Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should a child be adjusted?
A: Significant spinal trauma can occur during the birth process so many parents have their newborns checked for spinal nerve stress (subluxations.) Later, learning to walk, or ride a bicycle, and many other childhood activities can cause spinal problems. Many childhood health complaints that are brushed off as “growing pains” can often be traced to spinal problems. Naturally, Chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to a child’s spine. Most parents report that their children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and seem much healthier than other children. Parents also report decrease in reported ear infections, allergies, digestive issues, headaches, asthma, colic, and behavioral issues (including ADD/ADHD symptoms.)
Q: Now that I've started care, how long do I have to keep coming?
A: Just like wearing braces at a dentist office, once you get your teeth straight you want to keep them that way, so you wear a retainer. The same principle applies at a chiropractors office. After your care plan you want to move to maintenance care to maintain the level of health that you have achieved and help deter future problems.
Q: What is the “popping” and “cracking” sound made during an adjustment?
A: Your body’s joints are lubricated with fluid (called synovial fluid whose principal role is to reduce friction between cartilage during movement) that helps joints move properly.  Throughout your day, moving your body can produce little air bubbles of nitrogen in the joints.  During the adjustment these air bubbles are released therefore causing any sound.  It is not anything breaking or rubbing the wrong way.  It is just a natural sound that results in more range of motion once the bubble is gone.
