Q: What conditions can chiropractic help?
In our experience, people have seen great results with neck and back pain, headaches, migraines, vertigo, fibromyalgia, sciatica, hand and foot numbness, diabetes, MS, parkinsons disease, disc hernations, digestive issues, ADD/ADHD, depression, ringing in the ears. Chiropractic is unique because it is not a treatment for any single issue. The reason chiropractic is so successful is because it helps the body to function better overall and heal itself.
Q: How old do you have to be to get adjusted?
There is no minimum age; both Dr. Wayne and Dr. Matt's have adjusted many babies since birth including their own children. Birth can be very traumatic on an infant especially if forceps or a vacuum was used. Common reasons people bring babies to us are for colic, constipation, torticollis, sleep trouble, and digestive issues. When babies are adjusted, very gentle techniques are used.
Q: Will I need x-rays?
The necessity for x-rays is determined on an individual basis. If you have copies of spinal x-rays or MRIs it is encouraged that you bring them in with you.
Q: Why do I need to come so often?
Chiropractic is a process. You wouldn't expect to lose 20lbs by going to the gym once or twice, or have your teeth straightened by an orthodonist in one week. Often times chiropractors are working with conditions whose underlying cause has been in the body for years. To eliminate the true cause of the problem, time and repetition are needed to allow the body to heal itself.
Q: What is a vertebral subluxation?
A vertebral subluxation is when the mechanics of the spine are altered and neurological function is hindered. A vertebral subluxation can be the underlying cause to musculoskeletal issues, neurological disorders, and even chronic disorders of bodily organs. The detection and correction of vertebral subluxations is the primary focus of chiropractors.
