How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

How doesn’t it? Many people turn to chiropractic after an injury or trauma. But the benefits of regular chiropractic care are vast and you should be seeing a chiropractor as a part of your general care team for overall health and wellness. Think about it, all of your nerves stem from your spinal column. If your spine is out of alignment, it could be impeding important signals from successfully traveling from your brain to your body and visa-versa. 

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

No, you won’t hear a “pop” every time and it has no bearing on the adjustment. Especially with certain techniques. There are various ways to perform an adjustment successfully. You and your Chiropractor will find the best technique to utilize for your needs.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

SOME, NOT ALL. It is important for you to understand your insurance policy and what your benefits are. MOST insurances have a certain number of visits allowed per year at a certain co-pay or percentage. Our office will happily check your benefits during your exam to give you the most accurate idea possible, but as always you must understand your policy. However, if your insurance does not cover chiropractic, our office offers an affordable time of service cash option as well.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available today. You should always be sure to schedule with a Chiropractor that does a consultation and a full exam before any kind of treatment plan is started or administered. Some people have underlying issues that could be aggravated by a certain adjustment technique, where others may work. The only way to know for sure is to set up a full exam and go over any medical history and imaging that you may have with your chiropractor.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

According to the American Pregnancy Association.”There are no known contraindications to chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint.

A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.

This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as c-sections.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

NO, chiropractic is not addictive or habit-forming. Adjustments do not change your physiology to make you dependent on continued treatment. ... Although feeling great can be addicting

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes! We love seeing kids come into our office. Today more than ever a child's body faces a great deal of physical stress as it grows. Spinal problems, which can lead to nervous system problems in children are very common, and even babies experience misalignment of the spine due to the stress of the birthing process on their tiny bodies. Many parents are surprised to find out that common problems with babies like colic, inability to sleep well, acid reflux, and chronic illness can be attributed to issues with their spine or nervous system. Think about all the benefits adults receive from chiropractic care. Especially with the use of handheld technology that causes drastic postural changes that our kids face today. Making sure their spine is healthy and aligned allows their nervous system and brain to function properly. Only after establishing chiropractic care, many parents realize that their child's issues begin to wane and problems that once surfaced frequently remain at bay.   

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

Contrary to popular belief, chiropractors do have to attend an accredited school for Chiropractic for a minimum of 4 years, plus 2-4 year undergraduate study, depending on state requirements. The amount of material covered in chiropractic school is extensive. The curriculum includes more than 4,500 clock hours of lecture and lab work en route to a chiropractic degree. Similar to medical doctors, chiropractors must prove that they’re clinically prepared to practice by passing four different parts of a national board exam. 

Can I See a Chiropractor If I've Had Back Surgery?

YES. Again, this is where making sure your Chiropractor is doing a consultation, full examination and reviews any imaging before any treatment is rendered.  Only after that can the chiropractor be able to determine the best technique or plan of action to help you.  Surgery could limit what the chiropractor is able to do, but we can adjust other areas of your spine to help get relief.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

Don’t know, everyone's case is different. It is fully dependent on how much degeneration is present, how long you have had the complaint, lifestyle choices, etc..  Our goal is to get you better as fast as we can.  But only after we do an exam can we determine the best course of action.
