Top Ten Q & A about Chiropractic

Dr. Ann Doggett - Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Do you ever randomly question ... "I wonder if I need to go to a Chiropractor to help my symptoms (X,Y,Z)?"  "I wonder if it's safe," and "Is it effective?  Will it help me reach optimal health?"  Here are the top ten most Frequently Asked Questions being asked at the practice and we have the answers!

 

1.  How does Chiropractic Work?

 

Chiropractic works by restoring your own God-given ability to be healthy. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and normal health. The Chiropractic objective is to locate these vertebral subluxations, analyze and deduce the gentlest way to help the body correct them using a Chiropractic Adjustment; thus releasing the pressure on the spinal cord and nerves involved restoring healthy communication between the brain and the body. Renewed health is the natural result as the body returns to a more optimal state of performance. Your chiropractor will place their hands on the patient's spine, directly over the subluxation, and apply a gentle direct force. This does NOT "put the bone back into place"; but rather unlocks jammed or fixated vertebrae from its position and permits it to move where the body needs it to go. Only the body's innate wisdom knows exactly where the vertebra should go.

 

2.  What is a Subluxation? How do you get them?

 

Subluxation is a misalignment of the spinal bones that result in nerves getting choked or irritated and cause your body to mal-function. Subluxations have a multitude of causes. From the moment we are born we are subjected to a wider variety of physical, chemical and mental stressors. The first subluxation can occur as early as the birth process or very early in life. As a newborn infant is pulled from the birth canal, tremendous strain and traction is placed on the delicate structures of the spine in the neck as it is stretched and twisted. This can be one of the first causes of early vertebral subluxation. Other causes include poor sleeping habits, poor posture, strenuous exercise, sports injuries, stress, tension & anxiety, chemical exposure (i.e. drugs and medications), injuries at work, automobile accidents, and stumbles and falls.

 

3.  Can Subluxations clear up on their own?

 

The body is always trying to heal itself, but in today's hectic lifestyles there is a constant source of subluxations. Fortunately, our bodies have the ability to self-correct many of these problems as we bend and stretch, or when we sleep at night. When subluxations don't resolve themselves a chiropractor is needed to correct the subluxation and give the body a better chance to heal itself.  Unfortunately, we cannot tell if we are subluxated by how we feel, we need to get checked for subluxations regularly by a chiropractor.

 

4.  What is an Adjustment?

 

Chiropractic adjustments usually involve a gentle but quick thrust that helps add motion to spinal joints that aren't moving right. Some methods use the doctor's hands, an instrument, a special table or the force of gravity. There are many ways to adjust the spine and they vary for infants to adults to seniors.

 

5.  Can I adjust myself?

 

NO, some people can make their joints "pop", but that's not an adjustment! Worse, damage can occur by mobilizing a joint with weakened muscles and ligaments. Adjustments are specific skills that take years to master and only a licensed chiropractor can perform a specific chiropractic adjustment. Even your chiropractic doctor must consult a colleague to benefit from chiropractic care.

 

6.  Are Drugs or Medications involved?

 

No. Chiropractic doctors don't dispense drugs, because we rely on natural methods. Drugs and medications usually band-aid the symptom but don't really help heal or fix the problem. There are also dangerous side-effects with medications. That is where chiropractic comes in. Chiropractors find the source of your problem and work on helping your body to return to being able to repair itself.

 

7.  Can I have Chiropractic Care After Back Surgery?

 

Yes. Rest assured that your chiropractic doctor will avoid the surgically modified areas of your spine. Surgery often causes instability above or below the involved level. These areas will be the focus of your chiropractic care.

 

8.  How Long Until I'll Feel Better?

 

Some patients experience almost instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process. How long have you had your problem? Are you keeping your appointments? Are you getting the proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Are you in otherwise good condition? Within a short period of time, most patients sense enough progress to fully carry out their doctor's recommendations?

 

9.  How Long Will I Need Chiropractic Care?

 

Depending on the degree of damage in your spine there may be weeks to months to years of corrective care to correct the cause of the underlying muscle weakness, soft tissue damage, and degenerative changes.  This is followed up by wellness or maintenance care. Similar to brushing teeth, tuning up your car or regularly visiting a dentist, wellness care is important for maintaining optimal health, saving money, and enjoying a healthy lifestyle. How long you decide to benefit from Chiropractic is always up to you.

 

10.  Is it safe to go to a Chiropractor while pregnant?

 

Not only is it safe to visit a chiropractor during your pregnancy, it’s also highly beneficial. All chiropractors are specially trained to treat pregnant women, but you may want to do a little research and find one who specializes in prenatal or perinatal care. Getting regularly adjusted while pregnant is a great way to relieve the added stress on your spine that comes along with the weight gain. It can also prevent sciatica, the inflammation of the sciatic nerve that runs from your lower back down through your legs and to your feet. It’s also important to maintain pelvic balance, which is oftentimes thrown off as your belly grows and your posture changes.

 

Besides making you feel better during pregnancy, getting regular chiropractic adjustments can also help control nausea, prevent a potential C-section, and has even been linked to reducing the amount of time some women spend in labor.
