Q: What conditions do Chiropractors treat?
A: Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions. We are especially well known for our expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches, but we also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, such as herniated discs, sciatica, scoliosis, infertility, constipation, dizziness and vertigo, allergies and asthma, pregnancy-related pain, and more. These conditions are often a result of an impact on the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction distant from the region of injury.
Q: Is chiropractic care safe?
A: Absolutely, yes! Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints.
Dr. Grabouski utilizes a gentle adjustment technique called specific prone. Specific prone involves light applications of pressure and is comfortable for patients of all ages and all body types. Unlike older chiropractic techniques, this style of adjusting does not involve twisting or cracking of the spine. It focuses on correcting misalignments and is gentle enough for babies and effective enough to address the most complex cases.
Q: Is chiropractic care appropriate for children?
A: Yes, children benefit greatly from chiropractic care. There is a saying that the best time to start chiropractic care is at birth; the second-best time is now! It is important to have babies and children checked for spinal misalignments early and often as they reach important milestones. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can help with colic, constipation, sleep issues, latching, bedwetting, ear infections, and more!
Q: Why is there sometimes a popping sound when I’m adjusted?
A: Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released.
