Chiropractic Care FAQ

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.

What are the Types of Chiropractic Treatments

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Chiropractors are able to perform a number of different types of treatments such as Manual Therapy, Acupuncture, Shockwave Therapy, Exercise therapy, Active Release Techniques, and much more

What is Spinal Manipulative Therapy (An Adjustment)

Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) or an adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustment restores proper movement and optimizes function in the joint.

When a joint is released, a gas bubble escapes causing the popping noise you may have heard about.

Chiropractic adjustment techniques have been researched extensively. Complications are rare and side-effects, such as temporary soreness, are usually minor. Your chiropractor is well-trained to determine if your problem will respond to chiropractic care or if you require referral to another health care provider

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of headache, and neck and back pain. It has an excellent safety record. However, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. Even common over-the-counter medicines carry a risk. Your Chiropractor will always perform a thorough assessment including a detailed history, physical examination and will speak to you about any risks to treatment, if any, as well as alternate forms of therapy.

Most patients experience immediate relief following chiropractic SMT, however, some may experience temporary pain, stiffness or slight swelling. These risks are often minor and short-lived and your chiropractor will always prescribe home care and advise if these do occur.

Is an Adjustment Painful

Chiropractic adjustments usually do not hurt. Adjustments to certain joints in the spine or extremities may feel slightly uncomfortable or pressure, but once the adjustment is performed you should not feel pain. In general, patients enjoy being adjusted and like the way that the adjustment feels. The adjustment also helps relax the patient.
