What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health science based on correcting interference in the nerve system. This interference is caused by physical, chemical, and emotional stress. Specific, gentle chiropractic adjustments remove that interference so your body will function at its optimum potential. (that means you will be the best YOU ever.)
What is an adjustment?
A specific, non-invasive “thrust” delivered by hand which is called a “manual adjustment.” It’s fast and non-painful. The purpose of the adjustment is to remove nerve interference from your body. By removing nerve interference, your nervous system can function better. Your nervous system controls every living cell within your body.
Will my adjustment hurt?
No! We have safely adjusted tiny children a few hours old right up to practice members ninety-five years or older. When adjusting babies and small children, the pressure used for an adjustment is no greater than the pressure you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato. As we grow older, the adjustment is slightly different, but there is still very low “force” used.
Can you help my sick child?
I help lots of children, which makes their parents rave about their healthy child. Children respond incredibly well to chiropractic care. Like stated earlier, being adjusted has been scientifically proven to affect your nervous system. Your nervous system controls your immune system. With that being said, having a fully functional nervous system creates a stronger immune system. Which means less sickness! Schedule an appointment to have your child checked to see if I can help them.
How many times do I have to come?
That’s easy . . . . come as often as you want to heal, feel great, defy age, and live pain-free! Because each individual is unique on every level, it’s difficult to know how many times you will need to be adjusted in order to reach each of your health goals. For practical purposes we can estimate your initial schedule, but that is subject to change according to your rate of progress and goals. One thing is for sure: YOUR goals and expectations will determine your care plan – frequency and duration.
Will I feel better after getting adjusted?
Your care is unique to YOU, and how your body heals and responds is also unique. Most people are very happy with the results of chiropractic care. Many of them feel relief from pain almost immediately after an adjustment. It’s also possible that the pain may require several to many adjustments to fade. Rarely, a small percentage of people may experience a temporary increase in their symptoms before they start to get better. No matter what course your recovery takes, you should also know that beyond the removal of your symptoms, chiropractic care offers an opportunity for much greater overall health, if you choose to use it for that purpose as well.
What type of conditions do you help in children?
The list is endless! Here are a few of the most common conditions that I treat in my office and that are helped by chiropractic care: colic, torticollis, constipation, cold and flu, difficulty nursing, ear infections, sleep disturbances, asymmetrical head shape, digestive issues, allergies, sinus congestion, bed wetting, autism, ADD/ADHD, scoliosis, and much more!
What services do you offer?
We offer the most personalized supportive chiropractic care possible cutting edge chiropractic adjustments utilizing the most natural way of healing, by hand, using the techniques: Webster (a specialized technique for pregnant women), Diversified, and Logan Basic, along with an Activator instrument, soft tissue, trigger point therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, and a true community of practice members who care about their health and the well being of those around them, to encourage and support you on your own journey towards well-being.
How long will it take to get adjusted?
Even the busiest practice members commit to making chiropractic care a priority in their lives and find the benefits well worth their time. Your adjustment may take between ten and fifteen minutes. If however, you want to schedule extra time, one-on-one to talk about a particular issue, just ask and we will schedule appropriately. Your first appointment will take a bit longer, roughly 30 minutes. This is because Dr. Danielle will dive deep with you into your case, as well as your present and past health history. She will also perform a detailed examination to determine the source of your pain to help her treat you to the best of her ability.
What if I feel fine? Do I need to keep coming back?
That is always up to you. The truth is that those who stop care when they are “feeling fine” often return later with the same problem, only it’s sometimes worse. On the other hand, those that commit to regular care find their problem rarely returns: as well, they enjoy a higher quality of life and health. If regular chiropractic care keeps you “feeling fine”, why would you choose to stop doing what’s working for you? It’s kind of like this: if your teeth feel fine, do you stop brushing them? If you want to stay fit and healthy, do you only work out for a month and when you start seeing some results stop? Or do you continue to workout and eat healthy? Chiropractic is the same way. If you want to stay healthy and out of pain, maintaining your health at the chiropractic office is important!
