  Common Questions About Chiropractic

  1. Q - Why can't I just get adjusted once?

  2. A - Correcting the problem subluxation requires a series of specific, gentle adjustments to the spine in order to "train" the nerve system and structures back toward a healthier position and function. The body's tissues have a "memory". Because subluxations typically develop and worsen over time, this unhealthy "memory" must now be "reprogrammed" in order to get a positive and lasting result. This correction process is much like wearing braces on teeth. The correction in this case however results in a healthier spine and nerve system, not just a prettier smile.

  3. Q - Do I have to get adjusted forever?
    A - Only as long as you want the benefits. Just as with working-out, regardless of an individual's fitness level, they must continue to put in the time and effort training to maintain and / or increase their fitness level. If at any time they quit working-out, they simply lose what they've gained over time. The same is true with chiropractic, and anything in our lives of value for that matter, the benefits of chiropractic care are yours as long as it is part of your life.

  4. Q - What causes Subluxation?
    A - The causes of subluxation are the obvious things: sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls…etc. Less obvious, and far more commonly, subluxations can be caused by the cumulative effects of our bad habits: poor posture, unhealthy sleeping positions and especially - positions in the work place. Research from Pediatric and Developmental Chiropractic is showing that the most common first spinal trauma, and therefore the first cause of subluxation, is the birth process and the delivery itself.

  5. Q - Do you feel Subluxation?
    A - Subluxation is a degenerative problem. Therefore it starts silently and evolves into a weakness that we may aggravate or "tweak". This leads to increased swelling and nerve pressure until a thresh hold of tolerance is crossed and we experience some type of symptom, or warning signal from the body. These body signals tend to occur well into the development of this problem. Symptoms of nerve pressure and dysfunction may include weakness, restlessness, tingling or numbness, organ dysfunction, asthma, allergies, stomach problems, bowel problems, ear or sinus problems and eventually some type of pain syndrome or crisis. Symptoms typically occur at the end of a problem, not at the beginning. As with teeth, cholesterol, and heart problems, it is never wise to wait for the symptoms associated with crisis. Have your spine and nerve system checked proactively.

  6. Q - How old do you have to be to receive chiropractic adjustments?
    A - Many parents choose to have their newborn's spine and nerve system checked the day of the delivery. In Australia, chiropractors are commonly part of the delivery team, checking babies immediately following the birth. We see many children in our practice every day. Informed parents know that the causes of subluxation in children include sports injuries, falls, posture in school, heavy backpacks, sleep positions, and especially in utero-constraint and the birth process and delivery.

  7. Q - What if I have osteoporosis?
    A - Chiropractors see an enormous range of patients. From adjusting newborns to the elderly, exacting protocols and techniques are always practiced by expert chiropractors. Appropriate modifications in adjusting techniques are made to assure the safest and most effective care available. Amazingly, these two populations seem to get the greatest benefit from chiropractic. The very young respond so well because their issues are typically not long-standing. The elderly love chiropractic because they are thrilled that you can help them without giving them more pills to take.
