3 Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic Care
When it comes to chiropractic care, people often have unanswered questions, as many of us have never been under the care of a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and, therefore, do not know what we can expect when we visit one. Below are a few frequently asked questions regarding chiropractic care, along with answers that can help you to better understand how it works and how it could potentially boost your overall health, both in the short and long term:
Question #1: Why Should I see a Doctor of Chiropractic?
Your chiropractic practitioner is most likely trained to treat a whole range of health concerns, ranging from chronic pain, to nutritional concerns, to stress. You would be surprised at how many health concerns can be remedied, or at least partially relieved, with regular chiropractic adjustments. The best way to find out if your particular condition(s) can be treated with chiropractic care is to make some time to go and have an initial consultation with them. That way, they can give you a better idea of if/how they can meet your specific needs. Below, you'll find a list of some of the conditions that could potentially be treatable with chiropractic care:
- Back Pain
- Sleep Troubles
Question #2: Is is safe to receive chiropractic care?
According to the American Chiropractic Association's website, "Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints". Although there are no medical treatments out there that are completely free of potential adverse side effects, you can rest assured that receiving regular chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment for a multitude of health conditions (see above).
Question #3: How long does chiropractic treatment last?
Although your chiropractic practitioner may be able to greatly improve your condition within a few visits, it is generally recommended that you get regular adjustments for preventative care due to chiropractic's hands-on nature. However, during your initial consultation with your practitioner, they will most likely be able to tell you how long you can expect to be treated for you condition.
