What is a chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a doctor who has specialized training in the spine and nervous system. Doctors of chiropractic help patients realize total health by establishing a “balance from within”. They do this by providing a unique service called an “adjustment”. They address the most common cause of “dis-ease” today, the vertebral subluxation. Research shows that this care keeps people out of the hospital, off of needless drugs and helps them avoid surgery.

Are chiropractors doctors?

Of course, doctors of chiropractic are real doctors. The education of today’s D.C. or doctor of chiropractic is comparable to that of your ordinary doctor (M.D.). Doctors of chiropractic have more classroom hours in courses like anatomy and radiology than medical doctors. Research shows that chiropractic allows people to avoid drugs, surgery, and stay out of the nursing home. If you’re looking for a way to be and stay healthy, call a doctor of chiropractic first, then attempt drugs which have side effects. The last thing to try would be surgery, because it is dangerous.

What does a chiropractor do?

Does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works, it gets results and that’s what counts. Doctors of chiropractic help people who have been everywhere else and tried everything else. They help the most difficult cases. Many people visit chiropractors and leave wondering, “why didn’t come here first?” They often say “why didn’t someone tell me about chiropractic?”

Are there chiropractic adjustment side effects?

Yes, in some cases people will notice a “soreness” that goes away over time. It’s not hard to imagine that just like going to a gym, new movements can cause soreness. Over time these pains go away naturally as the body comes into proper alignment. People who notice these symptoms do very well. It’s important to let your doctor of chiropractic know how you’re feeling, so that you can get your spine and nervous system corrected over time.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Doctors of chiropractic allow you to choose how long you want to stay well. By getting adjusted on a regular basis, you maximize your potential for better life and health.

There is no real formula for determining how many adjustments it will take to fully correct your spine. Doctors and scientists base it on age. The average 40-year-old needs about 40 adjustments to correct their spine. Of course, there are many other factors to determine care like; previous trauma, disease, stress, genetic factors, exercise, and diet, etc.

How long you wish to enjoy chiropractic is up to you.

You can even keep your shoes on. Your chiropractor will protect your modesty and allow you to relax in order to enjoy the best results.

How does a chiropractor help people with lower back pain?

Chiropractors are famous for helping people with lower backpain. Step number one of course is to take a careful history, not all back pain is the same. Finally, you’ll be able to tell someone about what you’ve been going through that can understand your problem. An examination will follow, with x-rays if they are indicated. What’s most important and extremely helpful, is the chiropractic adjustment, that can provide significant relief. Of course, therapeutic exercises and therapy in the form of massage, ice or heat may be offered to help “hold” the adjustment.

How does a chiropractor help neck pain?

Neck pain is never normal. Your neck shouldn’t hurt. If it does, see your family chiropractor right away! Tell the doctor exactly how it feels. Of course, he or she will want to know additional information like;

What caused it?
Where is the pain exactly?
Does it radiate to the arm or back?
How exactly does it feel?
What makes the pain worse?
What helps alleviate the pain?
How long has it been going on? Etc.

A careful examination of the movements of the neck will follow, along with orthopedic and nerve tests and possible X-rays. Later, safe, gentle adjustments may be provided to root out the cause of the condition. The adjustments may be provided by hand or sometimes instrumently. Either way, you can be assured they are very safe.
