Faqs

What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself. It is possible to turn or bend in certain ways to create a "popping sound", like the sound that sometimes accompanies a chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of join manipulation is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable area of the spine even more so.
Through sports and even regular activity, the spine can become misaligned and the neuromuscular system unbalanced. Chiropractic care can help the spine and the nervous system rebalance themselves.

Can I speed the healing process?
While there aren't any shortcuts to speed your body's natural healing process, there's a lot you can do to reduce the stresses on your body, and improve your chances of a quick recovery. Practice correct sitting and lifting techniques. Do the specific exercises that your doctor recommends to strengthen weak or imbalanced muscles which support the spine. Get the rest your body needs. Avoid stomach sleeping. Eat a balanced diet (heavy on the vegetables and fruits) so you get the best nutrition you can, and take appropriate supplements. Most importantly, keep your appointments and follow your doctor's specific recommendations for optimum results.

What types of injuries can chiropractic treat?
At In Line Chiropractic, we treat spinal conditions such as sprains/strains, subluxations, headaches, disc conditions, sciatica and arthritis. We specialize in both sports injuries and work-related conditions such as tennis elbow, ankle sprains, bursitis, rotator cuff injuries, plantar fascitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Do I have a slipped disc?
Technically, a disc can't "slip". The disc is a cartilage-type pad between spinal bones or vertebrae. Discs act as spacers and shock-absorbers for the spine. A jelly-like center in contained by outer fibrous layers, like tree rings. Because of the way each disc is attached to the vertebrae above and below, a disc cannot "slip". However, injury to the spine can cause discs to tear, bulge, herniated, or worse, rupture. This can be quite painful, as the soft center of the disc leaks, putting pressure on the adjacent nerve roots and spinal cord.
