Three Things to Know About Chiropractic

1: It’s Safe, Gentle & Effective

One of the reasons why so many people are seeking chiropractic is they don’t want to rely on prescription or OTC medication which is accompanied by side effects. Chiropractic care is also ideal for those who don’t want to undergo a risky surgery. Unlike medication and surgery, chiropractic has a remarkable track record when it comes to safety.

Our form of chiropractic care is also gentle. Some people think that significant force is required to get an effective adjustment. That’s not true. You don’t have to be twisted, cracked or snapped to get great results. At Van Every Family Chiropractic Center, we use Koren Specific Technique (KST) which uses a handheld tool (the ArthroStim®) that’s very gentle and specific. “We’re asking your body what it needs, what to adjust and where we’re going using a neurological response,” said Dr. Saylor.

This approach is so gentle that it can be used on babies, kids, seniors and pregnant women. “Because the method is incredibly gentle it doesn’t feel like a whole lot but it’s amazing how effective it is,” added Dr. Saylor.

2: A Broad Array of Techniques Are Available

When it comes to chiropractic care, it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, there are more than 250 techniques, all of which can be custom-tailored to meet each person’s unique needs. Some people prefer a manual adjustment and actually like to hear that popping sound. Others, however, don’t want to hear any noise and prefer a light-force approach. That’s the beauty of chiropractic. There are many methods to suit a range of preferences.

So if the technique you’ve experienced in the past isn’t working try something else. Of course, we recommend KST!

3: Chiropractic Isn’t Just for Pain

While pain is what brings many patients to a chiropractor to get relief, we want to look at the nervous system. Pain is a sign that something is going on but we look at your body differently by assessing the underlying nervous system. We want to determine how your body is functioning. It’s important to understand that your nervous system controls everything-from how you feel and function to how you walk, talk and so much more.

Chiropractic care removes interference in the nervous system so your body can perform optimally. Those under chiropractic care can enjoy greater range of motion, improved sleep, less stress, boosted immunity and many other benefits.

Whether you want to have more energy and less pain or want to get your child off to a healthy start in life with pediatric chiropractic care, we can help you with our natural approach.
