Q: What are a chiropractor’s qualifications?
A: Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misaligned spinal vertebra are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out to the muscles, organs and glands of the body. Learning to properly and safely correct these misalignment and restore normal bodily function requires years of study and practice. Dr Barth studied at Cleveland University-KC where he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic in four years while graduating Summa Cum Luade.
Q: Why do patients seek chiropractic care?
A: Although several patient conditions have responded favorably to spinal care like sciatica, digestive troubles, menstrual problems, headaches or migraines, constipation, erectile dysfunction, whiplash, difficulty breathing, back pain, colic, and many more it is important to understand that the goal of chiropractic isn’t to treat the disease or condition but rather to enhance the patient’s health through the reduction of spinal nerve irritation.
Q: Are spinal adjustments safe?
A: Yes, they are very safe. Chiropractic care is, in fact, so safe that we are amongst the lowest malpractice rates in the entire healthcare industry. There are thousands of published studies proving chiropractic’s safety and effectiveness. Our specialized evaluation and treatment techniques produce optimal results without dangerous invasive procedures or highly addictive drugs.
Q: What is the popping sound?
A: The popping noise or cavitation you may hear during a chiropractic adjustment is nothing more than the release of gases in the joint. This cavitation may or may not be heard during each adjustment. Your doctor will be able to distinguish when the subluxated joint has increased motion after each adjustment weather there is a sound or not.
