Restore your mobility with the help of thorough chiropractic treatment from Caring Chiropractic. Take some time to learn how chiropractic care can lead to pain relief and your overall wellness.
Are chiropractic adjustments painful?
Most patients say that the adjustments are not painful. Even those patients who were in bad pain before coming to our office say that the adjustments do not feel bad.
Many patients experience an immediate relief of their pain. Some feel an overall relaxation after an adjustment.
Does chiropractic treatment work?
Consecutive studies have found that back pain sufferers are more satisfied with chiropractic care even years after treatment. Many other official studies report the benefit for several other conditions.
Are all patients treated in the same way?
No. With 24 freely movable spinal bones, each of which can misalign in several ways, each patient has a fairly unique pattern of misalignment requiring unique correction.
How often will I need to visit the chiropractor?
Pain relief may occur after one treatment. Many patients notice changes within the first couple of weeks as the spine starts to correct and become stabilized. How fast or slow an individual responds to treatment is unpredictable.
Factors such as how long the condition has been progressing and the condition of the spine itself (arthritis, disc degeneration) affect the healing time. You will never worry about receiving any more treatment than is necessary in our office.
What kind of education does a chiropractor have?
We have a doctorate degree. Before being admitted to an accredited chiropractic college, we must complete at least 2 years at a college with laboratory courses in biology, chemistry, and physics.
Then we must complete at least 4 years of professional study at one of 17 accredited chiropractic colleges in the U.S. Courses include more than 2,000 hours of biological and clinical sciences, and more than 1,000 hours of chiropractic sciences, such as X-ray techniques and interpretation.
Along with extensive clinical internship, we must pass numerous national examinations to graduate chiropractic college. After graduation, we are required to pass state boards to become a licensed chiropractor.
