1How long does it take to start feeling better?
While some patients experience relief instantly, others discover it can take many weeks or months. There are many factors that can affect the healing process such as how long you have had your problem, the severity of your condition, keeping your appointments, and following through with home care recommendations? Most patients experience enough progress within a short period of time to justify completing our recommendations.

If you have limited or no chiropractic insurance benefits, please know that we offer affordable treatment options and flexible payment plans so you can receive the care that you need.
4Can I just take some muscle relaxers or pain killers instead?
Chiropractors do not prescribe or dispense drugs of any kind. Medication often masks your symptoms, allowing you to further injure yourself because you have “numbed” your bodies warning signals that there is a problem. it is important to remember that muscle relaxors and pain medications do not correct the underlying cause of your problem (what is actually causing the muscle to spasm or the pain to occur). In addition, virtually every drug produces side effects which can include stomach problems, kidney failure, liver damage, addiction and even death. Chiropractors focus on the cause your pain and health problem, and work to correct it – helping your body recover quickly and naturally.
5Can I go to the Chiropractor if I’m pregnant?
Yes! We have patients under care who have just found out they are pregnant all the way through patients who are about to deliver. To our patients delight, our specially designed treatment tables even allow you to lay face down right through your nineth month of pregnancy! Chiropractic care is safe for you and your baby, and can help you achieve a healthier pregnancy and delivery. The safety, effectiveness and health benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women have been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies. In one study conducted by a member of the American Medical Association board of trustees, Irvin Henderson, M.D., it was shown that women who received chiropractic adjustments in their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver children with more comfort. Another study conducted by a well-known orthopedist, Per Freitag, M.D. revealed in a hospital study that incorporated chiropractic adjustments during the patient’s pregnancy, that the need for painkillers during delivery was reduced by half!
