Chiropractic FAQs

What is a chiropractor?

A Doctor of Chiropractic is a healthcare professional that focuses on the human structure and the FUNCTION of the central nervous system. The job of a chiropractor is to align the spine and pelvis to promote: better movement, improved nerve function, and optimal performance.

Does Chiropractic Care Hurt?

Not at all. Chiropractic adjustments in our office are specific and very gentle. Some patients may experience some soreness after their first couple of visits similar to going to the gym or doing a new exercise ("the good sore"). We use modern technology and traditional methods to help people over 100 years old, children, infants, and people of all ages and health issues.

How often do I need to see a chiropractor?

Everyone is different and each person who seeks our care has different goals. Some patients are seen for a few visits to put the fire out. Some patients are seen for a longer period to fix the problem. Some patients are seen for maintenance care to keep their bodies aligned and working optimally. Each option is an individual decision that you make over time. Bottom line, your body, your health, YOUR DECISION!

Are chiropractors doctors?

Yes! Chiropractors receive their Doctor of Chiropractic degree after 8 years of undergraduate and postgraduate studies along with FIVE national board exams. The average chiropractor takes 4600+ hours of classroom study. (Medical doctors less than 4000 hours)

What is the history of chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care was discovered in 1895 (30 years prior to the medical profession) when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted Harvey Lillard. Lillard lost his hearing at age 6 after falling off of his horse and hearing a pop. 30 years later he received an adjustment that not only helped his upper back pain, but also restored his hearing!

Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

ABSOLUTELY. We specialize in pediatric chiropractic because we understand that spinal alignment is VITAL for proper organ and muscle function. Well-adjusted children become well-adjusted adults. Pediatricians refer children of all ages to our office for wellness visits or conditions like colic, ear infections, reflux, headaches, scoliosis, poor posture constipation, ADD/ADHD, and pain.

Are chiropractors safe?

YES!! Just look at our malpractice rates... Doctors of Chiropractic typically pay LESS than $3,000 per year for malpractice due to the low frequency of negative outcomes, while medical doctors pay $50,000-$250,000 per year!

We Have Amazing Patients!

"For the first time in years, I feel hopeful about my ability to be helped with my pain. I’ve seen many practitioners in many fields and none were as thorough and explicit about what their part is in my recovery and supportive of what my part is. Their motto is “expect miracles” and I’m beginning to believe it’s true!"

June L.

"The genuine warmth and smiles of the staff, Dr. Cameron and Dr. Paterna made me feel great without anything else. After Dr. Paterna adjusted me I felt even better! I could tell he and Dr. Cameron were genuinely listening to me and they didn’t make me feel rushed. Instead, they made me feel heard and that impressed me. Definitely coming back!"

Genise S.

"Great “bedside manner”. I walked in with low expectations because of the duration of injuries I’ve sustained but I left with high hopes. I also feel confident that the treatment plan will help a great deal. Never felt rushed and the environment was calm. I usually dislike going to doctor’s appointments because they’re usually stressful but this visit was not. 10/10 would recommend."

Alexus M.

"I have gone to every doctor I can think of for the pain in my back and haven’t found relief. I am hoping and believing that this is the treatment I need to get to the source of my problem. I was impressed with the thoroughness of Dr. Paterna”s evaluation of my issues and I am looking forward to feeling better. Thank you!"
