What types of things do chiropractors treat?
Many people associate chiropractic care with pain in the neck and low back. Although we are very successful at helping people get out of pain in ANY body part, chiropractic is much more. Many people are surprised to learn that the first adjustment ever given caused the patient to regain his hearing!!! Since every body part receives a message from a nerve, adjustments can literally affect every cell, organ, and tissue. More importantly our goal is to make sure the WHOLE body is working properly and cohesively.
Does chiropractic treatment hurt?
No, not generally. There are certainly times when correction of a posture is uncomfortable, much like working out, or performing a strenuous task of which you are unaccustomed. However, every effort is made to work within your tolerance, to make as much change as possible, in as short a time as possible, with minimal discomfort. Many times, patients have had an abnormal posture for many years. When this is the case, the muscles, ligaments, and joints are accustomed to their current position. Changing that position is important, and at times uncomfortable. However, again I stress, never in such a way as to be intolerable to the patient.
Why do some people go to chiropractors over and over again? Someone told me once you go, you have to go forever.
By learning the fundamental truth that “structure determines function” they desire to have their structure as normal and healthy as possible. Once your posture is corrected, you may require (and often do) occasional checkups to insure you remain aligned normally. This is not such a foreign concept. Think of the people you know who have had their teeth aligned. More often than not, a “retainer” is required to maintain the new and healthy position of the teeth.
Ultimately, you decide what you want out of chiropractic care in my office. If you simply want to get rid of your pain without drugs or surgery, and as soon as you feel better, be done with your care, you may certainly choose this option. However, if you want to be as structurally sound as possible, you may choose to correct or improve your spine as much as possible, and then periodically be checked to be sure you are as good as can be.
Once corrected, many patients choose to continue supporting their health with periodic spinal adjustments. However, this choice is due to understanding the relationship between structure function, and optimal health.
Is a good workout the same as getting adjusted?
No. Exercise is an important part of good health, yet without normal spinal function a physical workout merely puts additional wear and tear on improperly functioning spinal joints.
