Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know when to see a chiropractor?

If you have a spine, you should see a chiropractor to make sure your nervous system is functioning at 100%.  Even if you do not have symptoms, getting your spine checked is the best way to take control of your health and prevent issues down the road.

Should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
YES! It is crucial to see a chiropractor after an auto accident. Recieving chiropractic care after an auto accident will help prevent any minor injuries from worsening into serious and chronic issues down the road
Are chiropractic adjustments low-risk or high risk?

Very Low risk. Although some adjustments may look scary, they are very gentle and extremely safe.

When will I know if the adjustment worked?

Every persons body responds differently. Some people may immediately feel relief, while others may take weeks to see some changes. The issue usually did not happen overnight so you cannot expect it to go away overnight with one adjustment. You must be patient with your body as this is a healing process rather than a quick fix.

How come I do not feel any difference after an adjustment?

Depending on the cause of your pain, the problem may take some time to correct therefore it may take time to feel better.

What results should I be expecting after my adjustment?

You can expect to feel a decrease in pain and an increase in mood/energy. You can also expect to have better sleep and a stronger immune system. These results usually do not occur immediately after your adjustment because it can take some time to fix the cause of your specific problem. Some people feel immediate relief while others feel mildly sore after their first adjustment which is a totally normal response.

How often do I need a chiropractic adjustment?

This is all dependant on your exam and X-Ray findings. A care plan will be tailored to your spine so each person’s healing journey will be a little bit different. In the beginning of your corrective care plan, the frequency in which you are getting adjusted usually needs to be more so we can work with muscle memory to make changes quickly.

Will I be able to speed up my recovery process?

Yes, by following the chiropractors recommendations for home care.

Do I need a recommendation from a doctor first?


Is chiropractic treatment safe? I have heard stories of how a person got worst after their visit to the chiropractor

Yes, it is very safe. Some patients will experience more pain in the beginning of care because changes are being made and muscle memory causes the body to try to resist these changes. You must stick with the care plan that was designed for your spine in order to see changes.

How about children and infants?

Chiropractic is safe and beneficial for infants and children.

Can pregnant women be given chiropractic treatment?

Yes, it helps make for a more comfortable pregnancy. Research also shows that getting adjusted throughout pregnancy can reduce labour time.
