Frequently Asked Questions about Chiropractic Care

Our Chiropractor in Milwaukie, OR Answers Your Chiropractic Questions

What is a subluxation?

A subluxation is when a vertebra has become misaligned. This can result in neck pain or back pain.

How does spinal misalignment affect the body? 

Spinal misalignment affects the body both directly and peripherally. You may be experiencing lower back pain, but also headaches, shoulder pain or mood concerns. These may all be a result of spinal misalignment.

How does my chiropractor adjust my spine?

First, our chiropractor in Milwaukie evaluates your situation. Then, usually lying in a therapeutic position, our chiropractor will apply a personalized amount of decompressive force or perform a manual adjustment to realign your subluxation.

What conditions can chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic is a lifestyle and can treat general wellness overall. The common concerns we see are whiplash from auto injuries in Milwaukie, OR where we offer auto injury treatment, low back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, sports and recreational injuries, arthritic pain and work-related injuries.

How do I know my chiropractor is qualified?

Our OR chiropractor has completed all necessary training to be qualified to see patients and goes above and beyond to complete additional training to stay on top of the latest chiropractic techniques.

I heard a popping noise. What just happened? 

Popping is merely air transitioning when subluxation is relieved. This does not cause any harm and is a normal part of the adjustment process.

Can children receive chiropractic care?

Absolutely! We suggest bringing your children from infancy to prevent spinal misalignment from occurring in the first place. Chiropractic care can also help with growing pains and strengthen the immune system.

Is chiropractic care covered by my insurance?

In most cases, chiropractic care is covered by insurance. We can help you determine at your visit if your care with us will be covered.
