How does Chiropractic Care help?

Chiropractic care helps by relieving pain and improving function with no prescribed drugs or surgery. Dr. Neary will adjust or manipulate your spine and other body parts to get them in the right position, or proper alignment. When your body is in proper alignment, you have a better chance of healing yourself.

I didn't hear a sound. Does that mean the adjustment didn't work?

When your joints are moved it can create a kind of vacuum. The joints gap slightly and gas rushes in to fill the space, hence the popping sound. The caveat about the pop when it comes to adjustments is that it doesn't have to happen in order for an adjustment to take place. That's because chiropractors use different techniques in order to adjust your back, and some of those techniques aren't going to put the vertebrae in your back into a position that causes a pop.

How safe is Chiropractic?

Yes, it's proven safe and effective through numerous studies over many years. Chiropractors have lower insurance rates which means they are much safer than medical treating the same problem.

Is Chiropractic care safe while I'm pregnant?

Yes, it is safe to get chiropractic care while pregnant. Besides helping to relieve the discomfort many expectant mothers experiences, chiropractic care helps normalize nervous system function. This is an important component of overall good health.

Modifications to the table or adjusting techniques are made during each stage of pregnancy. Dr.Neary is a specialist in the location, reduction, and stabilization of the vertebral subluxation complex, which can be related to many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with pregnancy and labor.

The benefits of chiropractic care may also be noticed during delivery. Women who receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy often report healthier pregnancies and more comfortable deliveries.

Can I become addicted to chiropractic adjustments?

No, you cannot get addicted to chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments release endorphins which is similar to a "runner's high". So, the adjustment is good for you and feels good. So many people choose chiropractic as a wellness lifestyle as opposed to a medical cure for pain and relief only.

Is chiropractic safe for children?

Yes, chiropractic is safe for children. Chiropractic adjustments can improve a child's brain neuroplasticity (brain health and development) and motor skills function. Research also shows chiropractic care can help kids with improved sleeping, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immunity( fewer colds and ear infections).

How much schooling does a chiropractor have?

Chiropractors spend the same amount of classroom hours as MD students but emphasize on diagnosing spinal subluxations and reducing them not covering up symptoms with pills or injections. Chiropractors are primary healthcare providers therefore you don't need a referral but can go directly to a chiropractor for pain, health, and wellness needs.

Can I see a chiropractor if I've had back surgery?

One of the most helpful therapies used post-surgery is chiropractic care, which involves performing chiropractic adjustments to allow your body to heal and relieve pain and discomfort in the body. Chiropractic care is absolutely safe for most patients who undergo back surgery after they have healed from the procedure.

How long will it take to work?

Chiropractic care can give immediate results but not always and shouldn't be expected. Delayed improvement may be because many factors play a role, severity of the injury, length of time problem present, what treatments have already been tried, multiple areas, and body parts injured.
