How can a Chiropractor help you?

A chiropractor focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neurological and muscular disorders, as well as sports injuries. Chiropractors believe that dysfunction or misalignment of the spine can contribute to various dysfunctions. By restoring the spine’s alignment and reducing pressure, overall health of an individual can be improved.

What to expect at your first Chiropractic Appointment:

At your first visit with your chiropractor, you can expect them to ask questions or have you fill out forms concerning your previous medical history and symptoms. Your chiropractor will then perform an assessment exam. This may include range of motion testing, muscle tone testing, muscle strength testing, and neurological function testing. They may also conduct a posture analysis or movement analysis.

Using the results from this testing, your chiropractor determines the best course of action. They diagnose and come up with an appropriate treatment plan. Your treatment plan may include spinal manipulation, therapeutic modalities, exercise prescriptions, and education regarding your condition and treatment.

The aim of your treatment sessions will be to reduce pain, restore joint function, increase muscular balance, and improve your quality of life and daily activity movements. Frequently, treatment is ongoing or involves 1-3 sessions a week for 3-4 weeks with follow-up appointments.

Commonly asked questions about chiropractic care:

Are chiropractors doctors?

Yes, chiropractors are recognized by the health care legislation as Doctors of Chiropractic. They are regulated under the same Health Professions Act in Alberta as medical doctors, dentists and optometrists.

What’s that cracking sound?

During an adjustment you may hear a “cracking” sound similar to when you crack your knuckles. The reason you hear this is because during an adjustment the joint is separated which releases the pressure in the joint cavity. This is achieved by gas in the synovial fluid being dissolved and released thus forming an air space. This air space then collapses creating that sound.

Is chiropractic safe?

You may feel some mild soreness which should resolve itself quickly. Chiropractic is non-invasive therefore the risk of a serious side effect is very low.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you may require is completely dependant on your individual needs, the nature of the problem, and how you are rehabilitating yourself within your own practices.

Other things you should know:

X-rays are not always required by your chiropractor, however, if your doctor feels it may be of use for your individual treatment plan they can provide a requisition to your preferred imaging associates.
