Chiropractic Frequently Asked Questions

Thank you in advance for taking the time to discover chiropractic and its powerful effects on human health. Each year more than 15 million Americans choose chiropractic for safe, natural and effective relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, poor overall health, low energy levels and much more.


What is Chiropractic?

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."


Do You Only Treat Back & Neck Injuries?
No. While a majority of chiropractic work involves the elimination of back and neck pain, that is not our only goal. Our objective is to restore and optimize the functionality and health of your entire body. This includes adjusting elbows, wrists, ankles, knees, and other joints impacted by misalignment.

What Do Chiropractors Do
?
Chiropractors check each patient's spine for any misalignments, fixations or other abnormalities (vertebral subluxations). If subluxations or other abnormalities are detected, the chiropractor will generally apply a gentle force in a corrective manner to the affected spinal area. In addition to spinal adjustment techniques, dietary & nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and lifestyle modification programs are commonly employed.


Why Chiropractic Instead of Medical Doctors?
There is a significant and very important difference between the way chiropractors and medical doctors approach health ailments.

When evaluating and treating patients, chiropractors take a holistic approach which includes identifying and correcting the causes of the patient's health problems. In contrast, the medical approach tends to focus more on the treating the symptoms of a condition rather than focusing primarily on the actual causes.
