The specialization of Vitality Chiropractic is Neurologically-based Principled Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, holistic and all-natural healthcare approach that looks at a person’s well-being in terms of their entire body rather than just the area where symptoms manifest. Your nervous system controls and coordinates all of the cells, tissues and muscles in your body. It is centered in your spinal cord, and misalignment in the spine can affect the nervous system’s performance, greatly reducing your quality of life and potentially causing numerous health issues.


Our focus is to diagnose, address and correct these pressures, subluxations and misalignments of the spine to address underlying issues of dysfunction ranging from the nerves and muscles to organs, tissues and even cellular problems. Chiropractic works to actively correct these issues by conducting complete and thorough analysis and adjustments of the spine, to restore the incredible natural healing abilities of the human body.


While all chiropractic care focuses on healing the body through the spine, Principled Chiropractic is different in that it operates solely on a model designed to maintain and preserve optimal lifelong health. It doesn’t just seek to correct the current condition and symptoms, but to enhance healing throughout the life.

While most chiropractic methods provide effective temporary relief, true principled correction has lifelong benefits, correcting underlying major causes of ailments rather than simply addressing minor surface problems. Our society functions too much on a “sick care” model, which treats symptoms after they arise; Dr. Christopher Kent recommends regular preventative care to maintain spinal health for years.

Would you wait until your engine freezes up before changing your oil? Of course you wouldn’t. Even more appropriate, would you wait until you’ve got a gum infection before you start brushing your teeth? The same applies to the health of your spine. Never wait for pain or injury—practice routine maintenance on your body instead!


  • Chiropractic History

    Chiropractic care has been around in some form for a very long time, but the profession as a formal means of medical healthcare is over 100 years old. It has constantly evolved and improved in the past century-plus to ensure that patients get the very best care available to live a long and healthy life.

  • Family Health

    Chiropractic care is proven as an effective method of affecting the health and function of your nervous system and by extension the entire body, without invasive procedures or chemical medication. This holistic approach to whole-body health focuses on the correct alignment of the spine to allow the nervous system to function at an optimal level, which in turn encourages the body’s natural healing abilities.

  • Phases of Degeneration

    As we age, the stresses of daily life and activity wear our body down. This can cause our spines to degenerate, which results in pain, reduced mobility and even illness which prevents us from enjoying life and forces us into the role of spectator. For many who want to recover the joy in their daily activities, learning about the phases of degeneration and the means by which chiropractic care can correct the associated problems may be the answer. Chiropractic can fix many problems associated with subluxation degeneration and help senior patients feel years younger and healthier than ever.

  • Pregnancy & Newborns

    Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a woman’s life, but can be difficult to achieve, and even for those who do, it can be a stressful and difficult time. Chiropractic is an ideal means of improving fertility as well as alleviating the pain and discomfort of many pregnancy symptoms and complications.

  • Preventative Healthcare

    True chiropractic care in a principled practice believes that bodily health exists when the body is in a state of wholeness; it understands its own constantly-changing needs, and is able to respond to them on its own. Chiropractic care doesn’t heal injuries; rather, it helps the body to engage its own incredible natural healing abilities through a long-term routine of preventative healthcare maintenance for the nervous system.

  • True Correction Vs Temporary Relief

    Your body is an amazing, but incredibly complex machine, and like the computer system it is, a single pathway that is out of place can cause an astounding number of problems in the vital functions of your organs, nerves, muscles and even your base cells. This framework and associated pathways start in the brain and travel throughout your spine and nervous system. Without good spinal health, your brain experiences a sub-optimal connection with the rest of your body.
