How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care helps your body heal itself by removing interference from the nervous system. Your body has an innate ability to heal and does so through the nervous system. Any interference with the nervous system causes the body to not function the way it was designed to can lead to decreased performance, disease, and breakdown.

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

The sound that is typically associated with an adjustment is called “cavitation” and occurs when a joint is moved and tiny air bubbles form in the fluid that surrounds a joint. Although many patients find this noise satisfying, there is no evidence suggesting an adjustment that makes a noise is any more effective than one that does not.

At Cornerstone Chiropractic we have a variety of techniques that we use, and depending on patient preference, we can avoid adjustments that create noise if that is a concern.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Yes, a vast majority of insurance companies cover chiropractic visits and Cornerstone Chiropractic is in-network with several. As a courtesy, we will verify your benefits for you and explain how the process works.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is considered to be extremely safe when compared to other healthcare options. It is a free profession that works with the body to allow natural healing. The Journal of Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy found no significant association between chiropractic care and the risk of stroke.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Chiropractic is safe and effective during pregnancy. People who undergo regular chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy have, on average, 25% shorter labor times. Cornerstone Chiropractic has cared for hundreds of pregnant patients over the years and is one of the largest pediatric practices in the area.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

You cannot get addicted to chiropractic care and getting adjusted does not make you need to get treatment more often. Think of it like eating right, it does not form an addiction but you appreciate feeling good and want to continue.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes, children have nervous systems just like adults. With kids spending more time than ever on technology, there is an increase in neck problems that have lead to the phrase “text neck.” Chiropractic care can help avoid the effects of poor posture and help with focus, digestion, and ear infections.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

On average 8 years. Both doctors at Cornerstone Chiropractic completed undergraduate degrees before enrolling at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. The curriculum at Palmer is a 10-trimester program that, if done year-round, can be completed in 3.5 years.

Can I See A Chiropractor If I've Had Back Surgery?

Yes, we have several patients who have had back surgeries ranging from discectomies to multi-level fusions. We complete a thorough history and exam that often includes x-rays as a way to minimize risk to the patient.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

The time it takes to experience relief varies on a case by case basis. After completing a thorough history and exam, the doctor will discuss with your outcomes and options that include how long, how often, and how much treatment will be needed.
