Although chiropractic's primary focus is the relationship between the skeleton (chiefly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body.
Dr. Boonstra uses various diagnostic methods to determine the state of your health, paying particular attention to your spine, and its function.
Spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy (specifically Active Release Technique) and other manual therapies are Dr. Boonstra's primary methods of helping your body heal itself.
