A Few Questions and Answers

What kind of medical conditions can Chiropractic help with?

Chiropractic is used most frequently to relieve low back pain, but there are many conditions that chiropractic care can help with, such as migraine headaches, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia.

At what age should Chiropractic care begin?

Newborns have received spinal adjustments, especially after difficult or traumatic births. There are case histories of infants close to death who were adjusted in hospitals with seemingly miraculous recoveries.

Is it bad to "crack" your own neck or back?

The desire to pop the neck or back is caused by tension from a jammed or fixated vertebra, which can cause another part of the spine to compensate too much by making a "popping" sound. The jammed part of the spine should be adjusted by a chiropractor so that the spinal column will be balanced and stop being so noisy.

I am not sick or hurting. Should I still see a Chiropractor?

YES. Symptoms are not a good way of judging your health. Some problems only surface after years of body malfunctioning.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic is among the safest of the healing arts. The risk factor is estimated to be less than one million to one.

Do Chiropractic adjustments hurt?

Under normal circumstances, adjustments don't hurt. The patient may experience a minor amount of discomfort during the adjustment and some minor soreness for a day afterward.

Am I adjusting myself by cracking my own neck or back?

No, you are not adjusting yourself, you are merely giving yourself temporary relief, because the cause of the spinal tension has not been corrected!

Is Chiropractic just like massage?

No, chiropractic care deals with the nervous system and bony structures, Massage therapists deal with muscle tension.
