Our team of fully-accredited Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta receives dozens of questions from interested and concerned patients just like you, each and every day.
From what goes into various Chiropractic techniques and services to general questions about safety; our team always takes the time to carefully explain the full ins and outs of what to expect.
Questions to Ask an Atlanta Chiropractor
As the patient, knowing what to ask to prepare and protect yourself adequately can be difficult. As the adage goes, “You don’t know, what you don’t know,” so being able to obtain the right information from your Chiropractor is not possible without some form of guidance or assistance.
If you’ve just moved to Atlanta or are looking for a new Chiropractor and have some initial questions, take a look at the list of answers below that are a reflection of some of the most common questions we receive.
Are Chiropractic Techniques Safe?
Dozens of studies that are supported by decades of research show that Chiropractic care is not only safe, but it’s one of the most reliable forms of physical therapy available to patients in need. The primary reason for this is that Chiropractors tend to utilize techniques and procedures that align organically with your body’s natural composition and posture, opposed to prescribing medication or invasive surgery.
Considering the volume and severity of side-effects associated with prescription drugs and surgery, Chiropractic patients might only have to worry about slight aches or minor stiffness.
How Do I See A Chiropractor, Do I Need A Referral?
Believe it or not, you do not require a medical referral to visit your local Atlanta Chiropractor.
It’s also important to know that you do not necessarily have to experience some form of pain or discomfort to schedule an appointment, either.
We serve hundreds of patients each and every day who maintain a particular adjustment routine to support their immune system and to maintain a pain- life.
Are There Other Reasons I Should Visit An Atlanta Chiropractor?
There is an extensive list of reasons why people throughout Atlanta visit a Chiropractor. Chronic headaches and pain in the back or neck are why most people seek support, although any condition that negatively affects your musculoskeletal system can be addressed through noninvasive techniques and treatments.
How Many Chiropractic Visits Will It Take Until I’m Feeling Better?
Perhaps one of the most popular questions we receive from patients is, “How long will it take until I’m all better again?”
It’s certainly understandable to want to know a specific timeline of events that will lead to a day where you’re completely healthy and feeling great again.
However, the responsible answer to this question is, “It depends.”
For some patients, it can some visits for their condition to improve. For others, setting up a rigid schedule is necessary in order to properly correct chronic conditions for the long-term.
When you visit our office, your Chiropractor will be able to outline a reasonable timeline that is completely considerate and dedicated to what you specifically need in order to improve.
Many patients notice great improvement after their first few visits, while those that stay committed to their personal health for more than a few months tend to vastly improve for the long-term.
