Frequently Asked Questions

What is chiropractic care?

     Chiropractic care is a profession based on interactions of the spine and nervous system, as well as the surrounding muscles.

Why see a Chiropractor?

     Chiropractic care helps you achieve and maintain the quality of life you desire and deserve by naturally treating the root cause of your issues and not just the symptoms.

What types of pain do chiropractors treat?

     Chiropractors are known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches. They also treat sports injuries and other disorders involving muscles, ligaments and joints. The benefits of chiropractic care go beyond this and extend into general health as our core body structure affects overall function and health.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

     A chiropractic adjustment is a specific, controlled force in a precise direction that is applied to a spinal joint not moving properly or “subluxated”.  The purpose of this natural and safe procedure is to correct structural alignment and eliminate interference in the nervous system. For the patient, this means improved spinal function, reduction in pain, and an overall improvement in health and wellness.

Can I see a chiropractor if I am pregnant?

     Many pregnant women find that chiropractic adjustments improve the pregnancy experience and make delivery easier. Adjustments are adapted to accommodate the stage of pregnancy and the unique needs of each patient.

Is back pain common?
