No, a referral is not generally required to see a chiropractor. However, that information will be verified with the person’s insurance prior to the initial appointment.
A typical doctor’s training includes an 8 year program of undergraduate and professional college study and clinic internship prior to entering private practice. The areas of science studies important to the health care of human beings, including diagnosis, anatomy, pathology, physiology, biochemistry, pediatrics, geriatrics, spinal manipulation, x-ray, nutrition, physical therapy modalities and various other appropriate subjects.
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. However, as with any healthcare treatment there are risks, albeit very small. Most patients may feel some varying degree of immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may also experience mild soreness, stiffness or aches,such as the feeling after some forms of exercise. This typically fades within 24 hours.
Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows, from simply learning to walk as well as sports activities. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including neck and pains, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is a highly skilled treatment and is always adapted to the individual patient and children are no exception. The consideration of chiropractic care for your child is reasonable and logical.
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the doctor of chiropractic’s intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractic physician typically uses his or her hands or an instrument to manipulate (adjust) the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. This often helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces the patient’s pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.
There is no definite answer to that question since every case is different. The hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment is essentially what requires patients to visit the chiropractor a number of times. How long it will take to actually “get well” or improve depends on. Many factors such as nature of the complaint, lifestyle, weight, age and how long the condition has been present. Other factors such as Living habits, occupation, genetics, attitude and of course your cooperation will all contribute to the time required for you to improve. Your doctor of chiropractic should tell you the extent of treatment recommended and how long you can expect it to last.
Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved.
