Naperville Chiropractors :: FAQ

Like other Naperville, IL chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

Does Chiropractic Treatment Hurt?

Frequently Asked Questions Apple

Naperville Chiropractors are often asked…Will my insurance cover chiropractic?

Chiropractic treatments are performed utilizing instruments as well as by hand. Many people feel pressure followed by a sense of relief. The process of performing an adjustment of the spine or extremities is based upon physics and an in depth knowledge of the anatomy and deep structures of the joints and involved tissues. The correction takes place when the joint is realigned into a more normal position as it relates to nerves and muscles. Some people may experience soreness or tenderness around the treated area for a short period of time and this usually resolves with the use of ice or heat.

Do I have to keep coming back?

This is a question frequently heard in chiropractic offices. My answer to this question is: your treatment and health is always controlled by the patient. A recommended treatment schedule will be prescribed for your condition, which has been shown to effectively treat your diagnosis. The schedule may range from several visits to a more extensive treatment protocol depending on the severity of your condition and the length of time that you have suffered with your ailment. A typical treatment schedule ranges between 12 to 14 visits over the course of 4 to 6 weeks.

Can I adjust myself?

Many young athletes as well as adults have learned to “mobilize” or “pop” there spine or joints. The audible sound created when you mobilize your joints is called a cavitation phenomenon. It is thought to be a release of Nitrogen Gas from the surrounding joint tissue into the negative pressure of the joint capsule as the joint is separated or repositioned. THIS IS NOT A JOINT CORRECTION! Many years of experience and training occur in order to facilitate the normal correction of joint problems, by a Chiropractor. If you “POP” your joints there is a chance that you may be causing damage by moving the joint in the incorrect direction….as your mother always told you, “Don’t pop your knuckles, they will make them BIG when you get Older!

Is Chiropractic Scientific and does the Medical Profession recognize this treatment as affective?

Most people don’t realize that our training as Chiropractors is almost identical to that of the medical profession for the first two years. After the initial training in everything from Anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, radiology, histology, neurology, pharmacology etc., we specialize in our field of expertise and medical doctors specialize in theirs. There are numerous Medical studies in the efficacy of Chiropractic Manipulation just as there is in the medical arena for other specialties and Chiropractic treatment has been shown repeatedly to be a low cost, highly efficient form of conservative care for many different conditions ranging from low back pain, whiplash, sprains and strains as well as more serious conditions such as herniated disks and rehabilitation of spinal and mechanical joint diseases.
