The doctor adjusted me and I didn’t hear the crack, did it work?

Yes, just because you don’t hear a cavitation during an adjustment doesn’t mean it didn’t work. The goal of the adjustment is to restore the movement to that joint and the cavitation is not a necessary component of that.

I don’t like the sound of my joints cracking, should I still see a chiropractor?
Yes, not all techniques used by chiropractors involve manipulating your joints (that noise you often hear when getting adjusted). Simply let your chiropractor know your preferences and he/she should be happy to oblige!
Other than adjustments, what else do Chirorpactors do?
Adjustments are just one tool in a chiropractors tool bag. Your chiropractor may also perform soft tissue therapy (stretching, Myofascial release etc.), spinal decompression, prescribe exercises and use therapeutic modalities such as TENS or electrical magnetic stimulation. You and your chiropractor will determine what treatment methods are going to get the best results for you.
Recently I have been suffering from migraines, is there anything that can help?

It has been our experience that headaches respond very nicely to chiropractic care. First we need to determine what is causing your headaches and then eliminate the problem. After a thorough evaluation we can determine if your headaches will respond to our type of care.

Why should I keep coming to my Chiropractor when I am not in pain?

Oh this is a very interesting question. I can’t tell you how many times over the years I have heard of someone who in uninformed tell me that once you start going to a chiropractor you have to go forever. Sometimes it makes you laugh and other times it makes you want to shout. You see when you understand the basic operation of the human body you understand that you need to FUNCTION at you highest capacity to fight disease, enjoy activity, health and wellness. You need to be proactive to maintain your health by making sure that your nervous system has no interference. You brush your teeth everyday. Why? It maintains dental health and prevents degeneration of your teeth, which you can replace. You can’t replace your spine…take care of it as it houses the rivulet of life.
