Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care uses natural health methods such as exercise, nutrition, and adjustment/manipulation. When an examination or X-Ray reveals that certain joints are not in proper function, adjustments are applied to correct alignment/mobility, relieve muscle and nerve tension and improve balance and assist healing.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Yes. Chiropractic care is one of the safest types of health care. Without the use of drugs or surgery Chiropractors utilize a conservative approach when correcting vertebral subluxations.
What Is A Chiropractic Adjustment?
The body depends on the free flow of nerve communication from the brain, through the spinal column, to every part of the body. When any of these nerves become twisted this communication system is interrupted. These neurological interruptions are called subluxations.
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of introducing a specific force in a precise direction applied to a vertebra that is subluxated. The adjustment releases the vertebra back into its normal position along the spine, allowing proper nerve flow to and from the brain.
What does is feel like to get adjusted?
Chiropractic patients are very comfortable and relaxed while getting adjusted. An adjustment should not be painful. When you allow the vertebra in your spine to return to their normal position, there is less stress and tension on your muscles and ligaments.
Can Chiropractic Help Me?

What Happens On The First Visit?
You will fill out a complete health history detailing past injuries or problems and present symptoms. The symptoms help the chiropractor determine where you are subluxated and what technique to use. Your chiropractor will give you a complete examination consisting of various testing procedures and/or x-rays to help determine where you are subluxated. Your chiropractor will review your case history with you and discuss how you may be helped through chiropractic care.
What Causes Vertebral Subluxations?
Subluxations are caused daily by falls, sports activities, accidents/injuries, bad posture, and physical and emotional stress. Subluxations can cause pain and muscle spasms. However, most of the time you will not experience any symptoms. Often symptoms such as headaches, back pain, neck stiffness, pain in your shoulders, arms or legs, numbness in your hands and feet can be signs of subluxations.
