What is Chiropractic?
- An approach to health and healing that utilizes the body's inherent and natural recuperative powers.
- A science that emphasizes the importance of maintaining the structural integrity of the body.
- A holistic method that deals with treating the cause of the problem rather than just the symptoms.
What is an adjustment?A spinal adjustment is a gentle and precise movement of the vertebra into its correct position. Adjusting the vertebrae can remove irritation and help the nervous system return to its natural function. As a result, chiropractic adjustments support the body's defense system, maximizing the recuperative powers of the body and minimizing the need for more invasive procedures.
Does an adjustment hurt?Although each patient reacts differently, the procedure is rarely painful. It can cause a variety of reactions from temporary soreness to a sense of relief and well-being.
Is Chiropractic Safe?Chiropractic treatment is extremely safe. In fact the risk of you being injured is in excess of one in a million.
How long can I expect to be under chiropractic care?How long and how often you see a chiropractor will depend on several factors: your age, physical condition, previous history of accidents or surgeries, occupational requirements and how well you adhere to our treatment program. Relief of pain usually happens quickly (within a month), though stabilizing your condition may take longer. This will be discussed with you before you start treatment.
What about playing sports?Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance. Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become increasingly popular. Professional sports teams, Olympic trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractic doctors - because they demand results.
Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or bowl, the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention.
