Frequently Asked Questions

Is chiropractic care safe?

Many studies find chiropractic “remarkably safe.” Chiropractic has also been shown to be safer than back surgery, muscle relaxers and even aspirin!

Is a Chiropractic Adjustment painful?

Adjustments are rarely painful. In fact, most patients feel it relieves pain and tension in their joints. A few patients report slight soreness or a dull aching in the treated muscles or joints. These are considered normal reactions to the treatment and generally disappear shortly afterward. In the majority of cases, adjustments are painless and the beneficial effects from the treatment are quickly realized.

If I go to a chiropractor, do I have to go the rest of my life?
