FAQs

Not at all! A pop you may be able to elicit is not an adjustment! A Doctor of Chiropractic undertakes up to (8) eight years of education to be able to work individually with every patient. Each nervous system and body is unique. A Doctor of Chiropractic takes years to develop a technique of adjustment for each individual patient.

In majority of the cases, you can be helped. However, it is very important to try and avoid the surgery. Try Chiropractic as the first resort, not the last! Once you undergo a surgery tissues are cut, bones are modified, foreign materials are introduced into the body (surgical staples, stitching, etc…). It makes it much harder and longer to recover after the surgery. However if you already had a surgical procedure consult a Doctor of Chiropractic for a thorough evaluation. The Doctor of Chiropractic will determine if you can be helped.

Sometimes it can. However, in our stressful living conditions we tend to accumulate too much nervous system dysfunctions, which our body is unable to deal with. If we could be locked up in a five star hotel, we might avoid the nervous system dysfunction. But this is unrealistic. We have to live, work and function on a daily basis. Hence we create spinal and nervous system dysfunction.

All our Doctors are highly trained professionals. Therapy done by our highly trained Doctors of Chiropractic should not be painful. In fact, many patients report pleasurable sensation after the treatment.

After the Doctor has carefully evaluated your specific condition, he will explain to you why you are experiencing pain or discomfort.

You may have pain, or sometimes you may “feel OK”, but still have spinal dysfunction and not even know about it.

Like the diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer, or early tooth degeneration, you
may not feel the effects of a spinal dysfunction until it has become symptomatic and painful.

Some patients report instant relief of pain. Many patients report relief of pain either complete or partial within a few short visits to a few weeks under care. This depends on the individual and what kind of health condition you are in currently. The Doctor will be able to inform you of your progress and will approximate the length of your treatment..

Most of the time, the amount of adjustments for pain relief is fairly short. Majority of the patients will report relief within (5) five to (10) ten visits. Some of the patients then choose corrective and prolonged care to restore full function of the body after the pain relief has taken place. Very few individuals have to undergo a prolonged course of treatments if the condition is more serious and has become chronic. The length of care for these individuals depends on their state of health, age and the severity of the illness.

It is “remarkably safe”! According to a New Zealand government study the treatment by a Doctor of Chiropractic are safer and more effective than drugs and surgery. According to the study, Chiropractic Adjustments are (100) one hundred times safer than over the counter drugs/medications for the same types of pain.

Spinal nerves get irritated, stretched, or become dysfunctional. A pinched nerve is extremely rare and usually leads to excruciating pain. Most of the time the pain experienced in the back or neck is due to a “Joint Complex Dysfunction” or a more contemporary term “Dysafferentation”. A Doctor of Chiropractic is equipped to deal with most issues of spinal pain and dysfunction.

Discs never “slip”! It is a misnomer. The disc is fairly hard and is made of cartilage and fiber type of material. It is strongly attached to the bones of the spine hence it cannot “slip”. However it can tear, herniate and bulge. It is usually very painful, because as the disc bulges, tears or herniates it can put pressure on the spinal nerves or the spinal cord.

Doctors of Chiropractic are specially educated to deal with restoration of your nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery. Using only natural methods, a Doctor of Chiropractic will assess the condition of your spine and the integrity of your nervous system. If there are interferences to the nervous system, a Doctor of Chiropractic will remove it by using only natural and the most appropriate technique designed specifically for every patient.

The Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to refer to other professional practitioners. If you cannot be helped by Chiropractic, you will be referred to another practitioner for further evaluation. Your health is our primary concern!

An adjustment is when a Doctor of Chiropractic uses a specific instrument, hands, or a table to work with Joint Dysfunction Complex. An adjustment restores the normal function of your muscular and nervous system. It is an application of a specific force to a distorted bodily part. A force that restores normal function and health.

The sound you may hear is not bones rubbing against one another, as some say, neither is anything breaking, it is a release of liquid/gas mixture your joints, like the sound you hear when opening a bottle of champagne. It is healthy and safe to hear the pops. This type of therapy is scientifically proven and highly beneficial.
