Can Chiropractic Help Me?
Chiropractic care has helped millions of people suffering from all types of health conditions and not just neck and back pains. Chiropractic therapy works with the spinal column and the nervous system, which controls all bodily functions.
Are Adjustments Safe?
Usually Yes. Adjustments are very safe with no harmful or dangerous side effects unless there is an underlining condition which an examination should reveal. In fact, adjustments are so safe that newborn infants can receive them.
Do I Have To Keep Coming Back For Treatments?
You have probably heard from others that once you go to a chiropractor you have to keep going back. Before I answer that, ask yourself how many times have you visited your dentist? If you are like most people, you have probably seen your dentist dozens of times. Why? It is probably to prevent your teeth from falling out and/or hurting. Once we have restored your spine to an optimal level of health, it is recommended that you maintain a schedule of periodic spinal checkups. Dentists and many other medical experts are now recognizing that prevention is the key to reducing existing health conditions and minimizing new injuries.
So the answer to your question is yes, we want you to come back for periodic chiropractic checkups. This helps to minimize spinal and nerve stresses, minimize degenerative process, and it will enhance your overall health and wellness.
Do Adjustments Hurt?
Usually no but sometimes can be, due to the condition a person comes in with. Most spinal adjustments are not painful. Most patients actually report that they feel better and often pain free almost immediately but this depends on the condition and how your body responds to the adjustment.
