What Happens at the Chiropractor?

Much like when visiting any other health center, our chiropractors have unique facilities for their line of work such as activators, special drop tables and hands on massage. The initial consultation is quite similar to other health providers but what you may find a little different is the chiropractic treatment table. The tables are used to examine patient’s positioning and movement during spinal adjustments that assist in the chiropractic treatment. The doctor will ask questions such as when you started experiencing pain and take an x-ray for further clarification of your condition. The procedures are registration, physical examination, treatment and follow-up of the patient’s health.

The Crack. What is the Pop Sound? Do Adjustments Hurt? And is it Safe?

There is very little risk in spinal joint manipulation. Chiropractors in Australia train for a minimum of 5 years in university to perform the movements safely and effectively. The crack people worry about isn’t dangerous, and no we do not crack bones or crack your spine. The pop noise you hear is gas being released from the joint that was “stuck” as the joint opens up. Think of it like pulling apart two surfaces that have been stuck together by a sticky substance – when they release, you hear a pop.

The result of getting that joint to move one of “relief”. Most people feel better almost immediately.

How Long Does the Chiropractor treatment take?

The intensity of the pain and deterioration of the spinal joints will determine how long the treatment will take. Also depends on how recent the injury was. Mostly within one to two weeks from the beginning of the chiropractic treatment program for cases that are noncomplex musculoskeletal conditions. That period is enough for the patient to feel a 40% to 80% reduction in pain. In worse cases during the chiropractic care, a normally the treatment program is thrice per week that goes for nearly a month, and re-evaluation follows.
