About Naprapathy



What Naprapathy Can Treat

Naprapathy is a 100-year-old profession that has its roots in both osteopathic and chiropractic medicine.  Naprapathic treatments are a gentle, yet effective, means of supporting a person’s innate ability to heal by correcting imbalances in the connective tissue and neuromusculoskeletal systems. Adjustments are made by relaxing and stretching soft tissue in an effort to realign joints and to reduce contracted tissue.

Some examples of conditions your Naprapath can treat:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Work Injuries
  • Stress Complications
