Do You Have Questions?

In the last twelve years, the All American Healthcare chiropractors and medical staff have helped thousands of patients and love answering your questions.

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. The vertebrae, which protect the brain and nervous system, when misaligned can result in the malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body.

Chiropractic works by restoring your inborn ability to be healthy. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae is removed, allowing optimal nervous system function and normal health.

According to WebMD, Chiropractic is an approach to health care that uses spinal manipulation to relieve pain. It is most often used for back or neck pain. It can be used for headaches or for pain in the back, neck, arms or legs. Most doctors of chiropractic (chiropractors) take a natural approach to promoting health through lifestyle changes, nutrition, and exercise.

Your first visit to a chiropractor will include-

  • A health history. You will probably fill out a form of questions about your health. The chiropractor may also ask additional questions, such as whether you have headaches or migraines or sleeping problems. He or she may also ask you about your diet and your activity level.
  • A physical exam. The chiropractor may check your posture, looking for things that aren’t normal, such as one shoulder or hip that is higher than the other. The exam may also include a muscle test. This involves pressing an arm or leg against the chiropractor’s hand to test strength. You may also walk a short distance so that the chiropractor can check how you walk or other arm or leg movements.

You may also have an X-ray of your spine.

When the chiropractor has all the information, it’s time to sit down with you and talk about treatment. If the treatment plan includes spinal manipulation, you could have it the same day or at a later appointment.

A Doctor of Chiropractic is a primary contact physician. This means you do not need a referral. 

No, however, due to improved nerve system function, chiropractic care is successful with a wide variety of health problems, even those that are not necessarily considered “back” problems. With a properly functioning nerve system, the body’s natural healing capacity can improve a variety of health problems.

Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle.

Chiropractors are being recognized to admit and treat patients in hospitals and to use outpatient clinical facilities (such as labs, x-rays, etc.) for their non-hospitalized patients.  Hospital privileges were first granted in 1983.

Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved.
