  • What conditions do chiropractors treat?
    Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. They are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches using their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. DCs also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, ligaments and joints. These painful conditions may involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury. In addition, chiropractors offer advice to patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.

  • Is chiropractic treatment safe?
    Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest nondrug, noninvasive forms of health care available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours. Neck pain and some types of headaches are treated through precise cervical manipulation. Cervical manipulation, often called a neck adjustment, works to improve joint mobility in the neck, restoring range of motion and reducing muscle spasm, which helps relieve pressure and tension. Neck manipulation, when performed by a skilled and well educated professional such as a doctor of chiropractic, is a remarkably safe procedure. Some reports have associated high-velocity upper neck manipulation with a certain rare kind of stroke, or vertebral artery dissection. However, evidence suggests that this type of arterial injury often takes place spontaneously in patients who have pre-existing arterial disease. These dissections have been associated with everyday activities such as turning the head while driving, swimming, or having a shampoo in a hair salon. Patients with this condition may experience neck pain and headache that leads them to seek professional care at the office of a doctor of chiropractic or family physician, but that care is not the cause of the injury. The best evidence indicates that the incidence of artery injuries associated with high-velocity upper neck manipulation is extremely rare—about one to three cases in 100,000 patients who get treated with a course of care. This is similar to the incidence of this type of stroke among the general population. If you are visiting your doctor of chiropractic with upper-neck pain or headache, be very specific about your symptoms. This will help your doctor of chiropractic offer the safest and most effective treatment, even if it involves referral to another healthcare provider. When discussing the risks of any healthcare procedure, it is important to look at that risk in comparison to other treatments available for the same condition. In this regard, the risks of serious complications from spinal manipulation for conditions such as neck pain and headache compare very favorably with even the most conservative care options. For example, the risks associated with some of the most common treatments for musculoskeletal pain (i.e. over-the-counter or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and prescription painkillers) are significantly greater than those of chiropractic manipulation. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that overuse and abuse of prescription opioid pain medications is among the leading causes of accidental death in the United States. Doctors of chiropractic are well trained professionals who provide patients with safe, effective care for a variety of common conditions. Their extensive education prepares them to identify patients who have special risk factors and to ensure those patients receive the most appropriate care, even if that requires referral to a medical specialist.

  • What type of education and training do chiropractors have?
    Doctors of chiropracticare educated as primary-contact healthcare providers, with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system (the muscles, ligaments and joints of the spine and extremities) and the nerves that supply them. Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are among the most stringent of any of the healthcare professions. The typical applicant for chiropractic college has already acquired nearly four years of pre-medical undergraduate college education, including courses in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, physics, psychology and related lab work. Once accepted into an accredited chiropractic college, the requirements become even more demanding — four to five academic years of professional study are the standard. Doctors of chiropractic are educated in orthopedics, neurology, physiology, human anatomy, clinical diagnosis including laboratory procedures, diagnostic imaging, exercise, nutrition rehabilitation and more. Because chiropractic care includes highly skilled manipulation and adjusting techniques, a significant portion of time is spent in clinical technique training to master these important manipulative procedures. In total, the chiropractic college curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. The course of study is approved by the Council on Chiropractic Education, an accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Source: American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
  • Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted?
    Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved. Source: American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
  • Are multiple visits necessary with chiropractic care?
    The hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment is essentially what requires patients to visit the chiropractor a number of times. To be treated by a chiropractor, a patient needs to be in his or her office. In contrast, a course of treatment from medical doctors often involves a pre-established plan that is conducted at home (i.e. taking a course of antibiotics once a day for a couple of weeks). A chiropractor may provide acute, chronic, and/or preventive care thus making a certain number of visits sometimes necessary. During your consultation and/or physical exam on your first visit, Dr. Tina will create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and answer any questions you might have. She will discuss the extent of her recommended treatment and how long you can expect it to last.
  • How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?
    Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the doctor of chiropractic’s intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractic physician typically uses his or her hands or an instrument to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. This often helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces the patient's pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.

  • How much does chiropractic care cost?
    Since each patient's treatment plan is tailored to his or her individual needs, it's impossible to provide a specific per visit price estimate. Whether or not a patient has insurance and their specific plan coverage will also affect out-of-pocket office visit expense estimates. Usually, your first visit will last longer and be more expensive than your subsequent visits because of the time required to discuss your individual case, perform the physical exam, tailor a treatment plan and then finally provide your first treatment and/or therapy. Please view our Pricing page to see the prices for our various services.

  • I'm pregnant. Is chiropractic care safe for my baby?
    Yes! Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free discipline. It is one of the most effective and safest forms of health care to treat pain due to spinal related conditions. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to identify and treat misalignments of the vertebrae and their subsequent effect on the central nervous system. Anti-inflammatory medication and pain relievers merely mask symptoms and have many undesirable side effects. Chiropractic's conservative approach offers a safe and effective option for treating pain. Dr. Tina is trained to handle the needs of pregnant women and may use tables that adjust for a pregnant woman’s body and techniques that avoid unneeded pressure on the abdomen.
  • Why is prenatal chiropractic care important?
    During pregnancy, there are several physiological and hormonal changes that occur in preparation for the birth of your baby. The hormone relaxin loosens joints which increases pelvic imbalance. Center of gravity moves forward increasing lumbar curve and placing extra strain & force on spinal joints. Modified posture causes loss of cervical curve leading to headaches. Modified gait causes pain in sciatic nerves, pelvic & hip joints. Sacral subluxation disrupts neurobiomechanics of the pelvic region which may contribute to dystocia (difficult labor).
  • What are some of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
    Maintain a healthier pregnancy Control symptoms of nausea Relieve back, neck and joint pain Pelvic alignment and balance Less back labor Reduced need for pain medication
  • Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?
    Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. In the case of children, it is very gentle. Source: American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
  • What happens in a pediatric chiropractic visit?
    A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment, if it is determined treatment is needed. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective.
  • Why do newborns get chiropractic adjustments?
    Stress and trauma to the body and spine commonly begin with the birthing process. Infant’s spines can easily become misaligned from the intense pressure involved in both natural and Cesarean births. Unfortunately, other than crying, they have no way of communicating their pain, and it's source, to us. Studies suggest that breastfeeding problems, reflux, colic, ear infections, erratic sleeping habits, issues with crawling, standing or other movements can be signs of spinal distress. Pediatric adjustments are gentle, noninvasive and safe. Babies will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective.
