Here you'll find some commonly asked questions about Chiropractic and the wealth of Benefits you and your body should be experiencing.
What does a Chiropractor do?
Chiropractors do not treat conditions. Instead, they correct a major cause of dis-ease or lack of body harmony: the vertebral subluxation complex. Think of a healthy spine as you would good nutrition: important for general good health but especially necessary if you are suffering any disease or condition.
Vertebral subluxations are very common and often painless. That's why doctors of chiropractic suggest spinal checkups for all members of the family.
Remember, you can always benefit from a healthy spine no matter what your health status. Help awaken your "inner doctor" by getting a chiropractic spinal checkup and adjustment.
What is a Subluxation?
A subluxation is misaligned vertebrae causing interference to nerve messages that flow through your body and brain. It may involve your muscles, discs, ligaments, tendons and other body parts as well.
What is a Spinal Adjustment?
A spinal adjustment is a special procedure your chiropractor uses to correct or relieve your vertebral subluxation complex. It can be a very powerful procedure. At the moment that a chiropractor corrects your vertebral subluxation complex, hundreds of bodily functions and activities are affected, the flow of nerve impulses over the spinal cord and spinal nerves is normalized and your body begins to renew and rebuild itself.
All of the highly trained doctors of chiropractic at the Family Chiropractic Centers have spent years mastering this procedure. There may be many subluxations in your spine and consequently you may receive many adjustments.
How should I feel after an adjustment?
After an adjustment you may experience a feeling of deepening peace and relaxation. This relaxed feeling may last for the rest of the day or the week and may lead to deep refreshing sleep. Others have, at times, felt a warm feeling flowing to various parts of their bodies that is very soothing. Some feel very energetic and do all their chores or business that day with a light, happy feeling.
Others may find that the problems that they came to the chiropractor for have begun to lessen and there are some people who feel no difference after an adjustment. That does not necessarily mean that they are not benefiting from their adjustments, it just means that they're not feeling any external reaction.
