Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is an adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is given to align the subluxation to take pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. This will restore proper nerve supply to the body’s organs and allow normal body function. An optimum functioning spine equals optimum health.

2. How does an adjustment feel and how long will it take?

Practice members report that being adjusted feels great. However, in some cases the individual may be sore the first couple of times. An adjustment takes only a minute or two, but the vital nerve energy it releases can last for hours, days, or even weeks, depending on the stage of your care.

3. Is Chiropractic safe?

While 2,000 people die from aspirin this year and thousands more from surgery and drug reactions, chiropractic is safe. So safe that malpractice for chiropractors costs a fraction of what other types of physicians pay.

4. What research has been done on Chiropractic?

Literally thousands of health studies, including research by the U.S. government, have shown that Chiropractic is beneficial in maximizing health, boosting immunity, relieving the symptoms of sickness and disease, and restoring normal function back to the body.

5. Should I be adjusted if I am sick?

An adjustment will help your body regain control and balance to better fight off your condition.

6. Can I be adjusted if I have had an operation on my spine or have old, weak, brittle, or broken bones?

There are many very gentle techniques that can be employed to assure proper safety for newborns to the elderly.

7. Can I be adjusted if I am pregnant?

For normal development of the baby and ease and safety of the birth, being adjusted during pregnancy is not only safe, but essential.

8. Can I adjust myself?

Even chiropractors need chiropractors to adjust them. The worst spines are those of people who manipulate their own spines. Manipulation can even be dangerous. An adjustment moves a specific subluxation in a specific direction.

9. Do you accept insurance?

The real question behind “Do you accept insurance?” is, “Can I afford you?” If you have insurance, fine, but if not, no problem. Our plans are designed to suit any budget. We definitely have the plan that’s right for you.

10. Does Chiropractic really work?

Of course, it has been working for over a hundred years. Chiropractic care continues to work for my patients both here and abroad. I invite you to talk with some of the people who have achieved an improvement in various areas of their lives by using chiropractic as a health maximization tool.

11. Should children & babies see a chiropractor?

Yes, having your babies and kids checked by a chiropractor is very important since babies get out of alignment during the birthing process. A small injury in a child left uncorrected will begin to degenerate and may not show up for 10 or 20 years. Chiropractic is completely safe for babies and kids. What is not safe is allowing your child to grow up with the same problems you are experiencing. The best way to discover the difference between them is to experience it for yourself.
