How can chiropractic care help me?
The nervous system controls everything in the body, so it is of utmost importance for the nervous system to function well. Chiropractic is a therapy that uses hands-on techniques to improve the functioning of the nervous system. The process of aligning the spine and joints (called an “adjustment”) has a powerful therapeutic effect on the body.
Chiropractic been providing a safe and natural alternative to invasive therapies for 115 years. Its history is very interesting. The profession has seen a lot of opposition from various groups, but it survives and thrives because the people who try it get results.
Dr. Sheehan uses a variety of gentle techniques to adjust the bones of the spine, skull, joints and soft tissues. These hands-on techniques ensure proper nerve flow to the whole body and are excellent for relieving pain.

If the patient desires, Dr. Sheehan, will advise you on nutritional and holistic factors when appropriate.
