Let me start off by saying that chiropractic, itself, is incredibly safe. But there is more to the profession than just spinal manipulations. The way in which chiropractors choose to practice can place a patient in harms way. (more…)
Chiropractors go through a very rigorous and thorough educational program that varies by State. A minimum of 6 years is required, though many states require 8 years. At least 4 years are on the graduate level, attaining a doctorate degree in Chiropractic. Chiropractors are real doctors in the sense that they have a doctorate, are a license health care professional, and are highly trained in their specialty; but they are not medical doctors, or MD’s. Chiropractors are trained to treat the body naturally, without the use of drugs or medicine.

Today, we’re going to talk about Autism. I’d venture the guess that most people in today’s society have heard of autism or have a basic understanding what it is, but this wasn’t always so. Today however, due to social media and the hotly debated subject of vaccines, virtually everyone knows about or has heard of autism.
Incidence of autism was relatively rare (depending on how you look at it) before the 1990s with only 1 in every 2325 children born identified as being autistic. But in the early 90s the incidence of autism suddenly exploded with 1 in 500 US children developing autism. Today, 20 years later, 1 in 150 infants are born with some sort of brain development disorder. That’s a 600% increase, and other countries are experiencing a similar problem. Objectors claim that the raise in autism is only due to increased public awareness of autism, and that is why it is being diagnosed so frequently, but there’s one major flaw in this reasoning.

Although chiropractors care for more than just back pain, many patients visit chiropractors looking for relief from this pervasive condition. In fact, 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time. The results of most studies comparing chiropractic to other forms of treatment for back pain, are very favorable to chiropractic. Chiropractic is more effective, less costly, and safer than most other treatments for back pain, even the most conservative options. In most cases, surgery can be avoided with proper chiropractic care. (more…)
The hands-on nature of the chiropractic treatment is essentially what requires patients to visit the chiropractor a number of times. To be treated by a chiropractor, a patient needs to be in his or her office. In contrast, a course of treatment from medical doctors often involves a pre-established plan that is conducted at home (i.e. taking a course of antibiotics once a day for a couple of weeks). (more…)
We have treated many hundreds of whiplash injuries. We are experts in whiplash treatment and have specialized equipment specifically for treating these injuries and rehabilitating the neck (cervical spine) to its original health and curvature.
The injury itself is non-specific, so it can mean something different in two different people. Typically, it involves an injury to either the muscles, tendons, ligaments or discs, or a combination thereof. As there is a vast network of ligaments and muscles, an individual exam is necessary to determine the specific injury, the extend of the injury, and the correct course of treatment needed. (more…)
A referral is usually not needed to see a doctor of chiropractic (DC); however, your health plan may have specific referral requirements. You can contact your insurance company directly to find out if a referral is needed, or you can contact us and we will check your insurance benefits for you. Most plans allow you to just call and schedule an appointment with a Chiropractor, without a referral. (more…)
