CHIROPRACTIC Q&A

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC!

 

Chiropractors don’t ‘treat’ or ‘cure’ your symptoms and pain though – we focus on improving spinal and nervous system function so that your body can self-healing. Chiropractic works with the spinal column and it’s intimate relationship with the nervous system – the major controller of all bodily functions. By optimizing spinal column structure, irritation and stress are removed and health can once again be achieved.

Even if you don’t have any pain it’s important to get checked by a chiropractor regularly, the same way you go to your dentist for check-ups. Subluxations (Irritation of nervous system) can be building up without you knowing about it due to 3 stressors(Physical, Chemical, Emotional). Pain and symptoms are usually late signs that your body hasn’t been functioning properly for a long time, and can be prevented. Don’t wait until problems show up! It is easier to stay well than it is to get well.

Subluxation interferes with the flow of information through your nervous system. When the spinal cord is misaligned or subluxated, the exchange of information between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. The result reduced function of your cells, tissues and organs, loss of adaptive ability, and diminished levels of health and life expression.

Subluxations may be caused by physical, chemical or emotional stresses that your body cannot adapt.

Chiropractic adjustments are extremely safe for individuals of all ages. Our Chiropractic adjustments are safe because we thoroughly examine patient’s spine and we only use natural and non-invasive methods of care. It is safer than back surgery, muscle relaxants, and even aspirin. All ages from babies to the elderly enjoy safe, effective care around the world.

The Chiropractic adjustments are generally not painful. In fact, most patients look forward to their visits as many experience quick relief afterwards. Patients who present with moderate to severe pain may experience some discomfort; however, Chiropractic care is always gentle, safe and non-invasive.

No. Chiropractic adjustments are safe for all ages and are modified based on the needs of each individual patient. People in all phases of life can benefit from chiropractic care by improving the health of your spine.

Yes. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including neck and back pain, stiffness, or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual client. In the case of children, the chiropractic care will be gentle.

No. Chiropractor is a primary health provider, meaning you do not need a referral.  If yours is not a Chiropractic case, we will refer you to the appropriate health care provider.

The results of chiropractic care are different for every person as each individual is unique. Many people find they have more energy, sleep better, have greater concentration and focus, are more productive, and have a greater ability to resist disease. We often see this improvement in children with chronic or recurrent ear infections. Other people find that their asthma, headaches, back or neck pain, shoulder, arm or leg symptoms significantly diminish or disappear entirely.

 

The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues, as well, since our spine and nervous system affects our overall function. Chiropractors also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.

It is up to you how far you decide to take Chiropractic care. Most of people recognize the benefit of regular checkups. For some this might mean once per 6 months, for others this may mean once per month or more.

When you first come to our clinic you are probably in a lot of pain but once the spinal tissues are healed and spinal posture are aligned you will have noticed a significant improvement in overall health.

Well managed nervous system control through Chiropractic care can help you stay active and enjoy life. Your posture is one of the first things others notice. Do you stand erect and walk with confidence and power? Or do you slump, lean or appear weak and frail? A healthy spine helps you look good – and feel good.

Just as periodic dental checkups can help detect the early signs of decay before symptoms, regular Chiropractic checkups can identify and correct little problems before they become serious.
