Frequently Asked Questions
IS CHIROPRACTIC EFFECTIVE?
WHY SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
WHAT IS SUBLUXATION?
HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC CARE WORK?
In the chiropractic world, drugs are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are often a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as Band-Aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.
While it’s often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include sports injuries, headaches and many more.
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT? IS IT SAFE?
When these bones are out of place or not moving properly, it has an overall systemic effect on the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems. Without proper alignment, movement, and flow of all nerves and systems in the body, we cannot function at our peak.
An adjustment is often a quick and deliberate movement from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a joint. It is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like the cracking of knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is in reality the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY VISIT?
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM TREATMENT?
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it’s very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.
