Your Chiropractic Questions, Answered!
By Sara Butler
Chiropractic care is as popular as ever as people are looking for a more natural and less invasive way to treat health problems and make their health a priority. Every year the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic see many first-time chiropractic patients and they always have questions. Questions are great, but to help you find out all you need to know, here are a few of the most popular questions about chiropractic and their answers.
Is Chiropractic Safe?
Chiropractic care is considered one of the safest treatments out there for a variety of health issues. The treatments you receive from the chiropractors at The Joint are drug-free, natural, and non-invasive, so your side effects are often minimal, especially compared with other treatments such as surgery or medications.
What Can Chiropractors Treat?
Chiropractic care is often associated with the treatment of back and neck pain, but that's not all that chiropractic care can help address. Since the focus of the chiropractor is to ensure your central nervous system is working as it should, and your central nervous system controls every single function of your body, then it's easy to see how chiropractic care can have an impact on health conditions that have nothing to do with your back or neck. In fact, chiropractors have had success treating migraines, sciatica, blood pressure issues, sports injuries, muscle pain, digestive disorders, and more.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Children and Pregnant Women?
While it is true that many adults get chiropractic care, you may be surprised to find that children as young as infants can benefit from it too. In children, chiropractic care has successfully been used to treat many health problems such as chronic ear infections and acid reflux.
Pregnant women also find a lot of relief from the physical discomfort of pregnancy with the help of chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can help to relieve the stress and strain placed on the body during pregnancy and also help women to recover after birth.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
Your chiropractor went to school for many years to learn all about the body and to learn how to adjust the joints in a gentle and controlled way so that you don't feel much of anything after an adjustment. In fact, many patients experience relief from symptoms almost immediately after the adjustment, though some soreness can occur in the first 24 hours after an adjustment.
