FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...
What does an adjustment feel like? I’m scared of getting ‘cracked’.
It is not uncommon to hear a slight noise from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint which is a perfectly normal occurrence, but we appreciate that some practice members would prefer different styles of adjusting. Make sure you speak to your chiropractor about any concerns you may have, as we have many techniques available.
How will I feel after an adjustment?
Great! Most people experience more energy, less discomfort, more flexibility, and an overall feeling of enhanced well-being. Occasionally, you may be slightly sore or tired as your body adapts to the changes occurring. The Doctors will monitor your progress very closely to ensure maximal comfort during this time of change. In some patients with long-term chronic conditions, realigning the spine may also cause the muscles around the spine to be sore afterwards. This is only temporary, until the weakened muscles are strengthened. This is comparable to the discomfort felt after a good work out at the gym.
I think my problem is muscular, can you still help me?
Absolutely. The nervous system controls the tension of your muscles so it is important to get this functioning at it’s best. Most people find that once they get adjusted their muscles begin to relax naturally as their spine and nerves begin to function normally again. The chiropractors use various techniques that affect both the spine and musculature, and we also have massage therapists, acupuncturists and physiotherapists we refer to when required.
How Long Does It Take To Become A Chiropractor?
There are literally thousands of research studies done on chiropractic. Every government inquiry into the safety, effectiveness and cost effectiveness of chiropractic have all been very favourable and chiropractors are in Australia are registered with the title “Dr.” on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. It takes 5 years at university to become a chiropractor.
Don’t medical doctors discourage methods like Chiropractic?
There was a time when doctors recommended their patients to stick to conventional treatments, but this has changed much today. Many doctors have opened up to the scientific benefits of chiropractic, and will not hesitate in making referrals to chiropractors when needed. These are doctors who prioritize the welfare of their patients, and will not stop them from exploring chiropractic if it is the most appropriate treatment. As more patients seek alternatives to conventional drugs and surgery, more doctors are referring them to chiropractors as well. This is particularly true now that lifestyle related illnesses have become the biggest tax on our healthcare system. Doctors are recognizing that in most cases the best treatments for these are not quick fix surgeries and medications, but lifestyle changes that offer long term solutions.
