Frequently Asked Questions

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?

Yes. A New Zealand government inquiry found that chiropractic adjustments are "remarkably safe:' A thorough examination helps identify the rare individual for whom chiropractic care might not be suited. Compare the statistics. Adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking a common, over-the-counter pain reliever.

What Makes the Popping Sound?

Special fluids lubricate each spinal joint. Some adjusting methods can produce a sound as the gas and fluids in the joint shift-like releasing the pressure in a bottle of champagne. The sound, if it occurs, is fascinating, but isn't a guide to the quality or effectiveness of an adjustment.

What Does Chiropractic Cure?

Chiropractic doesn't cure anything! Nor is it a treatment for disease. If there's going to be any curing, your body will do it. Not doctors. And certainly not drugs. The best doctors reduce what is interfering and may be preventing your body from expressing its inborn healing capacity. That's why chiropractors are interested in the nervous system. With a revived nerve supply, your self-healing abilities are unleashed.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing organism controlled and regulated by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm whether your body is working as it should.

Improved motion or position of the moving bones of the spine may interfere with this vital exchange by irritating new nerves and the tissues they control. Precise chiropractic adjustments are intended to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.

What Does an Adjustment Feel Like?

Adjustments feel good! Many patients report a sense of well-being and a calming sense of ease. Repeated adjustments are often necessary, and if adjustments weren't comfortable, patients wouldn't return. Chiropractors excel at making spinal adjustments comfortable and effective.
