Chiropractic is a drug-free, hands-on, highly skilled treatment that can find and help correct the source of your pain or dysfunction. Trauma, stress, environmental factors, repetitive strain and poor posture can injure your spine and the other joints and tissues throughout your body. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body through the use of adjustments and many other modalities and professional techniques (ART®, Laser).
Subluxations are the improper motion or position of the vertebrae (bones of the spine). They and can cause pain, tenderness, and problems that are distant from the spine (i.e. limb pain, headaches) or can be asymptomatic. These restricted vertebrae negatively affect nerve function, and therefore compromise the health of the affected organs and tissues. An adjustment is the application of a specific force through a poorly functioning or restricted joint by a Chiropractor. Correcting these subluxations allows for a better functioning nervous system and for the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic treatment works because it treats the cause of your back and joint pain, not just the symptoms. The result of an adjustment is a freedom of motion, release of tight muscles and ligaments, relief of pain and tenderness and restored nerve function. The reduction in pain, increased mobility and flexibility and renewed sense of vitality is often immediate.
Every new patient has a unique set of circumstances and health history that leads them to see Dr. Gerber. A friend, family member or physician who has seen the difference our care can make has referred most of our patients. The natural approach to solving health concerns and promoting wellness is a fundamental strength of the chiropractic choice.

Dr. Gerber’s treatment approach relies on relaxing your muscles and easing your mind in order to have a more full and effective result from her care. Just a few of the many conditions that respond well to chiropractic care are lower back and neck pain, headaches, postural strain, stiffness, pregnancy, sports injuries, repetitive strain, limb joint pain, menstrual pain and arthritis.
Most patients begin to feel better even after their first treatment. Some wonder why they didn’t see Dr. Gerber sooner. The teamwork approach begins when patients realize how important their role is in preventing further “insults” to the spine. Wellness chiropractic care includes educating patients on proper stretching, ergonomic (work posture) advice, rehabilitation exercises, diet and lifestyle coaching and “healthy habit” building. This approach allows for consistent correction of the causative factors in your subluxation patterns so that optimal and long lasting improvement can be seen.
Dr. Gerber’s success in her own health - 100 pound weight loss, maintenance, and continued athleticism- inspires her every action with her patients. Her dynamic and enthusiastic approach helps to motivate patients in successfully changing their health. From management of chronic pain to athletic performance, Kyra can help you to discover your distinct path.
She will inspire you to optimize the healing power of your body by removing interfering postural faults, balancing muscles, correcting spinal subluxations, and discovering environmental factors that obstruct your natural ability to heal.
