FAQ

How do you know if your body is out of alignment?

Some people are more in tune with these sensations than others.  If you workout or are active you may notice some asymmetries with your strength or your flexibility.  These indicate that something is brewing and it may cause a pain complaint at some point. We recommend that you come in for an adjustment when you feel these imbalances to prevent injuries and pain.

How often should you get adjusted?

When all of the systems are addressed, meaning – joints and muscles, then you’ll most likely need to get adjusted less and less as your treatment progresses.  Eventually you shouldn’t feel the need to be adjusted frequently.  I only feel the need to get adjusted 3-4X/year. 

What do you wear to a chiropractor?

Comfy, stretchy clothes.  When you come to our chiropractic office be ready to work hard! But we always have clean gowns and shorts in case you forgot the appropriate attire.

How long does a chiropractic adjustment last?

In the absence of any other treatment, chiropractic adjustments are not long at all.  Since we support the Chiropractic treatment with soft tissue work and rehabilitative exercises, our appointments last much longer. Most of our sessions last between 30 and 60 minutes.

Do chiropractic adjustments work permanently?

Not typically.  Again the chiropractic adjustment only addresses the joint component. Joints are controlled by muscles so they should also be addressed. This is the reason why we believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to Chiropractic care that also includes soft-tissue techniques and therapeutic exercises.

What cracks when you get a chiropractic adjustment?

The audible “popping” sound during a chiropractic adjustment is the sound of gas bubbles being released into the vacuum that’s created when the joints are manipulated.  When the chiropractic adjustment takes place, it releases the pressure of gasses inside the joint and lets the fluid flow freely to refill the gap. As a result, you get a sense of relief and increased movement. 

Is it better to get a massage or see a chiropractor?

They both have their place and I can’t honestly say that one is better than the other.  Our brand of Chiropractic encompasses many soft tissue techniques and rehabilitation modalities so we have been described as a cross between a Chiropractor, Massage Therapist and Physical Therapist. 

Should you go to a chiropractor or a regular doctor if you experience musculoskeletal pain?

I do believe we are a great first choice for many if not most musculoskeletal complaints.  Our treatments work very fast so if we feel it is beyond our abilities we have a trusted circle of providers with whom we can facilitate a speedy appointment.  The typical medical merry-go-round involves a visit, then a referral to a specialist, then the recommendation to rest or referral for imaging, etc.etc.  We’re talking weeks if not months before you have an answer.  To me that’s a broken system.  When you come to our chiropractic office near Smithtown you will experience much faster relief from your pain and discomfort.
