Q & A

Is chiropractic effective?

Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your spine and muscular system must function well. Restoring spinal and muscular function with Chiropractic treatment decreases pain, allowing for optimal function and improved health.

Why should I see a Chiropractor?

Seeing a chiropractor is not only for back pain and neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to keep your body at its peak performance through nutrition, adjustment and overall wellness. In addition, chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to headaches.

What is Joint Dysfunction?

When the spinal joints and muscles become tight or don't move properly, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as vertebral or spinal joint dysfunction. Joint dysfunctions can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. When the spinal joints and muscles are not working properly, it can put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. These spinal imbalances can lead to pain, dysfunction and a poor quality of life.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In the chiropractic world, medications are not utilized as the primary form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions are often band-aids used to treat symptoms rather than going to the underlying source of the 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 fibromyalgia, headaches and many more.

What is a chiropractic adjustment? Is it safe?

Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective is to decrease the muscular tension and increase the function of the vertebrae that are not functioning properly. Spinal dysfunctions can occur for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these spinal joints are not functioning properly, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to increase the motion of the vertebrae. This happens with gentle pressure and is virtually pain-free.

What can I expect from my visit to a chiropractor?

Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know you. A comprehensive history will be taken, followed by a thorough exam, then a detailed explanation of your problem and proposed treatment plan.

What results can I expect from treatment?

Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of muscles, spinal joints and nerves must function properly. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these correct these dysfunctions and imbalances and allow your body to perform as it was meant to.

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 musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.
