What is chiropractic?  Chiropractic is a distinct science, art and philosophy of locating and correcting vertebral subluxations through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to function optimally.  It is based on the premise that the body is a self-healing organism.

What is a subluxation?  A subluxation is a misalignment of one or more spinal bones, or vertebrae, which cause interference to your nervous system.  Your nerve system coordinates all functions of your body.  Interference to this system will decrease your body's potential and it's natural ability to heal itself.  Correcting the subluxation will help to restore your body's natural, inherent potential you were born with.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?  An adjustment is a specific procedure that is performed by the chiropractor to correct the spinal subluxation.  The adjustment is based on a specific correction, which ultimately allows the body to find it's proper position and function optimally.

Do adjustments hurt?  Most people say adjustments feel great.  However, sometimes the area may be tender or irritated as the subluxation created damaged tissues in the area.  Some people experience temporary, mild discomfort after the adjustment.  Each person is unique and may respond a bit differently depending on their history, their daily activities and the presence of inflammation as the body heals.

How long will it take for my body to heal?  When we truly look at how the body works, we know the body heals itself every second of every day.  Your history, as well as the choices you make outside of the office, will greatly affect how your body heals.  For those who seek relief care, the symptoms may resolve in one visit- for others it may take a series of visits, as well as altering daily habits and activities. Those who seek wellness care schedule regular check-ups, as well as altering daily habits and lifestyle activities.

When is the best time to have my children checked for subluxations?  The birth process is often the first occurrence of a subluxation; therefore shortly after birth is the best time to have your child checked.  Keeping your child's body free of subluxations will assist with vital functions and communication during the important growth processes in the first years of life.
