Frequently Asked Questions
What conditions do Chiropractors treat?
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages with a variety of health conditions. DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations. They also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments, and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction. The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues as well since our body structure affects our overall function.
Are Treatments safe?
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very rare. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment but some may experience mild soreness, or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current literature shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours. Chiropractic treatment is a safe treatment for certain conditions when done by a licensed and experienced chiropractor that correctly diagnoses the problem
Chiropractic care is for patients that seek a more conservative approach, meaning they wish not to have surgery performed or be prescribed pain medications due to the unwanted side effects. Although is it highly effective, no treatment is guaranteed to be 100% effective and if you are not improving under our care, our doctors will refer you out to the right specialists.
