When should I see a chiropractor?

Are you getting symptoms? Pain and symptoms are your body's way of telling you 'something is wrong!' Whilst it is most common for patients to present with symptoms, our job is to find and fix problems in the spine, even for people without symptoms.

What is a chiropractic adjustment

An adjustment is an extremely specific, controlled force to a joint that is misaligned and not moving correctly. This helps to return the joint to its normal function and reduce the irritation on the nervous system. For you, it means a reduction in pain or symptoms, improved spinal function, and a new level of health and wellness.

Do adjustments hurt?

This is one of the most common concerns of new patients who step into our clinic. Adjustments are fast and gentle to reduce discomfort and most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.

Occasionally, patients do report a mild soreness similar to having worked out the gym as the muscles adapt to the adjustment. This effect is temporary and healing can be promoted through the use of ice, drinking lots of water, and light stretching.

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

Just like how people 'crack' their knuckles, the sound is produced by your joint's change in pressure, releasing small pockets of air. However, the difference between a 'knuckle-pop' and an adjustment is that we focus on moving a joint in a very specific direction to return it to normal function.

Do I need an x-ray for a treatment?

An X-ray helps us determine the alignment of each and every joint, down to the millimeter. It gives us the chance to assess the health of your spine, and rule out any serious conditions such as cancers, fractures, and congenital defects. It is highly recommended to get an X-ray if you are over the age of 16.

Can I see a chiropractor when I am pregnant?

Pregnancy comes with increased stress on the body, especially the lower back. During this stage, chiropractic care is highly effective in easing pains associated with the pregnancy and make delivery easier. Treatment is tailored to the stage of pregnancy and the needs of the soon-to-be mother.

Can Chiropractic help babies

The birthing process is incredibly stressful on the body and spine, and gentle chiropractic care can help ensure babies' spines stay healthy as they grow. We will also check and monitor important growth milestones for your child based on his/her age to ensure they are on the right track.

Can I adjust myself?

Our focus with adjustments are misalignments that are ‘stuck’ and fixated. They require very precise adjustments to be corrected and are not in directions that can be self-performed. Those ‘cracks and pops’ that you hear when you try to self-adjust tend to be areas that are already moving more than they should and only offer temporary relief.

Are there many athletes who use chiropractic?

Many athletes take a lot of physical punishment to their bodies as they strive for excellence. Chiropractic helps to reduce the stresses on the body and nervous system, as well as return function to each and every joint. Rehabilitation exercises are paired with chiropractic care to prevent injury and enhance performance.
