OUR TOP CHIROPRACTIC QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT AND DOES IT HURT?
An adjustment is the hands-on manual, highly specific movement of any joint (usually in the spine or pelvis) to restore its function and therefore remove interference to the nervous system to allow the body’s healing process to occur.
The movement of the bones in the spine generates negative pressure causing bubbles in the joint to pop which is the sound you may hear/have heard (a popping or 'cracking' noise).
Although it may look like it will hurt, most people find that the adjustment is not only painless but feels good. For some people there may be minor discomfort during, or directly after, the adjustment. This is an important part of the healing process and will usually clear up within 24-48 hours.
CAN BABIES AND PREGNANT WOMEN SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
We believe this is the best time to get yourself assessed by a Chiropractor. Whether its to deal with those niggles in pregnancy, PSD or to prepare for birth. Getting your little one checked once born is the absolute best time for them to be checked, after all birth is a huge trauma to their bodies as well as yours. We see children of all changes, we always recommend babies to get checked soon after birth. Our youngest client was 2 days old.
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO SEE A CHIROPRACTOR FOR?
Chiropractic care focuses on the cause of the problem. By supporting the body’s natural processes (and innate intelligence), a series of manual adjustments to realign the body achieves effective and enduring outcomes.
How many visits you need will be determined by several factors:
· How long you have been experiencing any symptoms
· What the cause is
· Your age
· If you have any other conditions
· Your lifestyle i.e. levels of stress, physical exertion/activeness
· What you want to achieve through your care
Progress will be regularly reviewed and monitored throughout your care with us, ensuring we are providing the most appropriate care for you.
