All doctors are taught that 99% of the diagnosis comes from a great in-take interview! The physical evaluations done after the interview are utilized to support the hypothesis drawn from the information gathered. We do both of these things meticulously so that the best treatment approach can be formulated.


We first need to get to the root of your problem, freeing up the spinal nerve root. The adjustment re-introduces the proper mechanical movement of the spine, reducing the pressure on the spinal nerve. We utilize many different techniques, including very gentle approaches for those the don't like the "popping" sound approach. All methods of adjustments can help improve range of motion, pressure on the nerve, reduce inflammation and pain!

Care Methods

We utilize many methods to treat our patients. All of them are safe, natural, and non-invasive. Chiropractic care usually consists of a series of adjustments, which are made by your licensed chiropractor.

Tahquitz Canyon Chiropractic focuses on providing acute care to all patients. We believe that short term, healing care is most productive and we want to see our patients living their lives pain free without long term treatment plans.

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is ideal for patients who wish to treat the cause of their pain in a safe and natural way. Chiropractic does not rely on the use of drugs to treat the symptoms of an issue; rather, the treatment focuses on the source of the issue. In chiropractic, patients take an active role in their healing through healthy lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise.
