Frequently Asked Questions:
Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
Will adjustments make my spine too loose?
How many adjustments will I need?
Patients often feel a relief after the first few adjustments. In the beginning, the treatments are usually more frequent (first 2 visits are usually within a week of each other) but this usually becomes far less frequent as the condition stabilizes.
Why would a newborn get adjusted?
Unusual crying, colic, poor appetite or erratic sleep patterns may all be signs of spinal misalignment.
Adjustments given to a baby are very gentle and involves no more pressure than one would use to test the ripeness of a tomato.
It is knowing exactly where and how to apply that pressure that achieves the correction safely and effectively.
Can I adjust myself?
Adjustments are specific and take years to master. Even a chiropractor has to consult another chiropractor to get his/her back adjusted.
Isn’t some back pain normal?
Now, you can relieve the pain by numbing it with medication, but if a problem isn’t resolved, the underlying problem may get worse and become more problematic to correct later on.
Not every ache and pain needs to be seen as the body is pretty resilient and self-healing, but pain that tends to stay for extended periods or comes back periodically, probably needs to be looked at.
Can I have chiropractic care after back surgery?
The areas above and below the surgery often compensate for the alteration and having these areas adjusted often brings tremendous relief.
The type of treatment will also be catered to the condition being treated. Many of these techniques are very gentle.
