Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuro musculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.
No. Chiropractic adjustments feel great. We are confident that once you begin receiving your adjustments, you will begin to look forward to them. When you allow the vertebrae in your spine to return to their proper position, you will notice much less stress and tension.
It is not necessary for a medical doctor to refer you to the clinic for treatment, though many of our patients are referred by their medical doctors or specialists. If you have any questions, our staff will be more than happy to assist you.
Absolutely not. An Athletic Therapist specializes in musculoskeletal injuries (bones, muscle, ligaments, tendons, etc.) and will treat any individual who has an interest in improving their functional ability, their sport performance, decrease their pain and/or improve their quality of life.
The majority of insurance companies cover athletic therapy. We recommend you confirm with your insurance company to make sure your plan covers Athletic Therapy. The policies vary from workplace to workplace.
