WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
WHO USES CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Everyone! Millions of people from newborns to senior citizens use chiropractic care as a way to get healthy and stay healthy. If you want to improve your health and get more out of life, chiropractic is for you!
Dr. Ian and Dr. Hayley have been under chiropractic care since childhood, so they personally know the benefits of lifelong chiropractic care. Patients in our office have varied in ages from 41 minutes through 101 years!
DOES AN ADJUSTMENT HURT?
Just the opposite! Chiropractic releases tension in the nervous system that develops over time from the physical, chemical, and emotional stress we experience. Most of the time our patients comment on how wonderful they feel – more energy, less pressure, decreased pain, increased life!
Our doctors are trained in a variety of chiropractic techniques to take care of everyone. If you’re nervous about an adjustment, just let us know and we’ll help you through the process safely and comfortably.
CAN I FEEL IF I HAVE SUBLUXATIONS?
Unfortunately, no. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that cause tension in the nervous system and dis-ease. Sometimes subluxations can cause symptoms like pain, stiffness, weakness, muscle spasms, etc. However, most of the time subluxations are silent and cause decreased function without causing pain.
Less than 10% of the nerves in your entire body sense pain. So even if those aren’t irritated, there’s still 90% that could be affected without you even knowing it. That’s why getting checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic is so important.
IS CHIROPRACTIC SAFE?
WHAT HAPPENS ON A FIRST VISIT?
WILL I GET AN ADJUSTMENT ON MY FIRST VISIT?
WHEN WILL I FEEL BETTER?
I TRIED CHIROPRACTIC, BUT IT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME. WHY SHOULD I TRY IT AGAIN?
Because you deserve to be healthy. Not all chiropractors are the same, and not everyone responds to the same type of chiropractic. There are over 200 named chiropractic techniques, so it’s just about finding the “right fit”.
Shtulman Family Chiropractic uses state-of-the-art equipment to assess the function of your nervous system and specific x-rays to evaluate your spinal health. Don’t let previous experiences prevent you from reaching your health goals. Come see how our office can help you!
ONCE YOU START GOING, DO YOU HAVE TO GO FOREVER?
No, unless you want to continue improving your health.
Think about anything in your life you want to work properly…your car, your house, your teeth, your muscles. You could easily stop taking care of them, too, but you’ll probably experience a gradual decline in how they work. Your spine and nervous system are no different. Many of our practice members include chiropractic care in their lifestyle to be as healthy as possible.
HOW MUCH DOES AN ADJUSTMENT COST?
We always start with a complimentary consultation, a conversation with our doctors to discuss your goals, how our practice works, and all aspects of care – including fees. Chiropractic is best utilized with regular adjustments, therefore we don’t recommend a “per visit” option. It’s similar to exercise…one work out does not get you in shape, and typically neither does one adjustment.
On your second visit to our office, our doctor will spend time with you reviewing the results from your exam and make recommendations to get the best results. That will include a care plan based on the severity of subluxations in your spine and your individual health goals.
