Chiropractic Care  Q & A

Is chiropractic care safe?

Recognized as one of the safest non-drug, noninvasive treatments for neuromuscular skeletal complaints, chiropractic care boasts an excellent safety record. However, no treatment option is entirely risk-free. The risks associated with chiropractic treatment are rare.


Most patients feel immediate relief following their chiropractic treatment, although some may experience mild side effects, including soreness, stiffness, or aching. These symptoms are similar to that of performing certain exercises. 

Doctors of chiropractic care are well-trained professionals providing care for common conditions that are both safe and effective. When speaking with your chiropractor, it is important to be specific about your issues to receive the most comprehensive care possible.

How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?

 A chiropractic adjustment is performed manually by the highly refined skills and hands of your chiropractic physician. 

The purpose of your adjustment is to restore or enhance the function of your joints, which can reduce inflammation and pain. These controlled manipulations are adapted to the needs of each patient, using a personal approach that frequently provides immediate relief from symptoms.

Why is chiropractic care ongoing?

Due to the nature of chiropractic care, and the need for hands-on adjustments as part of your treatment, you may need to visit your chiropractic physician several times. 

All chiropractic treatments are conducted in the office by the chiropractor. In contrast, a medical doctor’s course of treatment frequently involves a pre-established plan completed at home by the patient. 

What is that popping sound during a chiropractic care adjustment?

Sometimes manipulating the joint -- frequently referred to as an adjustment -- releases a gas bubble between the joints. This gas bubble release causes a change in pressure between the joints and makes a popping sound, the same noise you hear when cracking your knuckles.

Can I see a chiropractor if I’m pregnant?

Many pregnant women find chiropractic care beneficial throughout pregnancy and even report that it may assist with delivery. All adjustments are adapted to treat each patient’s needs and can accommodate the current stage of pregnancy.
