Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 


Q: How does chiropractic care work?

A: Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Our spines change and develop problems just like our teeth, eyes and heart. Left unchecked for a long time, these changes may lead to pain, stiffness or other more serious problems.

The nervous system is a key part of your body. It is the communication system between your brain and all of your body's muscles, organs and tissues. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well. For your nervous system to function well, it must be free of interference. The spine is the most common site of nervous interference because nerves travel from the spinal cord through openings on either side of the spine to get to all of your cells and organs.

Each of us is born with the ability to heal and recover from illness. Our bruises heal, cuts mend and common colds are overcome. Your nervous system regulates this inborn healing ability.

Think of your brain as a central command post sending and receiving information through telephone wires (your nerves) which branch out to connect all areas of a city (your body). A short circuit in a wire cuts off communication just like misalignments in your spine can put pressure on the nerves. This pressure interferes with your nervous system, affects your ability to self-heal and may prolong injury or illness.

The customized care you receive from your chiropractor may help to improve your posture, muscle balance and mobility. It can also restore the integrity of your nervous system and get rid of pain quickly, so you can get back to feeling good today!

Q: Is chiropractic effective?

A: Yes. Chiropractic care is safe and effective. Scientific evidence proving that chiropractic care works is overwhelming. Over the past 20 years, many controlled and independent research studies have shown again and again that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other conditions relating to the spine*. Based on these scientific studies, the consensus is that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems as well as well as muscles, neck and extremities.

* The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on their problem and how long it has existed.

Q: Do many people see chiropractors?

A: It is estimates that 20-30 million Americans see a chiropractor each year. Alternative and non-medical health care is on the rise in this country and chiropractic is by far the most popular form. According to current research, approximately one third of the population recognizes the benefits of alternative health. The majority of these alternative healthcare users choose chiropractic. The non-surgical, drug-free healing nature of chiropractic provides benefit to the health of millions of people worldwide each year. Most chiropractic patients experience real relief and general well being and continue to make regular visits a part of their healthy lifestyle choice.

Q: How Often Do I Need To See A Chiropractor?

A: A common question is how long chiropractic treatment should continue. Your chiropractor will discuss the need for ongoing care with you, and it will depend on your specific problem. For some people chiropractic treatment is like a regular physical tune-up, to help deal with the daily wear and tear of life. For others, it's simply an effective treatment when back pain or other health issues strike. Take the time to discuss with your chiropractor the level of care that's best for you.

Testimonial

  • "My first experience with a chiropracter came 5 years ago after a cycling accident. Conventional physicians told me I hurt my shoulder and it was just something I had to deal with. So I slept and moved with significant pain for about 3 months before I decided to see a chiropractor. What could I lose? Well, what I gained was almost INSTANT relief. Dr Choe found that the issue was acctually a neck strain that pulled my shoulder and created additional pain. After a sisngle major adjustment, I felt relief. And after a few weeks of follow up, I no longer had pain that kept me awake at night. I am a firm believer in Chiropractic health. At 50 I feel better than ever and I owe that to Dr Babuin and Dr Choe. Bailey and Christina run the front office efficiently and there are never mix-ups or problems. A+ practice!"
