Frequently Asked Questions

Like other Louisville chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers we hear in our office…

Why Do I Need Chiropractic?

Chiropractors locate and correct misalignments of the spine called subluxations. Chiropractors provide adjustments to the spine with easy, manual thrusts to move the spinal vertebrae back to their normal positions. Spinal adjustments may relieve a spectrum of ailments such as headaches, certain types of migraines, menstrual cramps, allergies, asthma, stomach disorders, spastic colon, and arm, hand, and leg pain that’s due to dysfunction of the neck or lower back.

Who Should See a Chiropractor?

Anyone with a spine should be checked. Think of of your chiropractor like the dentist for your nervous system. It is important to get checked even when you aren’t in pain. Only 10% of our nerves detect pain so often by the time there is a problem it has been occurring for awhile.

Yes, Chiropractic treatment carried out by a properly qualified doctor of chiropractic, can help you.

Do you take insurance?

Yes, we are providers with all major insurance companies and also offer affordable plans for what what your insurance doesn’t support or for those without insurance.

Why would I take my child to a chiropractor?

Many parents question why it is important to visit the chiropractor with their child. There are often many events in a child’s life that may cause spinal and nervous system issues. Many parents have noticed that a chiropractic adjustment has helped with chronic ear infections, colic, bedwetting and much more. Give us a try so your child can reach their potential.

Once you start going to the Chiropractor do you have to keep going?

The answer to this question depends on your health goals. Most of our practice members participate in regular adjustments because they build it into part of their healthy lifestyle just like exercise and and eating well. If you recently lost weight from eating healthy and exercise would you just quit? Your chiropractic care should be viewed the same way. If you only went to the dentist when your teeth hurt you wouldn’t have your teeth for very long would you? The nervous system is the most important system in the body, and should be checked regularly for optimal health.

Do you have to crack the spine?

The “cracking” sound is air within the joints. We don’t “crack” anything but we perform specific spinal adjustments based on your computerized stress analysis, exam and X-rays. We do offer instrument adjustments for our practice members who prefer this method or when we feel it necessary.
