FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS....
I heard if you seek chiropractic treatments you have to go for the rest of your life.
When it comes to your health the choice is always up to you. You don’t have to see a chiropractor for the rest of your life, just like you don’t have to see a medical doctor or dentist for that matter. The choice is up to you. If you want to benefit from healthy habits then regularly seeing your chiropractor is a good idea.
How does chiropractic work?
Chiropractic adjustments work by assisting your body’s nervous system to re-establish communication. If nervous system communication if interrupted it’s difficult for your body to maintain balance. It’s just as difficult to continue a conversation when there is a dropped call on your cell phone.
If you’ve ever jammed a finger you know that its’ joint swells up and makes it difficult to move your finger. What most of us instinctive do is pull on the finger in an attempt unjam our finger. Chiropractic works in a similar way, instead of jammed fingers it’s a spinal misalignment. However when there is a spinal misalignment it interferes with the spinal nerves your body’s central communication network. If nervous system communication is interrupted it’s difficult for your body to maintain balance.
Does it hurt to receive an adjustment?
Most of the time it actually feels good to get adjusted. The spinal misalignment is corrected and range of motion in the joint is increased. In general it does not hurt to receive an adjustment. What happens from time to time is that the patient is nervous and muscles are guarded. This makes it more difficult to give an adjustment, now adjustment must go through the joint restriction and guarded muscle. Sometimes after an adjustment a person may feel sore.
Is receiving an adjustment safe?
Chiropractic is very safe. While it can certainly be scary to have someone adjust your neck, adjustments from a trained professionals are safe and will increase your range of motion, increase your blood flow, and stimulate your nervous system.
How many treatments will I need?
We all want to feel better yesterday. The truth is that nature has her own time table. There are no short cuts in healing. Everyone is different. After tests have been performed and initial treatment has been received, we will decide on a strategy to you into feeling good and restoring your health together.
How long does it last?
Good health depends on you and I will guide you. Good health is not a destination we arrive at. Lifestyle factors play a major role in how long it lasts.
What is homeopathy and how does it work?
Homeopathy is a non-toxic form of energy or vibration medicine. Homeopathy works by assisting your body to attune to healthy vibration once again.
Why do I need to get new blood work?
The lifecycle of a red blood cell is approximately 120 days. This means about every 3 months you have a new set of blood. Blood work older than 120 is great for establishing trends and patterns, but is not up to date and accurate.
What type of blood test do you run?
I order a comprehensive blood test. I can also order individual tests as necessary.
Can’t I get hormone testing through my regular doctor?
In general most traditional doctors run blood work to determine hormone levels. I prefer to run salivary test. There are a couple advantages to running salivary tests. First salivary tests are very convenient. Spit in a tube and drop it in the mail. You don’t have to make a trip to the lab. Second, salivary testing looks for unbound hormones or active hormones. Unbound hormones are the hormones that are affecting you. Blood hormone tests, detect protein bound hormones. Blood and salivary do not necessarily test for the same thing.
What type of hormone tests are available?
The hormone tests include: an adrenal stress index, female hormone panel, male hormone panel, and a complete gastro-intestinal analysis.
Isn’t my health determined by my genes?
Yes and no. Your genes give your body the blueprint for construction. Some genes are like light switches that get turned on or off. Your family history will indicate which possible diseases one might be susceptible to. However, simply because you may carry the gene does not necessarily mean that the gene will get turned on and come into play. There are many lifestyle factors that influence whether a gene gets turned on from a dormant place.
How long do I have to take supplements for?
My philosophy on supplements is that in generally they are there to help your body overcome a deficiency or assist your body in making specific chemicals. Sometimes people take supplements as a preventative measure or due to a hectic lifestyle. Personally, I take supplements for my adrenal glands. I take vitamin B12 to slow down the natural degradation of my brain. I take specific supplements as a preventative measure in hope of preventing Parkinson’s disease, since I have a family history.
Do you take insurance?
The question is really does your insurance take me. Today there are so many different insurance plans with various benefit packages it’s difficult to predict coverage without calling the insurance company.
What are your hours?
I work by appointment only. I can accommodate most busy schedules. Please call for availability.
