To start the video is not edited and no other treatment takes place other than what you see on the video. I do that on purpose so that people can see what actually happens in my office. REAL TIME!. As for the Cervical or Neck Adjustments. That's where the magic of chiropractic lies. Pressure on the Cerebellum from improper misalignments in the cervical (neck) vertebra cause massive imbalances to accrue in the human skeleton. These imbalances magnified by leverage and gravity cause carpal tunnel and plantar fasciitis (to name a a couple of symptoms) I realize that that is my opinion and it goes against all forms of conventional medicine and chiropractic but the proof is in the pudding as they say (watch more of my videos). Hope this helps.

Check out the Frequently Asked Questions

And remember, you can always benefit from a healthy spine no matter what your health status. Help awaken your "inner doctor" by getting a chiropractic spinal checkup and adjustment. Think of a healthy spine as you would good nutrition: important for general good health but especially necessary if you are suffering from any disease or condition.

Q: What causes the sound of an adjustment?

A: Actually, not all adjusting techniques produce the sound associated with "popping knuckles." Some create no sound at all, some a little. Many techniques, however, do create the sound of a spinal "release." The sound is caused by gas rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when the joints were slightly separated.

Q: Is it bad to "crack" your neck or back a lot?

A: The desire to pop the neck or back is caused by tension from a jammed or fixated vertebra, which causes another part of the spine to compensate by moving too much and "popping" a lot. The jammed part should be adjusted by a chiropractor so that the rest of the spinal column will balance and stop being so movable and noisy.

Children

Q: So I am not "adjusting" myself?

A: Cracking or popping your neck gives relief for a while, but soon the urge to pop or crack reappears because the cause of the spinal tension has not been corrected.

Q: Do chiropractors have medical degrees?

A: Chiropractors have Doctor of Chiropractic degrees granted from chiropractic colleges. Chiropractic education and medical education are similar in some respects and different in others because chiropractors do not prescribe drugs and medical doctors do not correct the vertebral subluxation complex.

Q: At what age should chiropractic begin?

A: Newborns have received spinal adjustments especially after difficult or traumatic births.

Q: What about children?

A: The help afforded children through spinal adjustments seems like a "minor miracle." These words or similar phrases are echoed by grateful parents who also didn't know about chiropractic care for children. Children's necks are weak and are easily injured. Children generally respond to care more readily than adults. It is a good idea to have your child checked for nerve interference whether they have outward symptoms or not.

Q: Can a person who had back surgery see a chiropractor?

A: Yes. It is an unfortunate fact that up to half of those who had spinal surgery discover a return of their original symptoms months or years later. They then face the prospect of additional surgery. Chiropractic may help prevent repeated operations.

Surgeons performing surgery

Q: Can chiropractic prevent back surgery?

A: In a majority of cases the answer is a resounding "YES."

Q: Is chiropractic safe?

A: Chiropractic is among the safest of the healing arts. As proof, one merely has to compare malpractice rates between chiropractors and other health professionals. Chiropractors premiums are a small fraction of those for medical doctors, especially orthopedists and surgeons.

Q: Can I go to a chiropractor if I am under medical care?

A: YES. Having your subluxations corrected is important, no matter what other type of health care you are receiving.

Q: Will it hurt?

A: Today's modern chiropractor is so gentle that there should be no discomfort to speak of with any treatment. Of course, if a patient is experiencing muscle spasm, any movement or pressure at all is uncomfortable.

Q: Will I have to keep going to my chiropractor forever?

A: If you go to your dentist and get all of your teeth restored, do you ever go back? Of course. You brush and care for your teeth on a daily basis. Every few months you return for a check-up and receive any necessary care. Why should your spine, which protects your most valuable assets - your health - be any different?

Once your doctor discharges you from regular treatment, it is a good idea to return on perhaps a monthly basis. These periodic adjustments of the spine are cost efficient and pay big dividends. Pressure upon nerves can be likened to something eating away at your joints, organs, and health without you even being aware of it.
