Frequently Asked Questions
Are Chiropractors licensed physicians?
Yes. Like other types of doctors, chiropractors meet stringent licensing requirements, follow a strict code of ethics, and are approved by government agencies.
Is chiropractic scientific?
Chiropractic is scientific. Specific technique protocols are used to locate malfunctioning areas of the spine. As sophisticated diagnostic equipment becomes more available, researchers are affirming what chiropractic doctors have known all along – chiropractic works!
How do adjustments work?
Chiropractic adjustments make sense. Like lifting a heavy rock off your toe, most patients report their chiropractic adjustment feels good. When the bones of the spine return to a more normal motion and position, nervous system function can be restored, symptoms relieved, and the natural healing process can proceed.
Do I have to be injured to get adjusted?
No. Like regular eye examinations, many patients decide to continue with some form of regular preventive or wellness chiropractic care after they have gotten better. Many athletes and performers use the benefits of chiropractic to enhance their performance and for injury prevention.
How long do I have to come for?
Continue as long as you want. Like regular dental checkups, once patients experience the value of chiropractic, many choose to continue. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
What are some facts about chiropractic?
The truth is chiropractic is a conservative, drug-free approach to better health that has helped millions of people since 1895.
