Have you ever wondered why so many of your friends and family are under chiropractic care? Or have you found yourself curious about chiropractic adjustments and practices and how they are beneficial?  Take a look at some of the most commonly asked questions and answers.

 

Chiropractic is a healing art that is based on the fact that your body has the potential to use its own abilities to keep you in optimum health. Chiropractic care is for everyone – no matter your age, fitness level, or relative health.
Yes! In fact, it is among the safest of the healing arts – even for infants and the elderly! In many instances, x-rays will be taken (except for pregnant women) and a plan of care will be established before the first spinal adjustment to ensure that your specific needs and safety concerns are met.
That choice is yours. After reaching their initial goals, many patients decide to continue their care with regular checkups to ensure their overall wellness.
Quite the opposite! It can help to prevent your joints from deteriorating and wearing out early. When a chiropractor adjusts the spine, only the vertebrae that need it are adjusted to prevent a weakening of the associated muscles and ligaments.
Yes! In fact, more and more doctors of medicine are realizing the value of chiropractic care and are even referring their patients for the care of their spinal conditions. It’s even safe for people who have had back or neck surgery.
Yes. Symptoms are a poor way to judge health, surfacing only after years of body malfunction. For example, a heart attack is the final symptom of years of deterioration in the heart and its blood vessels. Similarly, deterioration in the spine can remain hidden for years.
The nervous system controls every cell of your body. Information travels back and forth between the brain and every tissue and organ in the body. The bones of the spine (vertebrae) can interfere with this exchange by compressing or irritating the spinal nerves. Ill health, impaired function, and pain can result from this interference. Chiropractic care helps restore the integrity of the nervous system by reducing interference caused by the spine.
