WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?
After a the Dr. has gone through consultation, we should have a pretty good idea if we will be able to help and if you are a good candidate for chiropractic. On your first appointment, a full history and spinal exam will be performed to determine the problem. If we find your problem is not one we can we can help, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP
Chiropractic has helped millions of people around the world get out of pain and back to health. Chiropractic is best known for decreasing neck and back pain, however; it can help with so much more. It is a simple, holistic, and natural form of physical medicine based on the bodies ability to heal when the spine is in proper alignment. When the spine is out of alignment (aka subluxated), vital messages from the brain to the body sent through the spinal nerves are inhibited and decreased, thus causing pain, discomfort, and ultimately disease. Freeing up the nervous system through safe and effective adjustments allows the body to heal from the inside out.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Every one is unique and different. Depending on your health history and the severity, a new problem or injury will typically take anywhere from 3-4 visits to correct. Recurring conditions and conditions present for greater than 3 months are typically more stubborn and difficult to manage. Resolution may take 12 or more visits. Because of this, when you have an injury or auto accident be sure to get in as soon as possible to speed your recovery. The sooner you take care of an injury, the faster your body can get back to health.
Length of treatment also depends on your goals and what you want to get out of Chiropractic. Dr. Nate will work with you to develop a plan specific to your needs, whether that is simply pain management or wellness care for a healthier you.

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
According to the Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system), and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.” Chiropractic is a holistic form of physical medicine focused on decreasing nervous interference on the body in order to allow it to health and operate correctly.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF CHIROPRACTIC?
Some individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only neck and back problems because chiropractic treatments are mainly focused on the spinal region. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back pain and neck pain, it’s not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. According to a statement from the Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health.” Our goal at Living Well Family Chiropractic is to optimize health through balancing the body structurally, nutritionally, and emotionally.
