To understand what happens during a chiropractic adjustment and why you may need one, it is necessary to first understand the philosophy and goals of chiropractic care. The Association of Chiropractic Colleges defines chiropractic as follows:

“Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.”

  • back, neck, arm, shoulder, or leg pain,
  • headaches, allergies, arthritis, colds, flu, vision,

In recent years, chiropractic therapy has grown in favor with clients and physicians alike. Why has it become so popular? It is non-invasive, safe, effective and gentle, a science of natural healing that activates your body’s healing power. Depending on the nature and extent of your specific problem, and following a thorough examination, a series of recommended chiropractic treatment should help you feel noticeably better. Low back pain, neck pain, and headache are the most common problems for which people seek relief.

The chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which chiropractors either use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. Also known as spinal manipulation, the goal of this procedure is to improve spinal motion and improve your body's physical function.

What are the risks of chiropractic treatment? When performed by a trained and licensed chiropractor, it is safe! Serious complications are rare but may include a herniated disk or a worsening of an existing disk herniation, compression of nerves in the lower spinal column, and/or a certain type of stroke after neck manipulation.

If you have any of the following conditions, chiropractic is not for you:

There is a concern among family chiropractors that many families have given up on exercise programs. Busy parents start and stop various training programs, join gyms, and buy workout clothes, spending their hard-earned income on things they end up not using. Ultimately, the whole family loses out on the benefits of exercise.

Why is starting an exercise program so difficult? There are so many forms of exercise to choose from that fitting it into a busy schedule is overwhelming. There is weight-lifting, swimming, bicycling, running, Pilates, yoga, tennis, baseball, and the list goes on. The challenge is selecting the form of exercise that’s best for you and your family, and then having the knowledge to begin training in a way that it will be beneficial and not harmful.

With summer on the way, families are getting outside and starting some form of exercise. However, if you’ve been sitting on the couch all winter, it’s easy to hurt yourself. Doing too much too soon or doing the wrong type of exercise is a typical cause of injury. Those who really don’t want to exercise in the first place and get hurt after a few day or weeks into their new program will probably quit and not start again.
