Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
- Chiropractic Adjustments are the minor movements of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity such as poor posture, or trauma such as a car accident.
2. Is The Adjustment Painful?
- Not at all. The instance of receiving the adjustment is most often relaxing/relieving – similar to the therapeutic benefits of a massage. However, in some cases, you may experience post-adjustment soreness that may last from 1-3 days. This is why we recommend patients to apply cold compression (ice pack) on the areas of adjustment for the next few days.
3. What Chiropractic Methods Do We Utilize?
- We utilize the Gonstead System in our analysis and adjustments.
4. What is The Gonstead System?
- Gonstead procedures are the result of extensive clinical research by Clarence S.Gonstead, founder of the world-famous Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, and his associates. Doctor Gonstead’s fifty-five years of continuous practice and over four million chiropractic adjustments resulted in the most complete method of biomechanical analysis available for use by today’s doctors of chiropractic. So why don’t all chiropractors use this technique? Because the analysis takes more time and mastering the art of delivering a specific adjustment takes a LOT of practice and dedication.
5. At What Age Can I See a Chiropractor?
- Chiropractic is safe for all ages and may be considered essential due to the forces and trauma that our spine and joints face throughout the years. We are a family-based chiropractic practice that encourages the whole family to get checked as early as possible for vertebral subluxations.
6. What Are Vertebral Subluxations?
- The vertebral joints (spinal bones) can misalign and irritate the nerves. For your body to perform at its best, your brain must send and receive signals to and from your body via the spinal nerves. If there is an injury to the nervous system, it may cause tissues and organs in your body to malfunction. This would then cause a host of symptoms. If a person has a subluxation in the low back region, you may experience low back pain and/or constipation due to the dysfunction of the nerves in the low back region that supplies the bowel.
7. How Frequent Do I Need to Receive An Adjustment?
- The frequency of visits varies based on your occupation, age, gender, lifestyle choices, and degenerative changes that play a role in your body’s ability to heal. In most cases, we would recommend 2-4 weeks of intensive care. After solving their main complaints, most practice members return for routine visits ranging from 1-6 months apart. However, chiropractic is not a one-size-fits-all approach to health, and visits frequency varies from person to person.
8. Do I Need A Full Spine X-ray Before Getting Adjusted?
- YES. Due to the high specificity and precision work that we do, X-ray films would be necessary to look for :
Degenerative changes in the spine and joints.
Obtain important structural information that will guide the outcome of your adjustment visits.
Aid in identifying abnormal spinal lesions that may be contraindicated to chiropractic adjustments.
Allows you to better understand your condition and the treatment plan, allowing you to take ownership of the process and be more involved in the process of healing and recovery.
