The human body is an amazing self-healing, self-regulating physiologic system that is 100% controlled by the nerve system. Chiropractic helps by correcting structural shifts of the spine and removing obstructions to nerve function. This dramatically improves the function of the nervous system thus increasing the body’s ability to heal.
A chiropractic adjustment often is accompanied by an audible release or pop within the joint but this isn’t 100% the case. The key is the restoration of normal motion and reduction of nerve obstruction and pressure. In some cases, muscle spasms are present and severe shifts of the spine prevent a full joint release with the adjustment. At Platinum Chiropractic our training and pin-point specific adjusting is tailored to every patient and often very small adjustments are needed and frequently these do not create a sound.
Insurance covers chiropractic care but it is dependent on the individual patient policy and the chiropractic office.
Hundreds of millions of adjustments are given by chiropractors around the world every year. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to be very safe and extremely effective. At Platinum Chiropractic, we take extra precautions using xrays and other diagnostic tools to insure the health and safety of our patients.
Not only is chiropractic safe while you’re pregnant, but also very beneficial and highly recommended. Research done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association shows dramatic reductions in labor times for women who receive regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy. Also, the birthing times are reduced therefore the stress on the mother and baby is less.
If by becoming addicted, you mean loving feeling better and having better body function and healthier living, then yes. There is no possible “addiction” to chiropractic adjustments from a physiological perspective.
Chiropractic is incredibly safe for children. At Platinum Chiropractic we use a very specific and gentle approach to chiropractic that not only helps align the spine and neck, but also helps to clear the neural pathways. This helps the nervous system to perform well, which is vital to healthy living. All people can benefit from unobstructed neural pathways especially children.
People are often surprised to discover that the education received at a chiropractic college is quite similar to the education received in medical school. Candidates for chiropractic college must complete a minimum of three years of college-level courses prior to entering school, and completion of a Doctor of Chiropractic degree requires four to five years of professional coursework. Also, the education of a chiropractor is similar in total classroom hours to that of a medical doctor. Chiropractors must earn a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree as well as a national certification and a state license.
Absolutely. Many research studies show excellent results in helping post-surgery patients. It is often said that the only guarantee about back surgery is that you’ll have another if you don’t take care of yourself afterwards. At Platinum Chiropractic, we see several FAILED back surgery patients and continue to help them regain their active lifestyles.
Chiropractic works 100% of the time and immediately takes effect upon receiving care. Symptoms can take time to resolve and is dependent on the severity of the problem. As a rule of thumb, any injury takes between 6-9 weeks of active care and rehabilitation for healing. This is dependent on the age of the patient, severity of the problem and several other factors. At Platinum Chiropractic, our detailed evaluation will help our doctors specifically determine the cause of your problem and help us construct a unique plan for your care.
