Brantford Chiropractors FAQ

Like other Brantford chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

Can I see a chiropractor & get adjusted when I am pregnant?

Happy childAbsolutely! Experts recommend chiropractic care during pregnancy to assure a safe and easier delivery. Our Brantford chiropractors have special training in chiropractic care for pregnant women. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe, gentle, and effective in restoring optimal health for mother and baby.

How old should a child be before starting chiropractic care?

The younger the better! We recommend getting your baby checked immediately after birth to balance out any stress and strain from the birth process. Even a normal vaginal birth can put abnormal pressure on the baby. A baby should especially be checked if there has been any intervention – epidural, vacuum, forceps, c-section. A chiropractic adjustment for a baby is very, very gentle. We also recommend children be checked along the developmental milestones – at birth, rolling over, sitting, crawling, standing, walking; as well as after any bumps, falls, or traumas.

What is a Vertebral Subluxation?

Your spine is made up of small joints called vertebrae. When these small joints get slightly misaligned, due to repetitive stress, injuries, or sudden falls, the nerves get irritated. When the nerve isn’t functioning correctly it can result in symptoms related to organs, muscles, and systems of the body. Basically, Chiropractic care facilitates natural body function, which typically leads to an expression of better health.

How does a Subluxation occur?

Any major or even minor spinal trauma (a fall, a jolt, a sudden movement) can cause the vertebrae to become misaligned, resulting in a subluxation. This can happen in children due to birth trauma, as well as falls and tumbles in their first five years of life.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Your Doctor of Chiropractic gently adjusts the vertebrae, correcting nerve interference and allowing the body to improve its function, resulting in better health.

Do you have a family plan?

Yes! As Brantford chiropractors we want to make chiropractic care easy and affordable for the whole family. Talk to one of our chiropractic assistants for details.

Once I start chiropractic care, do I have to go forever?

This is a myth. You do not HAVE to go forever, but people CHOOSE to incorporate chiropractic care as part of their wellness lifestyle. They are not “addicted” to chiropractic care as we’ve heard some people comment. They merely know what good health is and what it feels like for the body to be well. Similar to going to the gym or eating well to stay healthy, or going to the dentist for regular check-ups, chiropractic check-ups and care ensures the body is adapting and functioning well to our high stress lifestyle.

How much will it cost?

The recommended schedule of care is determined on a case by case basis. It is determined by how long the problems have been there, how severe the problem is, how much stress is in the person’s life (physical, chemical, & emotional stress). It is important to follow the recommendations of the Doctor to get optimal results. Remember, healing takes time. The exact cost of your customized care plan will be explained on your second visit.
