What is the Popping Noise when an Adjustment is Delivered?
The popping sounds you hear are called cavitations and are your joints releasing tiny pockets of gases. A chiropractic adjustment does not affect the bones of either side of the joint, but rather the connective tissue that holds the joint together.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drug-less and safest forms of health care available. Statistically, patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to medical care, where the use of prescription drugs and surgery pose a greater risk.
Does Chiropractic Care Hurt?
Chiropractic adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort because minimal force and gentle pressure are used. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.
Will I be Sore following a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your first visit can help ease any discomfort to promote healing.
How Long will my Visits Take?
This all depends on the length and severity of your condition, however, most first visits may last as much as 45 minutes. Follow-up visits are much less, usually about 10-15 minutes.
How Often will I need to Return?
At the end of your first visit, your doctor will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. The frequency in which you receive chiropractic care is strictly up to the professional judgment of the Physician and will vary from individual to individual depending on your presenting condition and overall goals. Just as regular visits to the dentist are necessary for good dental hygiene, routine visits to a Chiropractic Physician for proper spinal function and health maintenance are also important.
