Useful information for patients of In Good Hands Chiropractic

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about chiropractic care and services...

It's not about how you're feeling it's about how you're healing.
Chiropractic care focuses on addressing the root cause of your health concerns rather than the symptoms. The emphasis of chiropractic is on the inborn recuperative power of the body to heal itself; this is done by focusing on the relationship between the structure and the function of the spine and nervous system.

Your brain, spinal cord, and all of your nerves control every aspect of your body and when the signal and messages from your brain are hindered due to a misalignment, or subluxation of your spine, a variety of health issues can arise. Hindering of the fundamental nerve links between your body and your brain can result in ill health effecting muscle, joint, and organ function.

Through examination of the spine chiropractors locate the area of nervous system compromise and apply a specific, non-invasive spinal adjustment allowing the proper flow from body to brain. Chiropractic is a simple and natural approach to total body health and is rooted in the philosophy that the power that made the body heals the body.
The short answer is absolutely! Everyone can benefit from improved nerve function throughout the body so getting your spine checked for interference and correcting normal function will allow your body to operate optimally resulting in improved overall health.
We tell patients to plan for their first visit with the doctor to take approximately 45 minutes, but once the doctor has gone over her recommendations for care future appointments are at YOUR convenience, just walk in!

As far as length of time for your body, chiropractic care is dependent on an individuals own ability to heal itself therefore results are harder to predict. There are some patients who report benefits in a few short visits while others take weeks to months to see the progress they desire. It is important to keep in mind that many of your health concerns didn’t appear overnight and therefore it may take the body some time to heal.
