FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC
We Get A Lot of Questions About Chiropractic. Here Are The Answers!
Does Chiropractic Work?
YES! Chiropractic does work. In fact, it is one of the safest, most effective, non-invasive treatments there is. The reason that Chiropractic is so effective is that Chiropractors work on your body's function. When your body is moving correctly then you will have less pain and more energy.
Chiropractors gently adjust (move) the joints in your spine and extremities that are not moving properly. This lack of movement can be caused by a macro trauma like a car accident or skiing accident. The lack of movement can also be caused by repetitive movement like computer work.
Chiropractic shouldn't hurt. It may be uncomfortable moving joints that have not moved in a while, but this should only be temporary. Some people love getting adjusted, while others don't like it that much, but LOVE how they feel after.
A Chiropractic visit can vary from city to city and office to office. Here at Charlotte Family Chiropractic Clinic, an office visit is $60. This includes an evaluation and any necessary adjustments.
YES!! Chiropractors are great for your overall health and pain in general.
There are so many reasons that people see a Chiropractor. The number one reason is to help with some sort of pain. The most common types of pain that people have when seeking treatment for a Chiropractor are back pain, neck pain, headaches, and chronic pain. There are so many other benefits from Chiropractic care like: sleeping better, more energy, less brain fog, getting sick less often, and overall just feeling better.
Yes, When you have scoliosis there will be uneven pressure on your spine. This means some joints will be moving too much while others are not moving properly. Chiropractic adjustments will help the spine move the best it can and therefore help reduce pain.Does Chiropractic Help With Sciatica?
Yes, sciatica pain usually comes from a problem with the nerves coming from your lower back into your leg. If your spine is compressed, especially if you sit a lot, getting adjusted can help that compression.
Yes. We all have seen what many hours on the computer and your phone can cause. It causes your anterior (muscles in the front) to be super tight and your head to come forward. Bad posture is usually the first symptom before the pain.
Vertigo is a problem with your eyes, ears, or upper part of your neck. If one or more of these sensory input places are not functioning properly you can experience vertigo. The neck is usually overlooked by ENT's and it can be the cause of vertigo. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore movement in the neck, therefore, restoring proper brain function.
Arthritis usually happens when a joint is overused or damaged. Many times in the spine you have joints that move too much to compensate for the joints that don't move enough. If you have proper movement in the spine then you don't have joints that are moving too much and can help prevent or reduce arthritis.
The number one reason that people seek out a Chiropractor is that they have back pain. The reason that Chiropractic adjustments are so effective for back pain is that movement is so important for the discs in your back to get nutrients. Discs have poor vasculature (don't get a lot of blood). The only way for discs to get the necessary nutrients they need for repair and healing is to have movement in your spine. Our bodies are meant to move. If your spine is not moving due to inactivity or injury the discs can not heal. An adjustment can get those joints moving and help get the nutrients those discs need to repair.

NECK PAIN RELIEF AT CHARLOTTE FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC
We prefer not to provide neck pain treatment if we can first address the triggers.
While Dr. Arthur Plesa has in-depth experience treating any cervicalgia cause, no two cases are alike. Your first visit will include a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms, and Dr. Plesa believes listening is the first step to spine health. Together, you'll pinpoint the likely cause of your symptoms and he will advise you on modifying your environment and behavior to help prevent ongoing injury. Once we've developed a wellness program that takes lifestyle and pre-existing health issues into account, only then does Dr. Plesa apply specialized cervical chiropractic treatments.
Dr. Plesa, as a cervical chiropractor specialist, has more training in neurology and upper cervical anatomy than do general chiropractors and a better understanding of neck and back biomechanics than do most medical practitioners. That's why he can provide positive outcomes when others have failed to identify and treat the problem.
