A Simple FAQ: Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a growing form of healthcare, and this is for good reason! The benefits of seeing a chiropractor regularly are becoming abundant and well known. More and more people are turning to this care for a growing number of reasons. Still, the practice for some people remains a little skeptical. If you are a bit curious about chiropractic care, but don’t know where to start, check out this short list of frequently asked questions to get you moving in the right direction.

What Can A Chiropractor Treat?

This is probably one of the most oft asked questions. Most people think of the chiropractor as a “back doctor”, and honestly, they can absolutely treat your back. They can, however, do a lot more than that. The most often treated ailments in chiropractics are pain in the back, neck, and headaches. Chiropractors can also treat a poor immune system, arthritis, bad digestion, and many other bodily ailments. Many people don’t even have an ailment when they see a chiropractor. They simply go for preventative and maintenance measures, which can also be extremely beneficial.

Is a Chiropractor Licensed?

Yes! A chiropractor must hold a license to practice, just like your regular physician. They also spend years in school, and graduate with a Doctor of Chiropractics degree. A chiropractor is a licensed, educated professional, and even though they sometimes get an unnecessary bad rap, you can rest assured that your body is in good hands when you visit this doctor.

Do I Have to Go Regularly?

In short, no, you don’t have to. It is, however, much more beneficial. Even 1 visit can be good for you, but for the real benefits, it truly is best to go on a regular basis. It is also a good idea because regular care can help treat ailments, as well as prevent ailments from popping back up in the future.

What Exactly Does a Chiropractor Do?

On your first visit, you are likely to get somewhat of a consultation. Where do you hurt? Why are you here? What is your pain level? This is followed by appropriately designed adjustments for your specific body and ailments. Generally, chiropractors work by fixing misalignments of the spine. These misalignments can cause pain, stiffness, inflexibility, and other negative side effects. By aligning these vertebrae back into their proper location, these types of symptoms may be eliminated, which can help you put you in better overall health.
