Questions mark for frequently asked questions

Annandale chiropractors are often asked… Is chiropractic painful?

Like other chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

Is chiropractic painful?

Chiropractic treatment carried out by a properly qualified doctor of chiropractic, is generally painless. Occasionally if you have an acute condition with a lot of muscle spasm there may be some discomfort, however as an chiropractor I will always use the most appropriate technique to minimize any discomfort, and give advice on how to help yourself at home.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?

It’s always recommended to ask your chiropractor about any possible risk involved. In your initial appointment we will provide you with an informed consent letter that explains generalized contingencies. Many chiropractors will work with your preferred medical doctors to ensure you are receiving proper treatment. Always remember it is your healthcare and you are in control of it!

Do I need to get chiropractic care for the rest of my life?

We hope that you enjoy the benefits to chiropractic wellness. Once a patient has completed his or hers course of treatment determined by your Annandale chiropractor, we generally like to use the term “maintenance” for our returning patients. These patients generally come in once a month to keep up the their skeletal system.

Is chiropractic care suitable for children?

Considering that chiropractic has a great drug-free, holistic approach to medicine, taking your child to see a chiropractor should be a question of when? It is recommended that you have your child seen by a chiropractor within the first year, since we are doctors of the muscle skeleton, just to assure that everything is functioning properly. A child receives many falls and stumbles in their first years mainly because they are learning to walk, jump, crawl and simply take action. Early detection is key to a long life.
