Chiropractic care can treat a variety of symptoms and ailments, from migraines to sore feet. Below are the most common circumstances in which chiropractic is an appropriate choice. If you aren’t sure if chiropractic is for you, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
You have been in an accident.
Trauma, such as that which can be caused by an automobile or other type of accident, can cause a spinal misalignment. This can result in irritation of your nerves, bones, ligaments, joints and discs. Even minor accidents can result in misalignments and nerve damage. We can give you a physical assessment to determine if your body has experienced structural changes as a result of the accident and if so, determine a treatment schedule to address this and prevent future damage.
You have experienced a sports injury or work-related injury
At work and at play, stress and overuse are always a risk. Repetitive stress or overuse can result in the restriction of your range of motion and subsequently your strength, coordination and endurance. Chiropractic care can help your body restore normal nerve function and range of motion so that you can be back at your peak.
You are pregnant
Chiropractic is a great choice for expecting moms who don’t want to risk taking over-the-counter medications that may be unsafe for their unborn baby. The additional weight on your body during pregnancy coupled with the adjustments your body is making in preparation for delivery can result in pain in a variety of areas. We offer safe chiropractic care for pregnant women that will alleviate your aches and soreness throughout your pregnancy.
You have a baby or young child
Parents of young children are often stressing their back and other ligaments and bones when they carry their child or children. Often parents are sore in the same places from carrying a baby in one arm or a child on one hip. Regular chiropractic adjustments allow your body to “reset” to its normal structure before aches and pains turn into injuries or chronic problems.
Kids can benefit from chiropractic care too!
You’d be surprised how an ill-fitting car seat or a heavy or lopsided backpack can affect a child’s spinal health. A seemingly harmless tumble or fall can jar the body and cause problems that go undetected for years. Add in the fact that babies and young children grow quickly and you have plenty of reasons to take your child in for regular spinal exams for corrective and preventative care and peace of mind for you.
As your child grows into a young adult, they become more serious in sports and in school, and with that comes stress. Developing good lifestyle habits are of utmost importance during these years in order to prevent chronic problems and pain down the road.

You feel just fine.
Chiropractic care can keep you feeling great! You may have spinal irregularities you are currently unaware of that could develop into problems without proper prevention. Just as you take your car in for regular maintenance and visit the dentist for check-ups, so should you schedule regular visits to Dr. Michael McGivney at his office in Rye, NY, for an assessment to ensure that any developing problems are addressed early on and that your body is enabled to heal itself.
