Your Path to Whole-Body Wellness at Integrative Chiropractic in Portland, Maine

At Integrative Chiropractic, we work with your body’s musculoskeletal system – similar to how dentists work with your teeth. From tackling neck and back pain to sports injuries to auto accident injuries, we’re here to help. Our ultimate goal is to use chiropractic care to improve overall health and wellness. We’re proud to serve clients in Southern Maine’s largest population centers, including Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Falmouth, and beyond.

Understanding Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors specialize in how your nervous system communicates with the rest of your body. Here’s how it works: when your brain sends signals to your heart to pump blood or to your legs to walk, these messages travel through a network of nerves that extend down your spine and throughout your body. Sometimes, the vertebrae in your spine can move out of place and squeeze some nerves, causing pain and interfering with the brain’s messages. This can lead to your body functioning less efficiently.

At Integrative Chiropractic, we use adjustments and other treatments to correct these misalignments (also called subluxations), which helps to restore normal nerve communication. This allows your body to function as efficiently as possible.

Chiropractic Techniques Tailored to Your Needs

Everyone is unique, which is why our treatments are personalized. Dr. Hayes, our experienced chiropractor, understands that an infant’s needs differ greatly from a 90-year-old’s. At our clinic, you’ll find safe, effective, and gentle adjustments designed specifically for your needs. From sports chiropractic to family chiropractic, the Hayes family is here to support you with powerful techniques.
