What is Chiropractic?
Big question! Here is the short answer: Your spine needs to move properly in order for you to stay out of pain and to maintain your health. Most of the time, this happens automatically. But when segments of your spine get stuck and stop moving, a chiropractor can get them “unstuck” with specific adjusting techniques. The goal is to get you feeling better fast!
What can you treat?
The top three conditions we treat are low back pain, neck pain and headaches, but nearly any type of muscular or skeletal condition can benefit from chiropractic care.
How often should I come?
Many people get some relief after only one or two treatments, but the number of treatments depends on many factors including:
-How long the problem has been there
-How serious the problem is
-How healthy you are generally
-How active you are
Most people benefit greatly from regular visits – about once a month, to maintain their spinal health and prevent major problems from ever occurring. Dr. Smith personally sees a chiropractor at least once every three weeks.
Dr. Smith uses gentle, hands-on adjusting techniques to restore mobility to spinal joints which helps to relieve pain and improve the function of your nervous system. He also uses an adjusting instrument for young children, the elderly, or anyone else who requests this service. In addition, Dr. Smith has specific equipment to facilitate the treatment of young babies and pregnant women.
