Whether you’ve been a patient of ours for years or are anticipating your first appointment for chiropractic in Vancouver WA, you probably have a few questions you’ve wanted to ask. In this blog post, we’ll cover some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. If you have a question not answered here, don’t be afraid to ask — contact us today or leave a comment o this post and we may address it in a future blog post!
Question: What conditions do you treat?
Answer: While chiropractic clinics like ours in Vancouver are most commonly associated with back pain, headaches and neck pain, our practice doesn’t end there! We also care for patients with musculoskeletal system disorders (these affect the ligaments, joints and muscles) and those with a wide range of injuries. The benefits of our treatments also extend to more general health issues because the structure of our bodies greatly impacts our overall functioning and well-being. We also counsel patients on healthy habits, lifestyle modification, diet, exercise and nutrition.
Question: Is chiropractic care OK for kids?
Answer: Yes!! Our youngest patients can benefit greatly from our services. Kids tend to be more physically active than adults, putting them at greater risk for injuries that cause stiffness, discomfort, soreness and back or neck pain. Our team is experienced at treating young patients, and we adapt our care to the individual patient.
Question: Will I hear a popping sound when my joints are adjusted?
Answer: You might!! Manipulating or adjusting joints can cause a gas bubble to be released between the joints. That’s the popping sound you may hear. It is caused when the pressure within the joint changes, but the process isn’t uncomfortable.
Question: How many sessions will I need?
Answer: We’ll talk about this at your first visit, but we promise to give you the care you need without unneeded visits. We do everything we can to make you feel better and function better as fast as possible. We’ll also talk about a follow-up plan that may include changing aspects of your lifestyle or other ways to avoid future problems.
