FAQ's

Is Chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic is among the safest of the healing arts. As proof, one merely has to compare malpractice rates between Chiropractors and other health professionals. Chiropractic malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors, especially orthopedists and surgeons.

What makes that ‘popping’ sound?

The ‘popping’ noise noticed during adjustments is merely carbon dioxide and nitrogen gas releasing from within the fluid of the joint. This painless noise also releases natural pain killers, Endorphins and Enkephalins, into the adjusted area.

Can Chiropractors prevent back surgery?

In a majority of cases, the answer is a resounding “YES.”

Can a person who had back surgery see a Chiropractor?

YES. It’s an unfortunate fact that half of those who had spinal surgery discover a return of their original symptoms, months or years later and face the prospect of additional surgery. This too-common occurrence is known as “Failed Surgery Syndrome.” Chiropractic may help prevent repeated operations.

How often should I get a spinal adjustment?

The answer is “as soon as you develop spinal nerve stress.” But since spinal nerve stress is often painless, it’s good to get your spine checked periodically as you get your teeth checked periodically for “painless” cavities.

Your Spine
Spine and Nervous System

Chiropractors are often called "back doctors." Actually, they have nothing to do with the back itself! They work on the spinal column -- one of the most important and complex components of the human nervous system.

The human body is a remarkable thing. At any given moment, it performs hundreds of thousands of individual functions -- circulating and purifying blood, turning fuel into energy, maintaining proper internal temperature, taking in oxygen, and many other operations which keep us alive and healthy.

Guided by the knowledge our bodies are born with -- our Innate Intelligence -- every cell and organ sends and receives messages to and from the brain. In fact, the brain acts like a central communication depot, processing millions of messages every second. These messages, relayed as electrical impulses, are sent out over nerves the way phone calls travel along telephone wires.

A thick braid formed by billions of these nerves is attached to the brain and extends down from the base of the skull. This is the spinal cord. Smaller braids branch off from the cord. These braids divide again and again into tiny nerve fibers and fill the entire body, going to each cell, organ and tissue. Every human being has an estimated 15 billion nerve cells. All send and receive messages as nerve impulses through the spinal cord. It's clear that the brain and spinal cord are critical to the survival and health of the individual. Protecting them is absolutely vital and when the body can no longer function at 100% of its capacity - that's where chiropractic comes in.
