What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors look for areas in the spine that are misaligned and correct the misalignments to open up nerve flow so the body can heal.

Does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic is very effective for a host of conditions.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Some people need only 1 while others need a series of treatments. Everybody is different and heals at different rates.

What does a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractors believe that a balanced body can heal itself. People use chiropractic to help with digestion, energy levels, mood, aches, pains, blood pressure, and immune system!

How does a chiropractor help lower back pain?

How does a chiropractor help neck pain?

We look for unbalanced muscles related to the neck and align the spine to open up nerve flow to the neck for optimal self-healing.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Chiropractic has been proven to be very safe!

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

Some people pop a lot and others don’t pop at all, it actually doesn’t have anything to do with your body healing and plenty of people get outstanding results without ever popping. Of course, if your joints do pop it feels wonderful!

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

Some patients get adjusted by hand and some get adjusted by instruments that don’t pop or crack joints. It all depends on your body and your preference.

Will a chiropractic adjustment completely remove back pain?

Some people do experience a complete resolution of pain.

Can I learn to adjust myself?

We never recommend anyone try to adjust themselves as the levels of the spine we adjust are specific and based on our chiropractic evaluation. Typically when someone adjusts themselves they feel relief for a moment but there’s no long-term healing benefit as there is with an adjustment from a trained professional.

Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?


Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Children respond incredibly well to chiropractic care. Of course, their adjustments can be much different than an adult’s adjustment due to their smaller size.
