What is a chiropractic adjustment?

The chiropractic spinal adjustment is a means to access the nerve system in order to release Manhattan force, free stuck patterns, release stress and improve physiology. It returns to our body the potential to heal.

Are adjustments safe?

Yes! The USA government study found that adjustments are remarkably safe. By avoiding drugs and risky surgery, chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. A thorough exam can identify the rare person for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited. Compare the statistics. Adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.

Will adjustments make my spine too loose?

No. Only the spinal joints that are locked up receive adjustments. The occasional spinal joints that move too much, are passed over so weakened muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal.

How many adjustments will I need?

The number of adjustments varies with each practice member and their individual health goals. Many practice members sense some progress within a week or two of frequent visits. Visits are less often as your spine stabilizes. In difficult cases, complete healing can take months or even years.

Can practice members with osteoporosis get chiropractic care?

Yes.

Can I adjust myself?

No. Some people can make their joints pop but that's not an adjustment! Worse, damage can occur by mobilizing a joint with weakened muscles and ligaments. Adjustments are specific and take years to master. Even your chiropractic doctor must consult a colleague to benefit from chiropractic care.

What does an adjustment feel like?

Most practice members report a sense of well-being or a feeling of calmness. Since repeated adjustments are necessary, if adjustments didn't feel good, practice members wouldn't return to finish their care. Chiropractic doctors are expert at making adjustments feel good.

Isn't some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something isn't right. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem can slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.

Can I have chiropractic care after back surgery? 

Yes. Rest assured that we will avoid the surgically modified areas of your spine. Surgery often causes instability above or below the involved level. This will be the focus of your chiropractic care.

Why would a newborn get adjusted?

Even today's natural childbirth methods can affect an infant's spine. Colic, unusual crying, poor appetite or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Adjustments are gentle. Knowing exactly where to adjust, no more pressure than you'd use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.
