Frequently asked questions
What is Chiropractic Care? Chiropractic care is a whole-body conservative approach to healthcare that focuses on spinal health and well-being, without the use of drugs or surgery. "Chiro" literally means "done by hand" in Greek. Most of what Chiropractors do is done with our hands.
What is an Adjustment? The foundation of chiropractic care is the adjustment. As Doctors of Chiropractic, we use our hands to manipulate specific areas of your spine and/or extremities to improve your body's function and reduce pain. At times, you may feel or hear clicking sounds, which are perfectly normal and are a result of joint capsules being stretched during the adjustment.
What can I expect from an Adjustment? Most of the time you can expect feeling better after an adjustment. Sometimes you may feel worse or not notice any immediate changes as your body responds to the adjustment. We monitor your condition closely to ensure you are receiving the care your body requires.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to positively effect your health condition by reducing pain and muscle spasm, increasing range of motion, improving mood and more. Chiropractic research most strongly supports adjustments for treating neck pain, back pain and headaches. Countless other examples exist of how chiropractic care may help you or someone you know.
