Frequently Asked Questions in Komoka
Are chiropractic adjustments safe?
- Yes. A New Zealand government study found that adjustments are remarkably safe. Chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. A thorough exam can identify the rare person for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited.
Will adjustments make my spine too loose?
- No. Only the spinal joints that are locked up receive adjustments. The occasional spinal joints that move too much, are passed over so weakened muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal.
How many adjustments will I need?
- The number of adjustments varies with each practice member and their individual health goals. Many practice members sense some progress within a week or two of frequent visits. Visits are less often as your spine stabilizes. In difficult cases, complete healing can take months or even years.
Why would a newborn get adjusted?
- Even today’s “natural” childbirth methods can affect an infant’s spine. Colic, unusual crying, poor appetite or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Adjustments are gentle. Knowing exactly where to adjust, no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.
Can I adjust myself?
- No. Some people can make their joints “pop” but that’s not an adjustment! Adjustments are specific and take years to master. Even your Komoka chiropractor must consult a colleague to benefit from chiropractic care.
What does an adjustment feel like?
- Most practice members report a sense of well-being or a feeling of calmness. Since repeated adjustments may be necessary, if adjustments didn't feel good, practice members wouldn't return to finish their care. Chiropractors are experts at making adjustments feel good.
