Along with our flagship clinic in North Anchorage, the decision to build a second clinic off Old Seward Hwy. to the south was really decided by the community. Some of our elderly patients needed a more convenient location, as did people with long work commutes.

Frequently Asked Questions about Chiropractors:

What is a chiropractor? A chiropractor is a trained medical professional who sets the focus of care on neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues centering around the spine. A chiropractor works to maximize the health of the body through spinal manipulation and adjustment, joint care, and related treatment procedures.The term ‘chiropractor’ originates from the Greek terms χείρ (kheir), meaning ‘of the hand,’ and πρακτικός (praktikos), meaning ‘practical, concerned action.’ This comes into English as ‘chiro’ + ‘practic’ meaning work done by hand. Therefore, we understand chiropractic care to include the care of a patient as it is put directly into the hands of a trained physician for direct healing.

Chiropractic: What Is It?

Chiropractic is a philosophy, art, and science. A diagnosis is made through observation and testing, and then treatment is performed based on training and experience. This is a similar process used by a medical doctor. The main dissimilarity is that some doctors may treat patients with surgery and drugs so as to deal with signs of pain and illness.

Although the problem is in your neck, a pinched nerve frequently causes pain that shoots down into your arm. The pain may come on slowly or suddenly. Juneau chiropractors can help determine how to treat and eliminate or diminsh pinched nerve pain.
