NW Calgary Chiropractor : FAQ

NW Calgary Chiropractors are often asked… What should I expect from chiropractic care?

Whether you are new to chiropractic care, or a seasoned veteran enjoying its benefits, there is always more to learn about the advantages regular chiropractic treatment offers.

Many people come to see our NW Calgary chiropractors, because they are experiencing a crisis or have a disease or medical condition, and their goal is to receive help for this suffering or life-affecting challenge. Others see us before any health concerns have developed. They are often looking at ways to optimize their health and ensure they express their full health potential. This proactive approach helps avoid problems, just like choosing to maintain your teeth, your car, or eating healthy. This is called wellness care. In either case, chiropractic care enables you to experience your maximum potential and appreciate true wellness.

How often should I get adjusted by the chiropractor?

It really depends on what your health goals are. Our doctors will partner with you to determine what your goals are and then together you will determine a treatment plan to get you back on track. Whether you see us for a particular injury or you are interested in staying well for the rest of your life, we can customize our treatment to suit your needs.

What age should someone start receiving chiropractic care?

Research has shown that vertebral subluxations can start as early as in utero as well as during the birth process. We recommend all newborns be checked for birth trauma as well as to ensure that all neurological milestones are being met as they mature and grow.

How do massage and chiropractic work together?

Often there can be a positive feedback loop with muscle strain around the spine, which can cause vertebral subluxations, which in turn puts pressure on the spinal nerves, which then cause more pain and more muscular tension. This can be a vicious cycle which can sometimes be challenging to break. By managing an issue through massage (which relaxes the muscles and introduces oxygen to the muscles, draining away any toxicity), and chiropractic (which removes any physical restriction thus allowing neural impulses to flow freely through the nervous system), this cycle can be broken effectively. The one-two punch of chiropractic and massage can effectively manage most musculo-skeletal challenges.
