Lower back pain can be caused for a number of reasons, from injury to aging and everything in-between. It is important to know that the spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae, which is made up from bone. You will also find soft discs that are fully designed to protect the bone while also absorbing shock, but a lot of back problems occur when the discs degenerate and bulge out of the vertebrae, pushing down on the nerves and causing pain.
Chiropractic is based on the understanding that your health depends on the functionality of your system. It also means “treatment by hand” and it looks to address any diseases or issues that may be impacting your movement and your overall health. Chiropractic care often avoids the use of drugs and other chemicals by instead locating and adjusting the musculoskeletal areas in the body, naturally relieving pain.
This happens when one, or in some instances more, of your spinal bones are misaligned. This interferes with your nervous system and the body’s ability to heal itself.
Chiropractic care is normally designed for those who experience lower back pain, but it has been effective in treating neck pain, shoulder pain and even back pain.
An adjustment is a thrust that is delivered by a hand. This is designed to correct any subluxations that are affecting your health.
Not at all, in fact, they may even feel great. When you begin to receive your adjustments, there is a high chance that you will look forward to them and you’ll feel so much better afterwards as well.
The cracking or popping sound is not your spine, contrary to popular belief. It is actually gas that rushes into the space when your joints are separated. Not all chiropractic techniques produce this noise and most don’t produce it at all.
This is a question that a lot of people ask. If you have the desire to crack your neck then there is a chance that a part of your spine is jammed, causing another area to move too much, thus leading to the crack or pop. You may feel better after doing so, but chances are the need to crack will come back because you are not adjusting it properly, because only a chiropractor can do this. If you do crack/pop your neck a lot, please do come in to see us, even a chiropractor cannot adjust their neck themselves and we’d be more than happy to help.
Yes. Chiropractic adjustments are completely safe.
When a child is born, they often experience subluxations. The spine of an infant is very soft and somewhat undeveloped and during the birth, it can suffer trauma. In fact, your baby may experience over 80lb of pulling pressure as it exits the birth canal, and when they grow up, the injury done to their spine increases. This is because they learn how to walk, jump, twist, bump, run and crawl, and over time this can cause some real damage. Some children won’t show signs of being subluxated until later life, but chiropractic care can help to give them a more responsive body and a more balanced flow of energy as well.
Our chiropractors have a very high level of education that focuses on neuromuscular treatments. They also have training in the anatomy, biology, theoretical studies, diagnosis, clinical training and so much more.
Not at all, we a have a physician on-hand and they can issue you with prescriptions.
Our physical therapy clinic is the perfect environment if you want to nourish and heal your body, your mind and your soul. When you come and visit us for the very first time, we will give you an evaluation over your entire body. This will include your posture, range of motion and your joint mobility as well. Upon doing this, we will then provide you with a treatment plan that will help you to get back on track with your day to day activities so you can feel better from the moment you come and pay us a visit.
Not at all, you benefit from it as much as you want to. We are all responsible for our own actions and the quality of our health, and by doing regular exercise with your treatments, you can be sure to feel healthier and better in no time at all.
Yes. Just because you don’t have any symptoms, doesn’t mean that your subluxations are okay. Sometimes some of our patients come in and they have spinal decay which has developed over a number of years. This is all down to the stress that you experience in your lifetime and the longer you wait before you get it checked out, the more risk you expose yourself to. Of course, it is completely up to you how and when you take chiropractic care sessions and it is also up to you if you decide to stop going to them or not, but if you do stop your sessions when you feel “fine”, you may find that you experience the same problems again at a later date. Those who come in and continue their sessions however experience far better results and they, in most cases, avoid additional trauma and stress.
With all medical treatments, there is always evidence that supports it and there have been several studies that show that chiropractic treatments are effective when it comes to relieving back pain. Some of the more recent studies have also shown that chiropractic treatment is effective in treating migraine headaches and infantile colic as well.
Try and wear loose fitting clothing that does not restrict your movement in any way. This will allow our therapists to get to the areas required when performing your treatment.
The first time you come and attend your session, you will need to bring your insurance card with you. We have a physician on-hand who can give you a prescription if this is required, so you really don’t have anything to worry about.
We accept most insurance policies and this does in fact include Medicare.
