FAQS · About Chiropractic

Who Should Go To A Chiropractor?
It depends on who you ask. For example, if you asked a person who was relieved of migraines he’d say, "Anyone with migraines should see a doctor of chiropractic." A child who no longer wets his bed will say, "Chiropractic is for bed-wetting." "Anyone with menstrual problems should go," says a woman who suffered from menstrual cramps. Someone saved from back or disc surgery would say chiropractic is for people with spine, back or neck problems.

There are case histories of people recovering from nearly every known disease and condition under chiropractic care: heart trouble, hyperactivity, fatigue, allergy, digestive problems, colds, flu, infertility and hundreds of other conditions.

You may be surprised to learn that doctors of chiropractic do not treat migraines or bed-wetting or menstrual cramps or backaches or the flu or high fevers or any other disease. The goal of the doctor of chiropractic is to awaken your own natural healing ability by correcting the vertebral subluxation complex, one of the deadliest, most destructive blockages of life and energy you can suffer from.

By correcting the vertebral subluxation complex, your doctor of chiropractic promotes natural healing, vitality, strength and health.

That’s why, if you’d go into the waiting room of a doctor of chiropractic you’d probably see people with many kinds of health problems yet they are there for one thing only, to have their vertebral subluxations corrected, not to have their diseases treated.

Having a healthy spinal column makes good common sense. If you’re sick, you should go to strengthen your natural healing ability. If you’re feeling fine, you should remember that vertebral subluxations are painless silent killers. You and your family should get your spines checked periodically to make sure you’re living free from hidden vertebral subluxations so you’re functioning at your fullest. Why wait for disease to happen before you begin to improve your health?

Should I go to a chiropractor if I’m suffering from a disease?
Absolutely! Chiropractic care will help turn on your body’s natural healer and improve your self-healing ability. You’ll be better able to fight whatever disease or condition you’re suffering from.

Can I go if I’m under medical care?
Yes. Having your vertebral subluxations corrected is important no matter what other type of care you’re receiving. You can have your spinal column checked for vertebral subluxations by a doctor of chiropractic and still visit a doctor of homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy or medicine. M.D.s and other healers cannot tell if you’re suffering from vertebral subluxations and are not trained in correcting them.

What Techniques Do You Use?
Our techniques include:
  • Gonstad
    A more specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments.
  • Diversified
    The most common non-specific technique used by most general practice chiropractors. It is a technique which may utilize more than one method but will involve spinal adjustment.
  • Activator
    The chiropractor uses an instrument called an Activator to make your adjustment. It is a small hand held impact tool in which a quick snap is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern.
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family carrying the vertebral subluxation complex in your spines? Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.

Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality of the air food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation —a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.

Chiropractic is now the largest non-medical healing art in the world, attracting millions of people each year: housewives and movie stars, scientists and businessmen, lawyers and laborers, infants and the elderly, professional athletes and "weekend warriors" all come seeking the unique services that only a doctor of chiropractic can provide.

But millions of sick, suffering and dying people, perhaps living on painkillers and other drugs, or facing surgery, have never tried chiropractic care even though help maybe literally around the corner.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a very simple concept. Nerves flow from the brain, down the spine, out to every part of our body. When the spine is properly aligned, all of the parts that these nerves flow to have good communication with the brain. Thus, the parts function at 100%. When there is a disturbance in the flow of communication between the brain and its corresponding parts, those parts do not function at 100%. Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.

What is Chiropractic Biophysics?
Chiropractic Biophysics® (CBP®) is a specialty within the chiropractic profession that focuses specifically on the analysis and restoration of the Essential Spinal Curves using state of the art, scientifically proven methods of adjusting, exercising, and stretch therapy. CBP® is unique within the profession because it is the only specialty proven to restore the structure of the spine (posture) to within normal limits. CBP® was founded upon principles of mathematics and engineering to determine how abnormal loads and stresses effect the spine and nervous system and how abnormal postures can be permanently corrected through the application of specific forces and exercises to the muscles and ligaments of the spine.

"Posture has been shown to affect and moderate every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are the functions most easily influenced by posture” (AJPM).

The maintenance of ideal spinal curves is vital to eliminating pain and increasing longevity, quality of life and ultimately, optimal health and well-being.

Chiropractors, also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the bodyís muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine. Interference with these systems impairs the bodyís normal functions and lowers its resistance to disease. Spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system. Skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain. Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the bodyís inherent recuperative abilities. In many cases, a patientís difficulties can be traced to the involvement of musculoskeletal structures; usually spinal subluxations are at the root of the problem. Chiropractors adjust the spinal column to correct these subluxations. This helps to correct the structural and functional problems with the patients joints and nervous system.
