Frequently Asked Questions

How many visits will it take to reduce Pain?
Some people experience almost immediate relief. Others find it can take many visits. Different factors can influence the healing process. The length of time you have had your problem? How often do you have appointments? Do you get proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Most patiants cansee results in a reasonable amount of time to justify our recomendations.

What about people that only need one visit?
There is a few instances in were a single visit can produce the pain relieving results a patient is looking for. Although, the results are normaly short term. It takes several visits to retrain muscles and soft tissues to stay in place. Patiants that wait until they are adults often have considerable structural and functional damage. A single “wonder” adjustment hardly ever produce lasting change


Why not just take some pain relievers?
We do not prescribe drugs of any kind. Pain relievers and most common over-the-counter pain medications fall short on two counts. They do not fix the core cause of your problem. Almost all drugs create side effects, which can lead to unhealthy results.

If I'm pregnant can I visit the Chiropractor?
Mothers who are adjusted during pregancy seem to require less intervention. Chiropractic care can aid you and your baby in achieving a healthier pregnancy and delivery. The health benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women have been demonstrated in many clinical studies. One of the studies, conducted by Irvin Henderson, M.D., a member of the American Medical Association board of trustees, it was shown that women who received chiropractic adjustments in their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver children with more comfort. In another, well-known orthopedist Per Freitag, M.D. conducted a hospital study that incorporated chiropractic adjustments during the patient’s pregnancy. It was found that the need for painkillers during delivery was reduced by half.
