Frequently Asked Questions
Will the treatment hurt?
The majority of our treatments, especially our computerized adjustments, are gentle and comfortable. There can be mild pain when we work with arthritic joints, fibromyalgia cases, and acute injury. In other words, even if you are in severe pain, you can receive our treatments. When we are dealing with scar tissue and old injuries; the treatments involve the breaking down of unhealthy tissues, so the body may feel slight pains. If the practitioner thinks your treatment will be painful, we will let you know before we start.
How long will I have to be a patient?
A typical care program lasts between 6 and 12 weeks. After that, we provide the option of maintenance care to stabilize and preserve the health of the spine. Our ideal relationship with our clients lasts years as they choose us to be part of their healthcare team as are their family doctor, dentist, optometrist and personal trainer.
Does everyone need x-rays?
No. There are guidelines on who needs x-rays and who does not. We follow the recommended guidelines.
That being said, we tend to x-ray more often than not. It allows us to get an in-depth understanding of your spine and provide great care.
If you are pregnant or functioning well, we will not x-ray you.
How quickly can I get an appointment?
Typically, you can get an appointment at one of our clinics within a day or two of your call.
