Chiropractic FAQs to Ease Your Mind

By Randi Morse 

If you've never been to a chiropractor's office before, you may have a lot of questions you want answered. Here, we're going to attempt to answer many of the most asked chiropractic questions. 

Q: Do chiropractors only treat certain conditions? 

A: It's a myth that chiropractors can only work on back ailments. The truth is that an experienced and well-trained chiropractor can work on a wide range of different bodily issues, including the majority of injuries or disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which is anything that involves joints, ligaments and muscles. 

Q: Is it safe to go to a chiropractor? 

A: The world of chiropractic treatment has come a long way in the past 50 years. Chiropractic treatment is now widely known as one of the best, least invasive therapies for those who require treatment for neuromusculoskeletal complaints. As with any medical treatment, there are always risks involved. The risks from chiropractic treatment are minimal, especially if you choose an experienced chiropractor. 

Q: How does it work? 

A: Just as every patient and problem is different, so is every treatment. On average, a patient will come into the chiropractic office with a specific complaint or goal. The chiropractor will examine them and ask any questions they find pertinent to the problem they are going to work on. They will outline a specific course of treatment for the patient and should give an estimate on how long this treatment may need to continue in order to get the results the patient is looking for. The actual procedure itself doesn't usually take very long, but you may need to repeat your treatment regularly for a set amount of time. 

Q: I heard a pop in my head! Is that normal? 

A: It can be a little scary to hear a loud noise in your head when you're getting adjusted, especially if the adjustment is around the neck area. But that popping sound is completely normal and is nothing to be afraid of. If you do get anxious, speak with your chiropractor. They should be happy to explain everything to you so that you don't worry about any of the sounds you may hear during your treatment. 

It can sometimes be scary trying something new, but chiropractors are doctors with years of training so that they can find the root cause of issues that often stem from restrictions along the spinal cord.
