The number of patients internationally that are turning to chiropractic care is rising and is, in fact, the highest it has ever been. This is a great thing as it means that more and more people are understanding how important spinal health is and how chiropractic care can offer relief. With the rising curiosity about chiropractic care comes numerous common questions about it as well. Below are just some of the questions people are asking.
Is Chiropractic Safe?
Yes! Chiropractic care is a conservative and natural way to heal your body without any invasive surgeries or medications that can become addictive. It is so safe, in fact, that the malpractice insurance premiums our chiropractors pay are a fraction of the cost of medical doctors.
Can I Adjust Myself?
Absolutely not. Our chiropractors have years of education, training, and hands-on experience behind them and are proficient in adjusting your spine in the safe and correct manner. There is a big difference between twisting your body around to crack your back and having a professionally done spinal adjustment. IT can be counter-productive to engage in self-joint manipulation and can also be dangerous.
Are All Patients Adjusted the Same Way?
No. Every spinal adjustment is tailored to the specific needs of the patient receiving it. Our Atlanta chiropractors will perform a consultation and evaluation on each person’s individual symptoms and problems and recommend an individualized treatment plan to address these concerns.
What Causes that Popping Sound During an Adjustment?
The popping sound you hear during an adjustment is merely gasses within your body escaping as a result of a partial vacuum that forms while your joints shift around. Although this may make you nervous, it is nothing to fear. You also may not hear any sounds at all during your adjustment.
Why Should I Go to a Chiropractor?
Back pain is not the only reason to visit one of our doctors. Although conservative treatment like chiropractic care is recommended as the first line of defense by the American College of Physicians, it is not the only thing our doctors are trained to help you with.
We can use chiropractic to help for a multitude of other ailments, and our adjustments and treatments improve nervous system function which promotes natural healing within the body. Call us at (404) 889- 8828 to schedule your appointment today and begin feeling better.
