Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?

We look at the whole picture

Like other health-care providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life- Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.

We seek the origin of the problem

Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms.  If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you've had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.

We fix the origin of the problem

Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It's a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system.  The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.

  • Myths & Facts

    Myth #1 - Chiropractors are not real doctors. A chiropractic college grants a D.C. or Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Chiropractors are licensed as health care providers in every U.S. state and dozens of countries around the world. While the competition for acceptance in chiropractic school is not

  • Chiropractic Objective

    What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word "subluxation" comes from the Latin words meaning "somewhat or slight"

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Jill is the best chiropractor I have seen. She takes care of my aches and pains. She uses a form of adjusting that is never that twisting and aggressive kind of adjustment. I am a patient that tenses up with manual adjustments and I like the Dr. Jill offers another option for me. It is easy to get an appointment with Dr. Jill; she always makes time for me. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I was told by my father to always go to a chiropractor that takes x-rays, and Dr. Jill offers x-rays at her office and explained and showed the x-rays to me so I could understand what was going on with my body. I highly recommend Dr. Jill"

  • "Great Job! It is like night and day compared to my first visit. Thank you Dr. Jill!"
    Robert G.
  • "I came in with a very stiff neck and after receiving treatment from Dr. Jill I am feeling much better and I have much more motion in my neck. Dr. Jill and the staff are very nice & friendly."
    Merdanisa D.
  • "After 2 years of hip, low back, groin & leg pain, my medical doctor suggested an MRI to be followed by back surgery. I was very reluctant. I saw an advertisement in the Times News about Dr. Jill Adepoju, and being a believer of Chiropractic Care, I made an appointment. After only a few treatments, I have minimal discomfort and great improvement in all areas, plus my sleepless nights have ended. Exercises are required & must faithfully be performed for optimal results. I'm still working with Dr. Jill and I am looking forward to being pain free & a new motivated person again. Thank you Dr. Jill & thank you to your great staff, it has been a pleasure to be in your care."
    Sincerely, Sharon A.
