Q & A


Q: What are a chiropractor’s qualifications?

A: Chiropractors spend years receiving highly specialized training in order to locate where misaligned spinal vertebra are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out to the muscles, organs and glands of the body.  Learning to properly and safely correct these misalignment’s and restore normal bodily function requires several years of rigorous study and disciplined practice.

Q: Why do patients seek chiropractic care?

A: Although, several patient conditions have responded favorably to spinal care like sciatica, digestive troubles, menstrual problems, headaches or migraines, constipation, erectile dysfunction, whiplash, difficulty breathing, back pain, colic, and many more it is important to understand that the goal of chiropractic is not to treat the disease or condition, but rather to enhance the patient’s health through the reduction of stress placed on the nervous system.


Q: Are spinal adjustments safe?

A: Yes, they are very safe. Chiropractic care is in fact so safe that we are among the lowest malpractice rates in the entire healthcare industry.  There are thousands of published studies proving chiropractic’s safety and effectiveness.  Our specialized evaluation and treatment techniques produce optimal results without dangerous invasive procedures or highly addictive drugs.


Q: What is the “popping” sound?

A: The “popping” noise, cavitation, or audible you may hear during a chiropractic adjustment is nothing more than the release of gases in the joint. This cavitation may or may not be heard during each adjustment. Your doctor will be able to distinguish when the subluxated or misaligned joint has increased motion after each adjustment whether there is an audible heard or not.
