Frequently Asked Questions //

What is chiropractic?

 

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments that can cause an impingement on the nerves. The adjustment corrects this misalignment and restores proper function to the nervous system, permitting normal nerve transmission, and assisting your body with operating in its most optimal potential.

What are the benefits of care?

 

For starters, adjustments can help with restoring proper range of motion to your body, along with decreasing pain and inflammation. In addition, relaxing tissue tone and muscle spasms, which can all contribute to improving your overall quality of life. Moreover, faster recovery time via non-invasive treatment, preventing the worsening of symptoms. Chiropractic care offers pain relief without the constant use of drugs, addressing the source of the problem, rather than masking it with medication

Why see a chiropractor after an accident?

 

It's ideal to seek treatment right away, whether pain is present or not, because, unseen injuries can show up days after impact. 

For some, pain can appear within minutes or hours, while for others, it can appear days or even months after the accident. Even the most minor collision can lead to chronic injuries in the future if not addressed in a timely manner. Failure to seek care can result in residual symptoms that can take months or years to fully heal, costing you thousands in future medical expenses.   

Will I need to get X-rays?

 

Following a thorough examination, if it is determined that imaging studies are necessary, you will be referred to an imaging facility where X-rays can be taken. Imaging studies are usually indicated following an acute injury or trauma and can help with identifying any serious spinal conditions or degeneration in the spine.

What conditions do you treat?

We diagnose and treat many spinal disorders that can cause musculoskeletal and nerve pain, such as: whiplash, headaches, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, herniated disks, sports related injuries, osteoarthritis, muscle/tendon/ligament damage, just to name a few. Personalized treatment plans are then created to not only alleviate discomfort, but to identify the root cause of the problem. Getting to the root cause will help with preventing the reoccurrence of pain in the future.
