Chiropractic is based on a simple,yet powerful premise. With a normal functioning spine and a healthy nervous system, your body is better able to heal itself. That's because your spine is the lifeline of your nervous system. It controls feeling, movement, and all functions throughout your body.

Yes. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative and natural approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs. As proof, one merely has to compare malpractice rates between chiropractors and other health care professionals. Chiropractors' malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors.
No. The doctor evaluates each patients unique spinal problem and develops an individualized plan of care. Each chiropractic adjustment builds on the one before. The resulting recommendations are based upon years of training and experience. Each patient's care is uniquely different from every other patient.
Anytime is a good time for a better functioning nervous system. Pregnant mothers find that chiropractic adjustments improve their pregnancy and make delivery easier for themselves and their baby. Adjusting methods are always adapted to a patients size, weight, age, and condition of health.
Actually, adjustments do not always produce a sound. Often, however, adjustments do create the sound of a spinal "release" or "popping" sound. The sound is caused by gas rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when the joints are slightly separated. This sound is painless and totally harmless.
That will all depend on the nature of the problem as each person's problem is different and heal at different rates. Most people heal within a matter of weeks if they have a long standing chronic condition it can take longer.
If the doctor finds that the patient is a good candidate for care, the cost will vary dependent upon what type and how much treatment or therapy the patient needs in order to heal properly.
