Q: Is chiropractic treatment safe?A:
Chiropractic treatment has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs. Compare the statistics: adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking over-the-counter pain relievers.Q: How does chiropractic treatment work?A:
Chiropractic treatment works by restoring the body's own inborn ability to be healthy. Every cell, tissue, and organ is under the control of your nervous system. When these nerves are “pinched” or irritated, they can cause a less-than-optimal functioning nervous system, thus causing pain or decreased function. The chiropractic approach to health is to locate and help remove nerve interference to your natural state of being healthy.
Q: How long will I need chiropractic care?A:
The number of visits varies with each patient and each condition. Many patients sense progress within a few weeks of frequent visits. Visits become less often as your spine stabilizes. In chronic cases, complete healing can take months or even years because with long-standing problems, there is often associated muscle weakness, soft tissue damage, and degenerative changes to the spine. Treatment plans are always individually made based on that patient and his or her goals. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.
