Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic Services

1. What Should I Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Your first visit will involve a detailed medical history discussion and comprehensive physical examination, focusing on your spine and musculoskeletal system. The chiropractor will then tailor the adjustment based on your needs. Adjustments involve applying controlled force to specific joints, typically using hands or specialized instruments, to improve their mobility and reduce misalignment. You might hear a "popping" or "cracking" sound, which is usually harmless gas bubbles releasing from the joint. Some minor discomfort is possible after the adjustment, but most patients feel immediate relief from aches and stiffness.

2. What is a full body adjustment?

A full body adjustment doesn't necessarily mean every single joint in your body gets adjusted. Instead, the chiropractor focuses on key areas, usually the spine, pelvis, and extremities, based on your individual needs and presenting issues. The goal is to improve overall alignment and mobility throughout your body.

3. How often should a chiropractor adjust you?

Adjustment frequency depends on your needs and goals. Initially, adjustments may be more frequent to address acute pain or misalignment. As your condition improves, adjustments may become less frequent, transitioning to a maintenance schedule, or ceasing altogether. Your Moreau Physical Therapy chiropractor will recommend a personalized chiropractor treatment schedule based on your progress.

4. How do you know if your body is out of alignment?

Common signs of misalignment include chronic pain, muscle tension, headaches, joint stiffness, fatigue, and decreased range of motion. However, these symptoms can also have other causes. A comprehensive physical examination by a qualified chiropractor is the best way to determine if misalignment is contributing to your issues.

5. What happens when a chiropractor cracks your neck?

The "cracking" sound during a neck adjustment is caused by gas bubbles releasing from the facet joints in your spine. This quick release of pressure can help improve joint mobility and reduce stiffness.
