Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic
Are chiropractors real doctors?
Yes. Chiropractors are doctors similar to other doctors in allied health care professions like optometry, podiatry, dentistry and psychology. Chiropractors have the academic degree of "Doctor of Chiropractic", which is given after an average of 8 years of university.
What does a chiropractor do exactly?
Your brain is protected by your skull and your spinal cord is protected by your spinal column. When spinal bones move out of alignment they interrupt communication between the brain and the body- otherwise known as nerve flow.
What's the popping sound?
Will chiropractic work for me?
Chiropractic is for everyone!
Like the tip of an iceburg, the symptoms you see are really just a glimpse of what is going on at a deeper level. Chiropractors work to find and treat the hidden cause.

Will getting adjusted hurt?
Chiropractic treatment is usually painless unless an area is inflamed (swollen). If this is the case your chiropractor will alter the treatment. Don’t worry if you hear a clicking or popping noise when one of your joints is being manipulated – this is perfectly normal. Some patients have mild reactions such as temporary aches and pains after their spine or joints have been manipulated, similar to being sore after exercising. It is important that you talk to your chiropractor if you feel worried about anything either during or after treatment. This is also important because there are many different techniques that can be used to adjust certain areas.
