How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care works by balancing the body, restoring proper motion of the spine, ensuring healthy muscle function, and ultimately improving the brain's communication with the body.

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

The sound you may hear during an adjustment is just a sign of gas being released from a joint and not indicative of how effective an adjustment is. It’s the same as when you pull on your finger and it pops; when you go to do it again you are most likely not going to hear another pop because the gas has already been released. Some adjustment styles are able to elicit a sound, while others require no twisting, popping, or cracking.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Some insurance plans do. Coverage depends on the individual's particular plan. Some plans with chiropractic benefits have limitations on the number of visits they will cover, and it’s also important to know that deductibles and copays vary from plan to plan (and are becoming increasingly higher).

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is one of the safest healthcare professions. Chiropractors’ malpractice rates are substantially lower than medical doctors as proof of this fact.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe when applied appropriately by a doctor who has postgraduate training in taking care of pregnant women.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

Chiropractic is not a drug and has no known addictive side effects. People under chiropractic care do experience many positive benefits though, which can lead to the desire to be adjusted on a regular basis to maintain these effects. For this reason and others, many people choose to use chiropractic as a means of supporting a healthier lifestyle.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Some chiropractors also have postgraduate education (which is similar to specialties) in neurology, pediatrics, or nutrition just to name a few.

Can I See A Chiropractor If I've Had Back Surgery?

It depends on the type of surgery. Most of the time, those who have had back surgery can still be candidates for chiropractic care. A history and examination would be needed to further determine the safety for each individual case
