Chiropractor Frequently Asked Questions

What conditions can a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractors are trained to treat issues related to the musculoskeletal system, which primarily includes problems with muscles, bones, joints, and nerves. Common conditions they can help manage include back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, and sports injuries. Chiropractic care is not limited to relieving pain; it also focuses on improving function and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although no health treatment is free of potential adverse effects, the risks associated with chiropractic are very small. Most patients feel immediate relief following a chiropractic adjustment, however, some may experience mild soreness or aching, similar to that felt after exercise, which typically fades within 24 hours.

How many chiropractic sessions are necessary?

The number of chiropractic sessions needed varies depending on the individual's condition, the severity of the symptoms, and their health goals. Some patients may experience significant improvement after just a few treatments, while others may require a longer period to achieve optimal benefits. Chiropractors usually suggest a plan of care that includes a series of sessions, after which progress is evaluated.

What should I expect during my first visit to a chiropractor?

During your first visit, the chiropractor will conduct a thorough assessment including a medical history and a physical examination, with particular attention paid to the spine and posture. Diagnostic imaging or lab tests may be recommended if needed. Following the assessment, the chiropractor will discuss a proposed treatment plan with you, explaining the benefits and any potential risks of the treatments suggested. The initial visit typically concludes with the first treatment, which may involve spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and suggestions for exercises you can do at home.
