FAQ

Q: Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

A: No! Often there is a satisfying feeling with an adjustment. Some complain of soreness, but this is a positive response by the body!

Q: Once you begin going to a chiropractor, do you have to continue going forever?

A: This answer is totally dependent on what the patient wants, and whether or not they have a long or short term goal on health. Chiropractic can be an effective short term pain killer without the side effects, but is not recommended! On the other hand if your committed to long term health care then the answer is simply, yes! When you understand the importance of the central nervous system and the role it plays in regulating your body, then you'll understand how important it is for the central nervous system to be free of any interference! Just think of the life span of your vehicle if you did not keep up the maintenance, and apply it to yourself!

Q: I don't have any neck or back pain, why should I have my spine checked?

A: For the same reason you have a dental check up when you don't have a toothache. For the same reason you have your car serviced when it isn't running badly. Because it is easier and more economical to catch small problems before they become big problems.

Q: Will chiropractic adjustment's loosen my spine?

A: No! If your spine is subluxated, it should be corrected. Not to do so is a serious health liabilility. Scientifically delivered adjustments based on proper analysis correct subluxations and prevent spinal degeneration. What will you do when your spine wears out?

Q: Can my child benefit from chiropractic!

A: Absolutely! Children respond dramatically to chiropractic care. Children are just as susceptible to subluxation as adults, and can greatly benefit from regular chiropractic care!

Q: How do you get a subluxation?

A: There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes could include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions and improper lifting. Emotions such as grief, anger and fear can cause subluxations. Chemical causes could include alcohol, drugs, pollution and poor diet!

Q: Can subluxation clear up on their own?

A: Sometime. Today's hectic lifestyles are a constant source of subluxations. Fortunately, our bodies have the ability to self-correct many of these problems as we bend and stretch, or when we sleep at night. When subluxations don't resolve, you need to see a chiropractic doctor!

Q: How do I know if I have a subluxation?

A: You can have subluxations and not even know it. Like the early stages of tooth decay, or cancer, subluxations can be present before warning signs appear. The results of a thorough examination can show the location and severity of subluxations you may have.

Q: Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

A: Yes, a New Zealand government study found that adjustments are "remarkably safe." By avoiding drugs and risky surgery, chiropractic care enjoys an excellent track record. Compare the statistics. Adjustments are about 100 times safer than taking an over-the-counter pain reliever

Q: How long until I'll feel better?

A: Some patients experience almost instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process. How long have you had our problem? Are you keeping your appointments? Are you getting the proper rest, exercise and nutrition? Do you smoke? Are you in otherwise good condition? Within a short period of time, most patients sense enough progress to fully carry out their doctor's recommendations.

Q: What if my policy doesn't cover chiropractic?

A: Your health affects everything you do and everyone you know. It is your most valuable possession. Yet, each of us is free to place a different value on our health. It's convenient when an insurance company or third party helps pay the bill. But be careful! Don't allow the profit motive of a huge corporation to make the decision for you. These same corporations believe health is based on how you feel. Few policies cover wellness or preventative care. If you want what's best don't depend upon their limited vision. With visits less frequent during the later stage of your recovery, you'll find continued care affordable.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was in a very serious car accident October of 2004. I visited an MD & Neurologist for almost a year and had very little improvement even w/ physical therapy. When Dr. Sorrell opened his practice nearby I stopped in. Within a few weeks I could move my shoulders and neck farther than I had for over a year.I am now back at the gym, swimming. And I don't have a headache every day. I recommend trying chiropractic. It works for me."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
