Chiropractors only manipulate people with spinal issues.

FACT: It is true that a lot of what a Chiropractor may do is spinal manipulation therapy however they can do much more. Some examples are: ultrasound, laser treatment, electrotherapy, or even acupuncture.

It’s painful!

FACT: A Chiropractor will be sure to review your medical history and will not do anything that could make you feel worse. There are tests that can be done to assess your individual needs and a manipulation plan will be made to provide you with the best results. It won’t hurt, but you may hear popping noises; it’s gas being released from your joints.

Chiropractors only treat back and neck pain

Making one appointment means Chiropractor visits for life!

FACT: With an acute issue, relief tends to come after 4-10 visits but every case is different and individual needs must be considered. Beyond that preventative treatment is up to the patient, that schedule is determined in collaboration with your Chiropractor should you want continued treatment.

A referral from my Doctor is always needed
