Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline which emphasizes the inherent power of the body to heal itself. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the body’s structure ( the spine) and the body’s function ( coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship effects our health.

What do Doctors of Chiropractic do?

Your chiropractor is specifically trained to examine you for the presence of spinal misalignments called ‘vertebral subluxations’.  Your chiropractic doctor will use safe and effective spinal adjustments to correct proper spinal movement , correct your subluxations and remove nervous system interference. Doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility in working in cooperation with other health care practitioners for the best interest of the patient. Chiropractors are leaders in wellness care and know the value of nutrition, exercise, mental and spiritual health in addition to the physical care provided in the office. 

What training to they have?

Doctors of Chiropractic are required to have a minimum of four years post-secondary education prior to entering chiropractic college. Chiropractic colleges require completion of intensive study in the assessment, diagnosis and care of their patients. Total course hours are similar to medical school requirements. Chiropractic physicians pass national board exams and must be licensed by the regulating bodies in their state.

What is a subluxation?

The vertebral Subluxation Complex or ‘Subluxation’ is a dysfunction of the bones in your spine ( vertebra). This dysfunction compromises the normal functioning of your nerves and can cause pain and diminish your overall health and well being.

What happens when I have a subluxation?

Spinal misalignment – vertebral movement and function are altered although contact still remains between joint surfaces nerve dysfunction– Since your nervous system passes through your spine, subluxations will cause nerve irritation sometimes resulting in obvious nerve pain and symptoms but often time placing silent stress on your nerves, affecting the proper communication between your brain and the rest of your body. SOFT tissue dysfunction – Swelling and inflammation can occur. Surrounding soft tissue such as discs, ligaments and tendons can be damaged. MUSCLE dysfunction– Surrounding muscles can become tight, out of balance, sensitive or may even spasm. Overall efficiency and organization of the body’s energy is disrupted. OTHER general health changes– Left uncorrected, subluxations can lead to long term changes such as premature wear and tear in your spine, general lack of energy, compromised immune system function, and compromised function in general throughout the body.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment typically involves a specific force applied to a vertebra aimed at correcting spinal subluxations. The goal is to restore proper motion, improve spinal function and remove interference of the nervous system. There are many different techniques. Your chiropractor will determine what techniques are best for you.

Are adjustments safe?

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug free discipline therefore risk are extremely low Adverse events are extremely rare and your chiropractor will assess you for any risks before beginning care. Chiropractors are the most qualified professionals to perform spinal adjustments.

How long before I feel better?

Many patients will notice some instant relief following their first spinal adjustments while others will take longer to respond. There are various factors that affect the body’s response including length and severity of presenting concern along with other conditions, general health and lifestyle stressors and compliance to care instructions.

Why do I need an adjustment if I am not in pain?

It is important for you to know that spinal dysfunctional always happens before back pain or neck pain making most subluxations silent.

Your body also has a natural way of altering your mechanics to avoid pain when dysfunction is present which is a smart adaptation in the short term but not good in the long run if you do not correct the dysfunction.

Regular assessment of your spinal biomechanics and nervous system function by a chiropractor can help maintain and prevent dysfunction throughout your body.

Chiropractic works best as a wellness lifestyle choice for prevention and life vitality.
