5. Shouldn't I see if my body will heal on its own before rushing to a Chiropractor?
Unfortunately, in most cases, waiting can make your condition worse. Affected muscles can weaken, atrophy, become tight or spasm. Swelling or inflammation can occur and may cause delicate tissue to tear or degenerate. Soft tissues may suffer permanent damage. Sometimes bone spurs or other bony growths may occur.
6. What is subluxation? How does a Chiropractor treat it?
Vertebral subluxation complex is what happens when spinal bones lose their normal motion or position due to stress, trauma or chemical imbalances. A Chiropractor uses a series of safe adjustments, stretches, exercises, heat or ice to restore normal spinal function. It is a carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position or motion. Chiropractors receive years of training to become experts at using the right amount of force in the right direction.
7. Do you have to adjust my neck?
Your chiropractic adjustments will vary depending on the treatment needed. If you prefer not to have your neck adjusted, it may be possible to complete your treatment without this type of adjustment. Please talk with a Chiropractor in our clinic about your concerns on your first visit.
