote health and wellness for the entire family. It’s most commonly sought out to treat aches, pains, and discomfort in the back, neck, head, and joints. Chiropractic means “to be done by hand” and is a natural form of healthcare that works directly with the nervous system to help facilitate the body’s natural healing process. Once the nervous system is running at its full potential, patients can experience a higher quality of life, both physically and mentally.

What do chiropractors do?
Doctors of Chiropractic use a variety of techniques to deliver specific chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments reduce aches and pains, and help you manage various back, neck, and spine related conditions. They understand the important relationship between the nervous system and spine, and know how to use chiropractic to restore the structural integrity of the spine and reduce stress on neurological tissues. Chiropractors also educate their patients on how to achieve a healthier lifestyle through exercise, ergonomics, and other therapies. They encourage you to take control of your own health so you can become the best version of yourself.
What types of chiropractic treatments are offered?
Our chiropractic services are designed for patients of all ages with varying conditions. Chiropractic sessions are private so you will never be handed off to an assistant or aide. Care plans are always tailored to your needs so you can bounce back from your injury or condition faster. Our Chiropractor utilizes a variety of techniques which don’t always include the cracking or popping sounds.
Our Chiropractor uses a variety of techniques which don’t always produce the cracking or popping sounds. For example, a handheld instrument called an activator may be used to deliver fast, low-impulse force to specific points. The activator is designed to restore motion to a targeted area and does not make that typical snapping noise.
Interested in learning more about the activator method or have questions about chiropractic in general? We invite you to come in for a free, no-obligation Discovery Visit. Discovery Visits are 15 minutes long and give you the chance to discuss your health concerns, ask questions, and go over treatment options.
Chiropractic for kids
We offer chiropractic care for children too. Just like adults, kids experience stress during everyday life too. Bumps and bruises are daily occurrences as kids learn to stand, walk, and explore. Bigger falls can sometimes lead to spinal and pelvic dysfunction or misalignment, which can hinder healthy development.
Chiropractic for everyday health
Even if you aren’t experiencing pain right now, chiropractic care can help maintain your healthy lifestyle. Just like taking your car for a wheel alignment, chiropractic promotes the longevity and function of your spine. It also ensures optimal movement, allowing your body to function at its best.
Approximately 5 weeks ago I was suffering from lower back pain to the point I was being kept up at night and unable to sit at the dinner table, on the couch, or in my car comfortably. As I work with children I need my body functioning at it's best. I found Royal Treatment Therapeutics and booked my first ever Chiropractic appointment with Dr. Pavin Rakhra. In that appointment the process of Chiropractics was explained, and my first adjustment took place. I have maintained visits 1 - 2x a week since my initial visit and followed the prescribed exercises, stretches, and advice from Dr. Pavin Rakhra. I continue to see improvements after each visit and intend to maintain weekly visits to ensure I don't fall back into old habits. The clinic is clean, the staff are friendly, and I am never left in the waiting room past the start of my appointment time. I have recommended Dr. Pavin Rakhra and Royal Treatment Therapeutics to any friends who are considering Chiropractic, Physio Therapy, or Massage Therapy in the future.
