A complete check of your spine is essential to the way your body moves, feels and responds to stresses. The brain is the center of all communications to and from your body. Those communications are sent and received through the spinal cord that is protected by the bones called vertebrae that make up your spine. The spinal cord has nerves that exit the bones of the spine and go out to the body in order to communicate with structures such as muscles, bone position, and organs. The ability for nerves to communicate with the spinal cord depends greatly on the spine efficiently moving to meet the demands of the body. Chiropractic care is designed to detect places in the spine that do not move efficiently and correct them with a careful, precise adjustment. Dr Roller uses several techniques based on many different factors including body type, age, gender, other medical conditions, sensitivity to touch, preference and safety.

Chiropractic was based on the philosophy that an adjustment should be done 'by the hand" of the chiropractic doctor.
