Are there chiropractic adjustment side effects?

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Everybody is different.  A good chiropractor will do a careful evaluation, potentially take and necessary xrays to see the condition of the spine, and with that information, lay out the  best plan possible for that patient.  Chiropractic is not an overnight fix.  Typically it took some time for your spine to get the way it is, and it typically will take some time to get better.

How much does a chiropractic care cost?

It depends on each individual case.  Typical visits are about $50, however most of the time a patient will not pay per visit but will be given a care plan that is what is needed to get them better.

How can I find a chiropractor near me?

How do chiropractors relieve pain from injuries or accidents?

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

That is pressuring coming out of the joint.  It is like when you open a can of tennis balls and all of that pressure comes out.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

No

Can I learn to adjust myself?

No

Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?

Typically no – however during the initial evaluation the doctor might have you put on a gown with your back exposed so he can better evaluate your spine as carefully as possible.  After that, no clothing is typically removed.

What type of education and training do chiropractors have?

The schooling is almost identical to medical doctors – except chiropractors DO NOT study pharmaceuticals (because we are a drugless healing profession) – and we get courses on chiropractic adjusting – whereas MD’s do not.
