FAQ’S About Chiropractic Care
If you’re new to the world of chiropractic care you may find yourself with a lot of basic questions. Chiropractic is one of those subjects that everyone has an opinion on, even if they don’t always truly know the facts.
For many people, finding the right chiropractor to help with their pain can be a lifesaver. Whether used as a first-line treatment or as a component to a holistic pain management plan, Chiropractic care has been demonstrated to be effective for a variety of conditions.
FAQ’s About Chiropractic
- Question. How does chiropractic work?
Answer. Chiropractic works by building up your own body’s ability to be healthy. With the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect and help eliminate interferences to your natural state of being healthy.
- Question. What is an adjustment?
Answer. A chiropractic adjustment, or spinal manipulation, is a procedure where a specially trained Doctor of Chiropractic uses their hands, a small instrument or a specialized table to apply a controlled force to a certain area of the body. Regular adjustments correct spinal alignment and boost your body’s efficiency and proper function.
- Question. Can you see a Chiropractor while pregnant?
Answer. Any time is an acceptable time for a better functioning nerve system. Pregnant mothers find that chiropractic adjustments help with pregnancy discomforts, like sciatica, improve their pregnancy and can also make delivery easier for themselves and their baby. Certain chiropractic techniques can also be used to help properly position the baby for delivery.
- Question. What is the cracking and popping noise when being adjusted?
Answer. Adjustments do not always produce a sound, however, adjustments or manipulation of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints. This is what makes the popping sound, similar to when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal if any, discomfort involved.
- Question. Can you see a Chiropractor if you have had back surgery?
Answer. Yes. It’s a fact that unfortunately more than half of those who had spinal surgery recognize a return of their original symptoms months or years later. Chiropractic may help prevent repeated back surgeries. In fact, if chiropractic care is used initially, back surgery can often be originally bypassed in the first place.
- Question. How long will I have to go to a Chiropractor?
Answer. Ultimately, how long you see your chiropractor for is entirely up to you. A chiropractor may provide acute, chronic, and/or preventive care, making a certain number of visits sometimes necessary. Often during your first consultation with a chiropractor, they will provide you with a proposed treatment plan to outline your care. In order to obtain the best long term results, a series of treatments are typically recommended.
