Chiropractors focus on the root cause of your problem. We look to the spine and joint alignment to get your body out of pain and back to its full potential. Chiropractors use very safe and effective spinal adjustments to take the pressure off of nerves and allow the body to heal. Often we will also incorporate exercises, stretching, nutrition and traction into treatment plans to speed up the process. A chiropractor will do a thorough evaluation to get to the cause of your problem and your pain.
Absolutely! It may surprise you to know that chiropractors take around 4700 hours of classroom and clinical studies while medical doctors take around 4550 hours. In fact, the first two years of study for both doctors of chiropractic and medical doctors, the classes and curriculum are almost identical.
The difference is that chiropractors have more hours in spinal adjustments, nutrition, physiotherapy, and advanced imaging while medical doctors take more hours in pharmacology, immunology, and general surgery.
Chiropractic has been around since 1895 and is a well-established profession with decades of history and research to back it. For you, this means a proven track record of being an incredibly safe and effective method of treatment to get your better.
Chiropractors will use adjustments to the spine and/or extremities (knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists, jaw, etc.) to put the body back in alignment so then the body can heal itself naturally. Many chiropractors also will use nutrition, exercises, and various therapies to help with the adjustment and help the body heal even faster.
Chiropractors are extremely useful in that they allow your body to function at its best. When your body is functioning at its best, you are feeling your best and that means you can enjoy life to the fullest and do the things that you love to do.
Yes! In fact, when the spine is in alignment and the nerves coming out of your spine are working at their fullest potential many other parts of the body work better as a result of this. This is because nerves in the body go to other areas and organs in the body as well. For example, the nerves in your low back go to your digestive system and when those nerves aren’t working properly because of a spinal misalignment your digestion can be affected.
Many patients under chiropractic care notice improvements in digestion, sleep, headaches and the list goes on. When your spine is in alignment, your nervous system can function at its best and your body can then function at its fullest potential!
Chiropractic is very safe. In fact, even the Mayo clinic says “Chiropractic adjustments are safe when it's performed by someone trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care. Serious complications associated with chiropractic adjustment are overall rare…”
That depends on a number of factors such as your age, how long you’ve had the condition, the severity, what your x-rays look like as well as any important factors. Every person and condition is unique and therefore every treatment plan is unique and engineered specifically for you.
