1. What can I do and not do after an adjustment?
For thirty minutes following we prefer you to not do any sudden movement. This is to help the body reset to the new alignment. Exercise, sports, drive go for a run all are acceptable and recommended. Our favorite is if you go for a 15 minute walk. This helps to loosen any spinal muscles that may have been tight prior to the adjustment.
2. Why do I need to keep coming back?
Our Chiropractors focus is reducing neurological and brain stress in you. Once your program is complete we recommend continued care mainly to help your body to function while under stress. If your stress has changed and is substantially lower than your frequency of care will reflect this. Best of all there is no guess work, using our technology we continually monitor changes in your stress. This is a great question and warrants a one on one answer. Please feel free to email us or drop in when you can to talk to one of our doctors.
3. Are you wheelchair accessible?
