You may be considering chiropractic treatment for the first time in your life and wondering just what it will consist of. First of all, you will be given a thorough examination so that a course of chiropractic care can be prescribed that is specifically designed for you. This examination helps the doctor of chiropractic determine the underlying problem that may be causing pain that refuses to go away.

Depending on the nature and extent of your specific problem, a series of recommended treatments should help you feel noticeably better. After one to four weeks of chiropractic treatment, the pain for non-complex musculoskeletal conditions should typically be reduced by 40% and possibly up to 80%. The frequency of visits to the doctor of chiropractic should decrease as your pain and function improve, going from possibly two to three times a week of intense chiropractic therapy, to eventually once a month as maintenance.

Is your medicine cabinet filled with a variety of bottles of pills that you find yourself taking more and more frequently just to make it through your day.  From the time of birth, it seems powerful synthetic drugs become part of the diet and then continue on through life.   As a typical part of a chiropractic doctor’s education, they study the side effects—both the good and the not so good--of the many types of drugs on the market.  This is an ongoing education that many chiropractic doctors are continually engaged.  They are then in a position of being able to advise their patients to look at the various side effects of any drugs they may be putting in their bodies.

A common question among chiropractic doctors is, “Could we get through life with just chiropractic adjustments, natural foods and nutrition, proper exercise, rest and a balanced spiritual life?”   In many cases, the answer to this question may be a resounding “yes!”  Because our bodies are in a constant state of change, changes in your daily habits will help the body change for the better every day.

Research shows that at some point in their life, many Americans will suffer from neck pain. The study also shows that there is no proven, first-line treatment. However, new research has proven that along with light exercise, treatment from a neck chiropractor actually relieves neck pain more effectively than pain medication.

Moderate and acute neck pain is one of the most common reasons that prompt millions of visits each year to a primary care doctor. In some cases, the pain and stiffness crop up without any explanation; it could be just the wrong turn of the neck or sleeping in the wrong posture. Treatment options are varied according to the doctor, including physical therapy, pain medication and spinal manipulation.

It has now been shown in further studies that patients who receive care from a neck chiropractor, together with specific types of exercise, have a significant reduction in pain after just a few weeks compared to patients who only took medication to relieve their pain. This is because the cause of the pain was treated, not just the symptom!
