Frequently Asked Questions
Chiropractic focuses on the intimate relationship of the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic treatment can restore function to the spine and reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue leading to improved health.
Are you getting symptoms? Pain and symptoms are your body's way of telling you 'something is wrong!' Whilst it is most common for patients to present with symptoms, our job is to find and fix problems in the spine, even for people without symptoms.
An adjustment is an extremely specific, controlled force to a joint that is misaligned and not moving correctly. This helps to return the joint to its normal function and reduce the irritation on the nervous system.
For you, it means a reduction in pain or symptoms, improved spinal function and a new level of health and wellness.
This is one of the most common concerns of new patients who step into our clinic.
Adjustments are fast and gentle to reduce discomfort and most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.
Occasionally, patients do report a mild soreness similar to having worked out the gym as the muscles adapt to the adjustment. This effect is temporary and healing can be promoted through the use of ice, drinking lots of water and light stretching.
Chiropractic adjustments is widely recognised as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies for the treatment of most back and neck pain. Spinal adjustments are extremely safe when performed by well-trained, licensed Chiropractors.
Just like how people 'crack' their knuckles, the sound is produced by your joint's change in pressure, releasing small pockets of air. However, the difference between a 'knuckle-pop' and an adjustment is that we focus on moving a joint in a very specific direction to return it to normal function.
Back pain can become chronic if left untreated, but chiropractic care has been shown to ease and often completely eliminate back pain for many patients.
The focus of chiropractic care is to treat dysfunction within the spine which in many cases, reduces and removes back pain.
An X-ray helps us determine the alignment of each and every joint, down to the millimeter. It gives us the chance to assess the health of your spine, and rule out any serious conditions such as cancers, fractures and congenital defects.
It is highly recommended to get an X-ray if you are over the age of 16.
Pregnancy comes with an increased stress on the body, especially the lower back. During this stage, chiropractic care is highly effective in easing pains associated with the pregnancy and make delivery easier. Treatment is tailored to the stage of pregnancy and the needs of the soon-to-be mother.
The birthing process is incredible stressful on the body and spine, and gentle chiropractic care can help ensure babies spines stay healthy as they grow. We will also check and monitor important growth milestones for your child based on his/her age to ensure they are on the right track.
Our focus with adjustments are misalignments that are ‘stuck’ and fixated. They require very precise adjustments to be corrected and are not in directions that can be self-performed. Those ‘cracks and pops’ that you hear when you try to self-adjust tend to be areas that are already moving more than they should and only offer temporary relief.
Many athletes take a lot of physical punishment to their body as they strive for excellence. Chiropractic helps to reduce the stresses on the body and nervous system, as well as return function to each and every joint.
Rehabilitation exercises are paired with chiropractic care to prevent injury and enhance performance.
