What is a chiropractor?

A specialist who has a main focus on the spine and nervous system. We adjust the spine to remove any compression of the spine and nerve roots. This will result in better function of the nervous system and reduce musculoskeletal complaints (neck pain, back pain, tension headaches). We believe in a conservative (non-surgical) hands-on approach to treating these disorders.

What is the history of chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care has been a regulated health care specialty in the United States for more than 100 years.In 1895, Daniel David Palmer gave the first chiropractic adjustment. In 1897, Dr. Palmer established the first chiropractic school in Davenport, Iowa. From that point forward, Dr. Palmer and colleagues continued to refine chiropractic manual adjustment techniques and study its effect on pain and function.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Every case is different and everyone’s health is very unique. We will not know how many visits you will need before we have had a chance to look at your history, understand your goals and perform our evaluations.

How much does a chiropractic care cost?

Every person and every case is different. We will not know how much it will cost until the doctors have a chance to evaluate your findings, history and determine what care you will need. It is important for us to keep care affordable.

What does a chiropractor treat?

Common issues include most musculoskeletal complaints such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. As a neurologically based chiropractor, we focus on the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord and spinal nerve roots). A result of removing nerve compression can help with issues like neuropathy in the legs or arms and can contribute to better overall body function.

Can I get chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Absolutely! In fact, our practice specializes in prenatal care. Research shows that chiropractic care can reduce labor pains and delivery times by up to 60%. Care during pregnancy can greatly reduce the risk of low back pain and also help prepare the body for delivery.

What type of education and training do chiropractors have?

Chiropractic education requires at least 4 years of professional study and includes a 4-year undergraduate/college prerequisite in most states. We take anywhere from three and a half to five years to complete our education and require a minimum of 4,200 instructional hours. To be licensed in Michigan, we also need to have passed Part 1-4 National Boards of Chiropractic.
