Chiropractors are licensed healthcare professionals who primarily concentrate on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of spinal disorders and other mechanical conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care places a strong emphasis on the body’s ability to heal itself without employing surgery, drugs, or other medical measures.
Patients often experience relief from a wide range of painful and dangerous symptoms by seeking quality chiropractic care. At Smart Health, we address countless health and wellness issues using a variety of approaches. Read more about some of our specific services below.

The “classic” chiropractic treatment, manual adjustments are done by hand to perform a broad spectrum of coordinated contact movements. Manual adjustments may be used to address various patient health and wellness concerns. Applying direct pressure at specific points, we can dramatically improve the function of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and other soft bodily tissues.
The Activator Method
This therapeutic approach requires the use of a specific hand-held tool called the “activator.” A spring-loaded, mechanical instrument, the activator aids in chiropractic adjustment by delivering a rapid, low-force impulse with extreme precision. An activator adjustment can accomplish many of the same benefits as a manual adjustment by improving the body’s alignment and helping with overall body function.
Pregnancy & Pediatric Care
When provided by a chiropractor with proper specialized training, chiropractic care has proven to be safe and effective for pregnant women as well as babies and young children. During pregnancy, chiropractic care has proven extremely helpful in the management of back, hip, and joint pain that goes hand in hand with carrying the extra weight of a baby. Pediatric chiropractic care includes treating young people for conditions that include headaches, sports injuries, poor immune response, allergies, asthma, ear pain, colic, sleep disturbances, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Whether part of a prescribed physical rehabilitation program or for general preventative or restorative purposes, chiropractic exercises can be powerful complements to regular chiropractic office visits. The pelvic tilt and the supine bridge are just a couple of exercises that virtually anyone can do at home to improve their overall health and wellness. When you come to us for treatment, corrective exercises may be one way that your treatment continues outside of our office!
Using a traction table, we employ spinal decompression to gently stretch the spine. By altering the position and force placement of the spine, spinal decompression reduces pressure on the spinal disks (gel-like cushions that separate every vertebrae in the spine). This process can cause bulging and herniated disks to retract, which can relieve back pain, improve flexibility, and promote healing by moving nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen to these disks.
Whether it’s caused by a car accident, a fall, or simply poor posture, abnormal cervical lordosis (abnormal neck curve) can adversely affect nerve, ligament, and muscle function. As shown in numerous research studies, those adverse effects can be reversed by correcting cervical lordosis, relieving pain, and improving overall health.
The Cervical Denneroll Orthotic Device is a simple, yet complex, pillow-like device engineered with curves, angles, and ridges extrapolated from the CBP evidence-based cervical spinal model. With simple training and education, we instruct our patients to properly position the Cervical Denneroll device for low-stress, comfortable mirror-image traction (spinal remodeling) treatments both in the office and at home.
