Everyone responds to care differently. Some patient care plans are short, others take longer. There are many factors that affect a patient’s response to care such as age, history of accidents, level of activity, and past injuries.
Will Chiropractic care hurt?
“Do no harm” is the motto of Chiropractors. Occasional soreness during or after treatments is sometimes expected. This is normally short-lived and followed by continued improvement of the patient’s condition.
Will I need surgery or drugs to help my pain?
The goal of Chiropractic care is the assist the body in healing itself without the need of drugs or surgery. Your body functioning at 100% is more powerful than any drug or doctor in the world. You and your chiropractor can set yourself in this direction. Not all patients have chiropractic problems and your Chiropractor will let you know if a referral to another physician will be needed.
What is the “crack”?
Many people are nervous that a Chiropractor will “crack” their neck or back thanks to decades of Chuck Norris movies. A Chiropractor ADJUSTS joints to help your body function at its fullest. Sometimes when an adjustment happens a joint is stretched and a “crack” sounds happens. This sound is just the pressure of the joint equalizing to the stretch. Not all adjustments are “cracks” and not all “cracks” are adjustments. If you are nervous about that sound or feeling let your chiropractor know. Most chiropractors use many methods that don’t involve audibles.
