What's Wrong With Me?
Accurately identifying the cause of pain or discomfort always requires a thorough consultation and examination. Individuals should not assume their pain stems from the same problem, for example, their neighbor had, and thus assume that what has helped their neighbor will help them. Just as every individual is unique and different from the next, so too are the health conditions they suffer and the treatments they require.
Chiropractic doctors are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue injuries and abnormalities common to the spine, extremities, and rest of the body. Rest assured that if you are suffering from back or neck problems, extremity problems or other health-related ailments, chiropractic adjustment coupled with other natural therapies like massage can provide you with the effective relief you demand. If your condition is out of the chiropractic scope or would be more appropriately managed by another health care specialist, we will gladly and promptly make the necessary referral.
Can Chiropractic Help Me?
Chiropractic has helped millions of people worldwide suffering from all types of problems – not just back and neck ailments. Chiropractic works with the spinal column and its intimate relationship with the nervous system – the primary controller of all bodily functions. By optimizing biomechanics, irritation and stress are removed, and health can once again be achieved.
Of course, doctors of chiropractic are best known for their success in treating back and neck problems. Through the use of chiropractic spinal adjustments and other highly specialized chiropractic techniques, chiropractors have established themselves as the back and neck injury specialists. Many medical experts are now coming to understand the true effectiveness of chiropractic care and are recommending significant changes in the way our health care system manages many common spinal problems.
According to a recent Ontario Ministry of Health commissioned study on low-back pain; “A very good case can be made for making chiropractors the gatekeepers for management of low-back pain.”
How Long Will Treatment Take?
While treatment lengths vary somewhat from person to person and from condition to condition, there are a few rules of thumb you can follow.
First, newer injuries, if treated appropriately and immediately, tend to respond to fewer visits assuming that major tissue injury has not occurred. Conditions that have been present for greater than three months and recurring conditions are generally more stubborn and take longer to manage. Either way, a custom treatment plan will be created just for you, so you know what to expect. Resolution may require 12 visits or more.
The only sure way to determine how long your treatment will take is to schedule a consultation and examination.
For those of you who believe in just waiting for the problem to go away on its own, understand that the longer your condition has been around, the more treatments will be required to resolve the issue and return you to a pain-free life.
How Much Will It Cost?
Costs vary and generally depend on the number of treatments required for effective rehabilitation. Several studies have shown that chiropractic care is extremely cost effective when compared to other types of healthcare for similar conditions.
According to the 1993 Manga Report; “There would be highly significant cost savings if more management of low-back pain was transferred from physicians to chiropractors. Users of chiropractic care have substantially lower health care costs, especially inpatient costs, than those who use medical care only.”
Are Chiropractic Treatments Safe and Do They Hurt?
Chiropractic treatments are safe for individuals of all ages – from infants to elderly folks. Our treatments are safe because we use noninvasive methods of care that work with your body to support natural recovery. Research consistently shows that care from chiropractors is among the safest care available.
Chiropractic physical medicine is generally painless. In fact, most patients look forward to their treatments as some experience relief after the procedure. Individuals who present with moderate to severe pain may experience some minor discomfort due to preexisting pain; however, care is always gentle, safe, and noninvasive.
