How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic protects the integrity of the nervous system and activates the body’s natural healing ability. If your nervous system is functioning properly, then all cells, organs, and tissues of your body will function at their maximum potential as well. The human body is designed to resist and fight disease and illness. Chiropractic exams find and eliminate misalignments and subluxations, alleviating nerve interference.
Will my insurance cover treatment?
Every insurance company and policy is different. Call your insurance company to verify your benefits, or bring in your insurance card and we will verify your chiropractic benefits for you. Even if you don’t have insurance, we have affordable treatment plans that fit many budgets.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Although there is no treatment that is completely risk-free, spinal manipulation is generally recognized as the safest drug-free, non-invasive form of alternative care. There is a great deal of research providing evidence that chiropractic adjustments hold an extremely small risk. This is because chiropractic works using the body’s natural healing process and doesn’t interfere by using drugs or surgery. The proof lays in the difference a medical doctor pays in malpractice insurance in comparison to a chiropractor.
Why do children need chiropractic adjustments?
The position of a developing infant in the womb and the birthing process can be very physically traumatic. A German medical study found that, due to this physical stress, 82% of all children are born with subluxations in their necks. Toddlers learning to walk can fall more than 300 times each day. These repetitive traumas can cause vertebral misalignments that, if left unchecked, can cause bigger problems later in life.
How long will it take?
It stands to reason that the longer the problem has been there, the longer it is going to take to recover. There are many other variables to consider such as age, medical history, pre-existing conditions, etc. Please keep in mind that your lifestyle and your commitment to care (consistently coming to your appointments and completing assigned homework) plays a large role in how quickly your body heals.
