Why don’t chiropractors prescribe medication?
Chiropractors don’t believe in masking the symptoms of pain, rather they address the root cause of the problem through postural correction techniques, adjustments and exercises.
Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
Of course. An adjustment is merely a gentle realignment of misaligned vertebrae, helping the nervous system function normally again. Adjustments are often pain-free and result in immediate feeling of relief. Of course with any adjustment, a “cracking” sound can be heard. This is completely normal and expected.
What’s the typical length of treatment?
It all depends. Minor spinal misalignments can be corrected in a few short visits, while more significant postural issues take months. The doctor can provide a more specific timeline based on your exact needs.
Can chiropractic help with organ function?
Yes. The misconception is that chiropractors are only back and neck doctors. The reality is that chiropractors address all symptoms through opening nerve flow blockages caused by misalignments, and in the process promote proper organ function. As a result of chiropractic care, many patients have reported significant relief from acid reflux, asthma, allergies, heart palpitations, hypertension, fibromyalgia, and even improvements in vision.
Are there side effects to chiropractic care?
None. Correcting you posture and helping your nervous system function optimally can only be beneficial to your body and overall health. And because chiropractors do not use drugs such as painkillers, there are absolutely no side effects whatsoever.
