IS CHIROPRACTIC EFFECTIVE?
The short answer is, “Absolutely!” Chiropractic care is very safe and effective.
There is overwhelming scientific evidence that chiropractic care works. Many controlled and independent studies have shown that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other conditions linked to the spinal cord. Chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems.
Millions of people seek pain relief through chiropractic care. Most patients experience actual relief and improved well-being. They also make reoccurring visits a part of their lifestyle choice.
We take the spine for granted, and a crucial part of your body’s health should by cared for by professionals when mistreated.

An adjustment is the method of treatment used by any chiropractor. We apply controlled and safe pressure to your spine that restores proper motion and position of each vertebra. The procedure has been learned and perfected for several years at chiropractic colleges and in clinical practices across the world.
Adjustments are one of the safest of all health care practices because they don’t require surgery or drugs. And they work!
Results depend on your specific condition and treatment. Your Doctor of Chiropractic can estimate the range of relief you should receive from treatment, and how long it should last.
People often choose chiropractic because they get fast results. Individual cases will vary and chronic conditions obviously need extended, repetitive treatment. However, Workers’ Compensation Board studies have shown that people who seek chiropractic care while suffering low back pain, return to work faster.
Today’s doctors of chiropractic care study and train in a post-secondary college or university for at least seven years. Like, medical or dental students, they must complete undergraduate study before applying for admission to a chiropractic college.
Becoming a chiropractor includes a minimum of 4,500 hours of intense academic study of clinical science and internship training. During their training, he/she will have studied the following:
- Basic sciences: anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, clinical sciences, X-ray interpretation and differential diagnosis.
- Training in the philosophy and practice of chiropractic.
- Clinical internship with emphasis on hands-on practice.
Your chiropractor is a primary contact provider like your regular physician, optometrist or dentist. You do not need a referral from a doctor to seek chiropractic care.
