Lots of people hear the word “chiropractor” and think immediately of the back and spine. And while it’s true a chiropractic adjustment can help with all sorts of back pain and other issues related to the spine and back, that’s just one part of what a chiropractor does. At Chiropractic First in Wyoming, MI, we serve the surrounding communities of Kentwood and Grand Rapids by using advanced chiropractic techniques to manage a broad array of both acute and chronic health issues to help patients of all ages enjoy better health and wellness.
How Can A Spine Adjustment Help Me Have Better Health?
The back and spine are complex structures, with bones, joints, muscles and many other tissues all working together to help us stand, walk, lift and perform many other tasks, ideally without pain or stiffness. In addition, the spine contains all the nerves that travel from the brain to every other part of your body, transmitting important signals that “tell” the organs and other tissues how to function. These nerves exit the spine at different points so they can travel to the arms, legs, organs and other areas of the body.
When the bones of the spine slip out of alignment due to injury or every day stress and strain, the nerves can become “pinched” and irritated, and the signals between the brain and the rest of the body become blocked or distorted. As a result, important body functions are disrupted, leading to pain and other symptoms and also contributing to many acute and chronic health issues. A skilled chiropractor can assess your spine to determine where nerve impingements and inflammation are occurring, performing carefully directed adjustments aimed at shifting the bones and joints back into their proper alignment so nerve signaling can occur normally.
What Services Does Our Chiropractor Offer?
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we offer a complete array of complementary treatment options including:
- Corrective exercises to restore strength and flexibility to affected muscles and joints

Will My Insurance Cover the Cost of My Treatment?
That depends on your plan. Ask your plan administrator or ask our office staff to inquire on your behalf. We also offer flexible payment options for those without insurance and for those whose insurance does not offer complete coverage for chiropractic care.
