Frequently Asked Questions
Does chiropractic treatment hurt?

There is a possibility of some discomfort with a chiropractic adjustment but no; pain with an adjustment is not normal. There are many techniques to avoid any discomfort in patients that are more susceptible to side effects, more sensitive to pain, or nervous about treatment.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic adjustments are very safe when someone trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care performs them. Complications associated with adjustments are rare.

How does acupuncture work?

Human bodies are complex. In TCM, we consider the body to be a complex web of interconnecting and crossing channels. Health problems occur when there is an imbalance within these channels, causing a blockage that is often felt as pain. In acupuncture, specific points are chosen to help the body recognize this blockage, in order to regain its natural balance and circulation.

Can I keep seeing my current doctor/therapist?

Yes! We love working with other therapists in our community and can tailor your care to benefit most from the treatments you are already receiving.
