Frequently Asked Questions

What is Chiropractic?

To better understand this question, we should first understand how our body works. The nervous system is a key part of your body. It is the communication system between your brain and all of your muscles, organs and tissues in your body. The way your brain communicates to the rest of the body is by the spinal cord and the nerves that branch off of it. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must communicate and function well, and be free of interference.

Body Functions and the Autonomous Nervous System

The term 'nerve interference' can also be called a 'vertebral subluxation' or 'misaligned vertebrae'. This misaligned vertebrae can cause pressure to be put on your nerves exiting different areas of the spine. When there is interference in the nervous system, we may not feel it, and we may not even know it! Sometimes, the problem occurs for an extended amount of time and our bodies show symptoms as a way to get our attention. Some of the symptoms can include: backache, muscle spasms, tension, tingling in the arms and legs, headaches, fatigue, improper digestion, lowered immune function, etc. The Chiropractor will do a thorough evaluation of your spine and nervous system to determine where your subluxations (misalignment) are, and establish what individual care is needed.

How Chiropractic Works?

Regular chiropractic care helps by correcting vertebral subluxations, postural imbalances and structural misalignments, all of which can accumulate in our bodies over time. The benefit of chiropractic care is that we help correct the source of your problem, not just covering up the symptoms.

Why Chiropractic?

As we grow and change from infants into adults, our spines also changes because of the amount of physical stress it takes. From traumas like accidents,falls, sports injuries to improper posture at work and at home with the kids.

Without proper care and checkup's the spine can develop problems just like our teeth, eyes and heart can develop problems. Left unchecked, these changes may lead to pain, stiffness, degeneration or other more serious problems. Getting your spine check is your first step to a new and better lifestyle!

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Chiropractic is one of safest healthcare professions in the world. This is a well known concept in the health industry as Chiropractors average one of the lowest malpractice insurance in the health field.

An average chiropractor spends about 1/20th of the price of malpractice premiums from medical doctors. According to the Journal of American Medical Association, there will be 250,000 deaths this year due to the incorrect use of medicine, making it the third leading cause of death in the United states. Chiropractic has proven to be safe and effective year after year helping people with all different types of conditions.
