What is a chiropractor?

A Chiropractor is a doctor who focuses on finding and correcting vertebral subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment in the spine that can put pressure on the nerves leading to major problems throughout the body.

Are Chiropractors Doctors?

Yes, they are doctors who focus on the nerves which are protected by the spine. They are not MEDICINE doctors like you traditionally think about when you hear the term doctor.

What Does a Chiropractor Do?

A chiropractor finds and corrects misalignments within the spine taking pressure off the nerves.

Are Chiropractors Safe?

Extremely safe. Chiropractic is recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive form of care. This is because chiropractic works using the body's natural healing process and doesn't interfere by using drugs or surgery. The proof lays in the difference that a medical doctor pays in malpractice insurance in comparison to a chiropractor. Malpractice insurance for a chiropractor is 10x less expensive than a medical doctor because we do not use drugs which have tons of side effects and complications.

Are There Chiropractic Adjustment Side Effects?

Yes - feeling better, more energy, less arthritis, sleeping better, more mobility, and maybe some soreness.

How Many Chiropractic Sessions Do You Need?

Everybody is different. A good chiropractor will do a careful evaluation, take necessary x-rays to see the condition of the spine, and with that information, lay out the best plan possible for that patient. Chiropractic is not an overnight fix. It takes some time for your spine to get the way it is and it will take some time to get better.

How Much Does Chiropractic Care Cost?

Typical visits here are about $30-$50, depending on whether or not you have insurance and what that insurance may cover. If you do not have insurance, we are always happy to work with you. We have great plans for those with and without insurance. We would rather you be healthy than be concerned with finances.

How Do Chiropractors Relieve Pain From Injuries or Accidents?

By carefully evaluating the spine for any injuries and laying out a plan to get that person shaped up as best as possible while their body heals. This will work to minimize the scar tissue and future problems they might develop.

How Does A Chiropractor Help Lower Back Pain?

Finding and correcting misalignments of the spine that put pressure on the nerves that can cause the low back pain.

How Does A Chiropractor Help Neck Pain?

Finding and correcting misalignments of the spine that put pressure on the nerves that can cause the neck pain.

How Does A Chiropractor Help Sciatica?

Finding and correcting misalignments of the spine that put pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Why Do Adjustments Sometimes Make a Popping Sound?

That is pressure coming out of the joint. It is like when you open a can of tennis balls and all of that air pressure comes out.

WILL I BE REQUIRED TO REMOVE MY CLOTHING AT MY APPOINTMENT?

Typically no - however during the first visit you may be asked to put on a gown for x-rays or so the doctor can examine your spine more closely. After that, no clothing is typically removed.

IS CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN?

Absolutely! Studies have found that many health problems that develop in adulthood have the potential to be avoid with early chiropractic care. Ridding the body of nerve interference has the potential to decrease or possibly eliminate a child's chances of being colicky and developing allergies, asthma, ADD/ADHD or ear infections. Ask yourself - would you rather grow healthy kids or repair damaged adults?

WHAT TYPE OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING DO CHIROPRACTORS HAVE?

The schooling is almost identical to medical doctors - except chiropractors DO NOT study pharmaceuticals (because we are a drugless healing profession) - and we get courses on chiropractic adjusting - whereas MD's do not.

CAN I GET CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY?

YES! You are now not only caring for yourself but the life of your child. Pregnancy puts a lot of stress on a woman's body creating nausea, vomiting, back pain, hip pain, etc. Getting adjusted throughout a pregnancy helps alleviate all these symptoms but the benefits don't stop there. Getting regular chiropractic care during pregnancy has been shown to reduce labor time by up to 50%. There is also a decreased likelihood for the need for drugs during delivery.
