What You Thought You Knew about Chiropractic!!!!!

Did You Know…

  • that not all adjusting techniques make the popping sound?
Some create no sound at all, some a little. What causes it? The sound is air rushing in to fill the space created from minor separation of the joints.
  • that you cannot adjust yourself?
“Cracking” or “popping” your spine may give temporary relief but since you are not correcting the cause of the problem, the urge to pop or crack comes back. You may be causing more problems than by doing nothing at all!
  • that you cannot tell when you need to be adjusted?  
Even chiropractors need to be checked by other chiropractors! The condition that we look for is like a cavity in your teeth—it may be there for some time before you feel anything.
  • that after going through the birth process, babies’ little systems can have interference already?
Many parents of infants who have received chiropractic care have reported their child sleeping well, colic disappearing, asthma symptoms resolved, regular elimination…..many results that they have had no success with otherwise.
  • that you cannot “get addicted” to getting adjusted?
Are you addicted to exercise or brushing your teeth? What happens for most people is that they get used to feeling in balance, less stressed and having more energy. You may become more aware of what works and doesn’t work for your body.
  • that you can stop anytime? 
Your lifestyle stress will continue to build up in your body and you may experience a health crisis. Once you have been under care and realize how well you can function- most of our practice members choose a wellness program to have those benefits for a lifetime!
  • that chiropractic is different from massage?
Chiropractic deals primarily with the nervous system, spine and meningeal tissue. Massage therapists deal with muscles and lymphatic drainage.
  • that Chiropractic care is extremely safe?
Our malpractice insurance costs us a FRACTION of a Medical Doctor, orthopedist or neurosurgeon. As you know, rates are based on claims- think of your auto policy – more accidents, your rates go up! No accidents – better premiums.
  • that you can go to a chiropractor even if you have a medical doctor?
Yes! No matter what kind of healthcare you choose, chiropractic care does something unique that no other profession does! In fact, many medical doctors themselves are under chiropractic care.
  • that Chiropractors do not use medicine or surgery?
There are definitely times and places where emergency medical care is needed. We should not forget that proper lifestyle management is PARAMOUNT to the optimal functioning of the body and that if we choose to live consciously and healthfully that less medical care will be needed.
  • that even if you “feel fine” you should see a chiropractor?
Many different conditions exist before you feel them! A cavity in your tooth is a perfect example of this. Heart disease, cancer and diabetes take YEARS to develop- mostly with no symptoms! Subluxation is another of those conditions that degrade your function over time sometimes with very few symptoms. Why not check your nervous system just as you would go to your dentist for a check up!
  • that your frequency of adjustment may be different than someone else?
Everyone will need different care because we all have different life stresses. We never recommend any less care for you than we would give to our own families. The technology we use allows us to remove the guesswork and give you exactly the amount of care you need to remove subluxations and prevent the degradation of your nervous system.
