How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

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

No, you do not need to hear a sound for the joint to move and make a correction. Making sure the joints have proper motion is what’s important, not the sound.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Yes, most insurance companies do cover chiropractic. But since each insurance covers differently, the best thing to do is bring in your insurance card and we can check what your specific plan covers.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Very safe. In 2007, SPINE (one of the world's most respected medical research journals) looked at data from over 50,000 Chiropractic adjustments given to nearly 20,000 patients, and they found Chiropractic care to be incredibly safe and effective.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I’m Pregnant?

Yes, as the adjustments will be done differently to accommodate the growing baby and ensure the comfort of the mother. The adjustments will also help with a lot of pains associated with pregnancy and can help make the delivery easier.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

No, no one has ever gone into withdrawals from discontinuing care. Most people continue care to stay healthy, because like exercise and eating right, they like how it makes them feel.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes, not only is it safe, it is essential to ensure the healthy development and function of the spine and nerve system.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

In total, a chiropractor attends an average of seven years in school. They first complete a minimum of two years of college education focusing on the basic sciences before they can attend an accredited chiropractic college. Once in chiropractic college, students must complete 4-5 academic years of professional study.

Can I See A Chiropractor If I’ve Had Back Surgery?

Yes, accommodations will have to be made for the surgical area, but chiropractic care is very important in order to ensure proper function of the rest of the spine and to prevent further damage. The initial cause of the damage that resulted in the need for surgery will also need to be addressed, which is most often a problem with spinal alignment.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

Pain goes away in about 1-4 weeks depending on the severity of the damage. There are three stages to the healing process and pain relief is only the first stage. The second stage the body begins to repair the damaged tissue, and the third stage the body starts to stabilize the area by strengthening the tissue. In an incomplicated case it will take a minimum of three months to complete this process. Like a broken arm, the pain may be gone in a week or two, but the fracture is not completely healed for about 3 months.
