Chiropractic is based on science, art, and philosophy. Chiropractic, at its core, is the detection and correction of a condition commonly known as Vertebral Subluxation. Vertebral Subluxation occurs when one or more of the spinal bones misalign and lock out of place. This causes the spinal bones and discs to become damaged. Most importantly, this causes an obstruction of vital nerve transmission throughout the body. Nerves carry vital information throughout the body that keeps the body functioning properly and ultimately alive.
Chiropractic care is designed to locate, analyze and correct a condition commonly known as Vertebral Subluxation. Subluxation occurs when one or more of the spinal bones misaligns and locks out of place. Chiropractic care consists of using a precise force, called an adjustment, to help the body realign the spinal bones and take any obstructions off the nervous system.
Absolutely! There are many types of doctors. There are doctors of philosophy, doctors of chemistry, medical doctors, dentists, osteopathic doctors and chiropractic doctors. In the healthcare field, all those using the term doctor have passed rigorous academic classes, taken and passed national and state board examinations and are licensed in the state that they practice. Chiropractors are no different.
That is a great question. The resounding answer is YES! Chiropractic has helped hundreds of millions of people around the world regain their health and quality of life. To know if chiropractic can help you, have a full evaluation and find out.
The most common side effect is feeling great. However, I do not think that is the answer you were expecting. The fact is there can be some soreness (like after a workout) after an adjustment. Sometimes, a headache can result from an adjustment. These side effects happen to a minority of people and when they do happen, it is typically after one of the first couple of adjustments. After that, there are typically no side effects.
This is probably one of the most often asked questions. I would love to tell you exactly how many chiropractic sessions it will take until you feel better. I would also like to tell you how may chiropractic sessions if will take to reach maximum improvement. However, the reality is I cannot do that. There are too many variables to be able to answer this question. So, here is what I can tell you. We will do the most thorough chiropractic evaluations that you have ever had, analyze the results of your tests, and recommend a game plan that will get you the results you want in the fastest period possible. We have been doing that for over 30 years.
Yes! I have taken care of many pregnant women over the years, including my wife. In fact, pregnancy is one of the best times for chiropractic care because your body is changing and your center of gravity is shifting. These reasons, among others, make for a perfect time for chiropractic care. Our pregnant patients tell us that they have less aches and pains, morning sickness, and more energy when they are adjusted. In the end, proper alignment and function of the sacrum and pelvis are essential to a smoother delivery.
Chiropractic adjustments do not hurt. In fact, many of my patients tell me that not only do they like the way they feel AFTER their adjustments, but they also enjoy the process of the adjustment itself.
Chiropractic adjustments are exceedingly safe. All healthcare providers need to have malpractice insurance in order to practice. The insurance industry make it their business to charge the appropriate insurance premiums based on risk. The higher the risk the more expensive the malpractice insurance. The lower the risk, the lower the premiums. Chiropractors have the lowest insurance premiums for malpractice insurance than any other doctor. Why? Precisely because chiropractic is extremely safe.
I have been in practice for over 30 years and back when I started, I can remember people thinking that I got my degree from a Cracker Jack box (boy that dates me, lol). The reality is, chiropractic doctors spend as much if not more time academically than their counterparts (medical doctors, and dentists). Medical doctors have more residency than chiropractors do, but that is because they are responsible for more than chiropractors are. I have degrees in electrical engineering, mathematics, and computer science and I can tell you that the rigors of my chiropractic education where more difficult than any of those degrees.
