“Dr Tilson is amazing! He is gentle and takes his time to really treat the root of your problem. He has helped me so much and even though my pain is gone, I still see him regularly for adjustments so that I can stay healthy and never visit that pain I was once in before I started seeing him. He adjusts my children, too, and they love him! Fantastic office, fantastic doctor.”  T. S.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic adjustments are the application of precise pressure to correct misalignments, allowing for the relief of stiffness and pain, allowing the body to heal itself. Adjustments restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body heal naturally without the use of medical treatments, drugs or surgery without side effects.


Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive and drug free form of health care where a doctor of chiropractic care performs a physical adjustment to specific parts of the body by applying varying pressure in order to provide pain relief. When one or more bones move out of position, this creates pressure or irritation on nerves (subluxation).


The Vertebral Subluxation Complex or "subluxation" for short, is a misalignment and dysfunction of one of the bones in your spine (vertebrae). This dysfunction compromises the normal functioning of your nerves and can influence your overall health and wellbeing.

  • Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe?
    Chiropractic adjustments are very safe when applied by a licensed chiropractor in a clinical setting. Chiropractors spend many years of training on examination and correction of the spine and are the most qualified professionals to perform spinal adjustments. Dr. Tilson will assess you for any risks before commencing care.
  • How Tilson Chiropractic FamilyCare Can Help You Find Relief?
    We treat patients of all ages ranging from one month old to over ninety years old. Whether your condition is injury-based or chronic, the faster you receive care for correction, the treatments will be shorter and more effective. With chiropractic care, Tilson Chiropractic FamilyCare can help you to relieve pain, reduce recurring pain, and correct and strengthen your muscles and spine. Chiropractic care includes but is not limited to neck manipulation and spinal adjustments. These are just some of the many different situations that may cause subluxation: • Muscles becoming tense when stressed. • Auto injury, personal injury or work injury. • Sitting in front of the computer or T.V. • Working out, sports or recreational sports. • You are pregnant or have had children. • Typing or heavy lifting (carpal tunnel) • Sitting for long periods of time or standing on your feet all day.
  • Why Do I Need Adjustments If I’m Not In Pain?
    Chiropractic is about healing the brain-body connection through the spine. Chiropractors are specialists of the nervous system, composed of the brain, spinal cord and all the accompanying nerves. The goal of adjusting the spine is to restore proper motion, improve spinal function and remove interference from the nervous system. By relieving subluxations of the spine, your nerves can properly relay information to and from your brain to the rest of your body. Only 10% of nerves are able to process pain, leaving many subluxations to go undetected while affecting up to 90% of your nerves. Visiting your chiropractor regularly to assess your spinal biomechanics and nervous system can help detect, maintain and prevent dysfunction throughout your body.
  • What is the "Popping" Sound I Sometimes Hear During Adjustments?"
    The popping noises are called "cavitations" and are caused by gas bubbles being released from spinal joints during an adjustment. This noise is completely normal and does not cause any pain or discomfort. Synovial fluid is produced from the joints of your spine. By-products of synovial fluid are oxygen, nitrogen, and CO2 gasses. When a joint is gapped, the gas is released. Once the joint opens up, the synovial fluid re-lubricates the joint surface and normal motion is restored. Just as you "pop" a bottle of champagne, the results are worth celebrating!
