Here is a list of reasons why someone might need chiropractic care:
- Auto Accident
- Work-Related Injury
- Lower back pain
- Upper back pain
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Chronic headaches or migraines
- GI Tract issues

Types of Treatments
Dr. Ben Zahasky received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has been trained in many different techniques of adjustments, meaning that if you are uncomfortable or unsuccessful with one type of adjustment, Dr. Ben will have an alternative method to treat you.
These are the most common types of adjustments in chiropractic. A manual adjustment means that the doctor is using their hands to realign your spine or other joints. Our manual adjustments are specific and precise, helping the body get back into natural alignment. Manual adjustments can be performed on virtually any joint in the body.
An activator is a small device that chiropractors sometimes use to adjust patients. The activator method is the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its effectiveness. With this method, you do not hear the sound of the adjustment, but still receive the benefits.
