Chiropractic takes a different approach to healthcare. Unlike the medical doctor, the chiropractor does not believe that health is the result of effectively treating disease. Chiropractors focus on health and on helping an individual reach his or her potential in every area of life. Chiropractors do this by keeping the nervous system clear of interference as possible so the body can work better, naturally. This approach seems more logical and is definitely more cost-effective than the treatment of disease, and is now widely accepted.
Absolutely not. While most will hear the “pop” or “click” sound, some will not due to various reasons (arthritic conditions, muscle spasms etc). The brain will still receive the input from the motion put into the spine to make the appropriate positive changes.
Yes of course, but times have changed for most patients in the healthcare arena. Most deductibles are much higher these days and some patients are finding it more cost-effective with fewer headaches to forego using the insurance and payout of pocket instead. We always will help you determine what is in your best interest.

Most chiropractors, myself included, know that chiropractic care is of great benefit to the health of your spine. Keeping your spine well adjusted is akin to keeping your teeth brushed and flossed – but it is not addictive.
Chiropractic is extremely safe for children. We use adjusting techniques catered to each individual that are gentle and safe. We encourage children to be checked regardless of symptoms. Chiropractic is essential to allow a child's nervous system and spine to grow optimally and without interference. Although chiropractic doesn’t actually “treat” conditions, having a clear nervous system helps to reduce ear infections, bedwetting, asthma, and allergies. To improve a child's immune system and digestive health and to limit colic and constipation and to encourage proper nerve and brain development (neural plasticity).

Chiropractic care has the potential to help people suffering from back pain after surgery, as long as they are adequately healed prior to beginning treatment.
It all depends on your goals. If your goals are only to temporarily feel better (fix the effect), then it could happen after one or two visits. If your goal is to correct the underlying cause of your pain then it could take weeks for your body to heal appropriately. Either way, depending on your issue, you typically will start to feel better within a few visits.
