WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?2024-03-19T23:26:05+06:00

The word Chiropractic means done by hand. That is true for how my chiropractic adjustment is performed. I most commonly perform adjustments with using my hands to move through the joints of the spine, although I can use instrument adjustment with an activator upon request or desire of the patient. One of the goals of chiropractic is to increase range of motion in the joints of the spine or extremities while also reducing pain and irritation at the same time. Chiropractic also reduces compression on the nervous system which allows your bodies ability to heal itself and resume normal function.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I RECEIVE A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?2024-03-19T23:25:16+06:00

For most patients, monthly wellness adjustments are recommended. For patients in active pain, more adjustments are required until the pain subsides. Each patient will receive an individualized treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

CAN I RECEIVE CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY?2024-03-19T23:24:21+06:00

Yes, pregnant women can benefit greatly from regular chiropractic adjustments. A pregnancy pillow, light force adjusting and an activator are used throughout a pregnancy.

WHAT AGES CAN RECEIVE CHIROPRACTIC CARE?2024-03-19T23:23:26+06:00

We treat patients young and old.

WHAT CAUSES THE POPPING SOUND DURING AN ADJUSTMENT?2024-03-19T23:22:26+06:00

The popping sound is gas moving through the joint as it gets adjusted and does not hurt. The sound is beneficial because it will improve joint mobility and lubrication within the joint. However, a popping noise does not need to occur for the adjustment to have occurred.

WHAT SYMPTOMS CAN CHIRPRACTIC TREAT?2024-03-19T23:21:35+06:00

Chiropractic can treat several conditions. Including but not limited to stiff or achy joints, headaches, numbness or tingling down and arm or leg, whiplash, disc injuries ie: disc bulges or herniations with our spinal decompression table. With our x-ray equipment we are able to evaluate for fractures, dislocations, or more serious issues that can be detected. Chiropractic can treat several conditions. Chiropractic manipulative therapy can be also effective in treating chronic sinusitis. Poor posture can create a curvature of the spine, therefore pinching key nerves and causing issues such as back pain, fatigue in back or legs. Poor posture can be caused by a variety of things such as obesity, discitis, a slipped vertebrae, osteoporosis or kyphosis causing a hump or curve to the upper back and leaning to one side.

ARE THERE SIDE AFFECTS FROM AN ADJUSTMENT?2024-03-19T23:19:54+06:00

The majority of adjustments are symptom free. However, it is possible to experience minor discomfort or soreness after an adjustment.

WHAT OTHER TREATMENTS OTHER THAN ADJUSTMENT DO YOU OFFER?2024-03-19T23:18:53+06:00

In addition to adjustments, spinal decompression, therapeutic ultrasound, x-rays and nutritional supplement advice are offered.

WHAT TECHNIQUE DO YOU USE?2024-03-19T23:17:53+06:00

Diversified technique or tradtional chiropractic technique- This technique involves moving the joints of the spine or extremities manually with my hands. I use quick movements with some pressure that can produce a small pop sound when gas moves through the joints.
Activator adjustments – A small handheld tool is used to move the joints to increase range of motion. No popping is felt or heard and you will stay facedown on the table during treatment.
Spinal Decompression – This thechnique is primarly used to treat a disc bulge or hearination. This technique will make a negative pressure in the disc to rehydrate the disc and take mechanical pressure off of the nerve as it exits the spine. Our version of spinal decompression is applied while I am working with you to stretch the low back or neck area. It feels like a nice deep stretch.
