Does chiropractic care hurt?
Well-skilled practitioners are able to carry out chiropractic adjustments with little, if any, pain. Both Dr. Kennedy and Dr. Armour are trained to provide gentle chiropractic adjustments tailored to the individual patient and will be able to predict what your recovery may feel like once they have met and consulted with you in person.
Can anyone be treated by a chiropractor?
Everyone can be evaluated by a chiropractor, but not everyone can be treated. Such exceptions might include patients with progressive neurological damage and other conditions that might not be helped by chiropractic treatment. Patients with osteoporosis may not be appropriate for spinal manipulation, but may be candidates for more gentle techniques. Meeting with a chiropractor for evaluation would be the best way to decide whether or not chiropractic care is right for you.
Both Doctor Kennedy and Doctor Armour are trained to perform a full neuro-musculoskeletal assessment to determine a safe and effective treatment tailored to the individual patient’s needs and situation.
Is spinal manipulation safe?
Chiropractic treatments generally carry a very low risk of complication. A small percentage of patients will experience short-term (24 hours or less) of local soreness following the initial adjustment. This may represent short-term muscle tension or low-grade inflammation from the treatment.
