WHY CHIROPRACTIC?

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of locating & correcting vertebral sublaxations through gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments thus allowing your body to function at its optimum potential.

What is an adjustment?

A gentle, specific "thrust" delivered by hand or instrument. The purpose of the adjustment is to correct your spinal sublaxation(s) thus removing the nerve interference in your body.

Does it hurt  to get adjusted?

No. Chiropractic adjustments feel great. I am confident that once you begin receiving your adjustments, you will begin to look forward to them. They will become one of the highlights of your week. When you allow the vertebrae in your spine to return to their proper position, you will notice much less stress and tension.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes. Statistics prove that chiropractic care is one of the safest types of health care in the world. You only need to compare the malpractice premiums paid by chiropractors to those paid by medical doctors. Doctors of Chiropractic pay only a small fraction (approx. 1/20) of the price medical doctors pay in malpractice premiums. 250,000 people will die this year as a result of bad medicine, making this the third eluding cause of death in the United States of America (The Journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA; Vol.284, July 26, 2000). Of the millions of people receiving chiropractic adjustments, each year, only a handful will even make a complaint.

Is it bad to "crack" your back or neck a lot?

If a person has a desire to "crack" his/her neck or back it is often because one area of their spine is jammed causing another area  to move too much and "pop" sometimes by itself. It's the jammed area that needs to be properly adjusted by a chiropractic so that the other parts of the spine will not by hyper mobile and noisy.

When you "crack" your back you may be relieving the tension for a little while. Do you notice how it keeps coming back? That is because you are not giving yourself a specific chiropractic adjustment. Any person who makes a habit out of "cracking" or "popping" their back or neck needs to go to a Doctor of Chiropractic to have their spine checked. Even a chiropractic can't adjust him/herself.

"I first discovered the benefits of chiropractic treatment after an on-the-job injury nearly 40 years ago. After pointless visits to medical doctors and out of desperation because of no relief, I was referred to Dr. Woods for chiropractic treatment by a friend. I have been a patient for the last 10 years and I am enjoying the benefits of having a healthy spine and maintaining a better quality of life. At nearly 70 years of age, I'm certain that chiropractic is allowing me to live a pain free life."
