Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a healthcare specialty that focuses on musculoskeletal system disorders, the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on your general health.


Chiropractors are specially trained in using their hands to manipulate the spine, improve spinal motion, and improve your body’s overall physical functioning. Chiropractic adjustments are most commonly used for back pain, neck pain, arm and leg joint pain, and headaches.


Is chiropractic care safe?

When performed by a trained and licensed chiropractor, chiropractic care is safe. As with any medical procedure, chiropractic care has extremely rare, but serious, potential complications associated with it, including:

  • Worsening of existing disk herniation
  • Creation of a herniated disk
  • Nerve compression in the lower spinal column
  • Stroke after neck manipulation

 

Your chiropractor will review your medical history, symptoms, and sometimes take images before deciding if chiropractic care is a safe option for your needs.


Is chiropractic care right for me?

While chiropractic care offers pain relief for many people, you should not seek chiropractic adjustments if you have any of the following:


  • Loss of strength in arm or leg
  • Numbness or tingling in arm or leg
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Increased risk of stroke
  • Bone abnormality in your upper neck
  • Spine cancer


Be sure to discuss all medical conditions and symptoms when visiting the Alternative Health & Healing Center for the first time so the doctor can determine if chiropractic care is right for you.


What should I expect at the chiropractor?

Your chiropractor will determine if you’re the right candidate for chiropractic care at your initial appointment. If they deem you so, your next visit will involve chiropractic adjustments.


During your adjustment, your doctor will position you on the padded table and use his or her hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to joints in the affected areas. The force pushes the joint beyond the normal range of motion, and you may hear a cracking or popping sound. 


Most people require a series of visits to experience results, with an average of six to ten treatment sessions for maximum improvement.
