Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it safe to undergo an adjustment?

    Absolutely. Studies have found that chiropractic adjustments are surprisingly safe, including one conducted by the government in New Zealand. The track record for spinal care through chiropractic adjustments is fantastic, and you will of course be examined beforehand to ensure your candidacy.
  • I’ve heard that chiropractic adjustments can “loosen” the spine. Is this true?

    This is false. Chiropractic adjustments can be highly targeted to only modify the joints which require treatment. Muscles and ligaments nearby will heal in the event that they become weakened.
  • How many appointments are necessary?

    Since everyone’s anatomy and health goals are different, this can vary from one person to the next. It’s possible that your situation may only require a few weeks worth of appointments, but for more severe cases, an individual may need to receive chiropractic care for years.
  • What are the benefits of chiropractic adjustments for newborns?

    Just like anyone else, an infant’s spine can be affected from the environment or even during the birthing process. Spinal distress can be the cause of many common infantile problems, including unusual amounts of crying, colic, or strange sleeping patterns. Chiropractic adjustments for newborns are, of course, exceedingly gentle.
  • Is it possible to conduct an adjustment on myself?

    No—it’s not the same and in many cases can be dangerous. Chiropractic adjustment is a specific process which requires extensive study and mastery.
  • What will it feel like during my adjustment?

    During the adjustment itself, many patients experience pleasant sensations. Chiropractic adjustment can often feel good during or after the procedure.
  • I have osteoporosis. Am I still eligible for an adjustment?

    Yes. After your initial consultation, your doctor will help you develop a care plan that’s tailored to your specific anatomy and health goals.
  • I think it’s probably normal to have some back pain. Is this true?

    Pain is the body’s way of alerting you to a problem. In the event that you’re experiencing pain in your back, whether it is minor or extreme, a problem may have developed and a chiropractic adjustment can help to correct it—or it may get worse.
  • I’ve had back surgery. Am I still eligible for an adjustment?

    Absolutely, and in fact, it may be highly beneficial for your overall health and sense of well being. A chiropractic professional knows how to avoid the areas of your back which had surgery and focus on the other areas which may have been affected from it.
