No. Many people come to the office with conditions other than low back and neck pain. We see problems in the extremities such as knee and shoulder irritation, organic conditions such as stomach and bowel irritation, ear infections and blood pressure. In these cases we check first to see if there is any spinal nerve irritation to the associated area of the body. In most cases, this will help the symptoms being experienced. If the condition does not respond as anticipated, we will look at adjusting the extremities, nutritional supplements and consultation with other health care providers.
Does Chiropractic Hurt?
No. Rarely does a person experience any discomfort. In most cases, the person has some amount of relief with the very first adjustment.
How long will it take?
Everyone’s body is different, and there are many variables involved, such as the problem area or areas and the length of time condition has been present. Many people begin experiencing positive results in the first week. From that point there are several options:
Relief care - simply getting a reduction in symptoms
Corrective care - after seeing relief, continuing care to make long-lasting corrections to the spinal joints
Maintenance care - once the misalignments are corrected, this is a way to ensure you stay healthy with the many daily activities and stresses.
