Q & A

Is chiropractic effective?

Chiropractic helps to remove postural, neurological and structural imbalances that keep people from having optimal function. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be very healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well. For your nervous system to function well it must be free of interference. By restoring spinal, neurological and muscle function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by aberrant neurology is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health. This along with our specialized treatments give a very high success rate.

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. Did you know that every organ in your body except for the heart has a nerve innervation? New research is showing that nerve input to the glands is vital for optimal health. This is an aspect of health that is just starting to be recognized as vital to well being.  In addition, chiropractic care has been known to help a wide range of conditions from fibromyalgia to diabetes. Chiropractic was also originally used to improve brain and organ function. This is just now starting to be validated and utilized. More and more medical doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists are lining up to learn the arts of adjusting.  Chiropractors have by far the most education of any other doctor when it comes to spinal manipulation. 

What is Subluxation?

When a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position, this is referred to in the chiropractic profession as a subluxation. Subluxations 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 a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain need to be clear in order to be completed properly. There are even links to thyroid health and people that has whiplash injuries.

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, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always 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 fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.

What is a chiropractic adjustment? Is it safe?

We utilize one of the safest forms of chiropractic care along with our treatments. Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, 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 move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.

What can I expect from my visit to a chiropractor?

Going to the Chiropractor is becoming one of the most desirable medical aspects today.  Maybe  you have heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you just want to feel really good all the time. In either case, your first visit usually involves treatments that can have remarkable effects very quickly. 

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 nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the 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 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.

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

What is the benefit of long term chiropractic treatments?

Long term chiropractic care keeps the neurological aspects of your body working better. This increases brain, muscle, nerve, organ, and global health function. With our treatments patients notice the light relaxing effects that we provide every visit.  New research is pointing to joint and chiropractic function as a new way to maintain proper brain function.
