Common Chiropractic Questions
Do adjustments hurt?
Adjustments are painless.
Are all patients adjusted the same way?
Every patient is unique, which is why it is so important that our chiropractors have training in many different techniques that help our patients heal as quickly and comfortably as possible. We do not believe in “one size fits all” chiropractic.
Every adjustment is tailored individually to the patient’s specific case. There are many ways to restore spinal health. The patient’s age, diagnosis, pain level, possible pregnancy and comfort level are all important factors.
For more information about the various techniques the doctors use please visit our Techniques page.
Once I go to a chiropractor do I have to keep going?
Absolutely not! Once is better than never, yet many people do choose to continue to receive the benefits of chiropractic. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
Is chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic is one of the safest health professions in the world. In fact, it is the largest natural health profession in the world.
Can a person who has had back surgery or fracture still see a chiropractor?
Definitely. Conditions such as these often place extra stress and tensions on the spine and tissues. To leave this extra stress unchecked leads to further problems in other areas. Xrays and other tests will be done to ensure that chiropractic is the right choice for you.
What kind of education does a chiropractor have?
A chiropractor’s education is the same length as a general practitioner. Chiropractors do a minimum of 3 years undergraduate work followed by 4 years of chiropractic schooling. In fact, chiropractic education is so extensive, chiropractors are one of the very few professionals who have the knowledge to diagnose patients, read Xrays and are given the title doctor.
How do I know if I can benefit from chiropractic?
A case history, thorough exam and possible Xrays are done on the first visit. The doctor will then take the time to ensure that you understand the cause of your symptoms and the recommended course of action. If the doctor determines that you are not a chiropractic case you will be referred to the appropriate health practitioner.
Can I use my insurance to pay for my care?
Most likely, yes. Our trained insurance specialists will be able to review your insurance details and let you know the most efficient way to receive its benefits.
