Suntken Family Chiropractic Answers Common Questions

Are you thinking about beginning chiropractic care? Suntken Family Chiropractic is here to tell you what you need to know. Let us address some of the common questions about this tried and true health care alternative!

Once I visit the chiropractor, will I always have to go?

Not necessarily. However, like any other health habit, maintaining results requires consistency. Do you always have to brush your teeth? No, but if you want them to remain in tip-top shape, you do. The same idea goes for chiropractic care!

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

No. While some patients experience soreness following their appointments, chiropractic adjustments do not result in lasting pain.

Can chiropractic care cure everything?

Chiropractic care certainly does not cure everything. It does, however, aid in a healthy nervous system. The healthier the nervous system, the fewer unwanted symptoms that arise.

Why would I get my young child or newborn baby adjusted?

Many people are unaware of the benefits that chiropractic care can pose in children, including infants.

As children are constantly growing and developing, it is crucial that their little nervous systems are able to flow freely. To ensure this, we must check spinal health. In infants, chiropractic care has been known to reverse the effects of the natural trauma of labor and delivery.

Can chiropractic care help with colic?

Yes! Babies can sense when there is something wrong in their bodies. If there is irritation in their nervous system, they are going to be unhappy. If we can reduce that irritation, better known as misalignments, we can decrease overall pain and discomfort.

Is chiropractic care covered by insurance?

Most insurance plans offer some form of chiropractic coverage. It varies company to company. Our practice is glad to check your benefits prior to beginning care.

Do I need a referral to become a chiropractic patient?

No. Chiropractors are primary care providers. You are free to come in and see if your condition may benefit from chiropractic care.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes. We do not hesitate to refer patients out when we are unsure if chiropractic care is right for their condition. Rest assured, we have your best interest at heart!

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Most likely, yes. There are rare occasions, however, that further evaluation is necessary prior to performing your initial adjustment.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes. Of course, it is dependent on your consultation and physical examination. We will use your X-ray to make sure chiropractic care is right for your condition. If you are concerned, however, we are happy to speak with you further.
