Common Questions

  • Who are Chiropractic adjustments safe for?

There are thousands of research studies conducted proving how safe the chiropractic adjustment is. There are modified adjustments that can be used for children or elderly patients to provide the most of gentle adjustments to their spines.

  • Other than back & neck pain, what else can Chiropractic help with?

Chiropractic can help with much more than just pain in the spine. We understand that pain is a warning sign that there is something else going on. It is the way that the body can alert you that it needs help. We look at the underlying causes that are contributing to the pain and assess how we can help all the organ systems of your body function better so you can achieve more optimal health. This includes health of your digestive system, immune system, hormone system, neurological system, cardiovascular system and many more.

  • Why do children need Chiropractic care?

Children play hard and can easily injure themselves. Their bones are growing at a rapid rate and need to be properly aligned and to be capable of moving to grow optimally. Even infants can benefit from chiropractic care as they may have undergone trauma during the birthing process. Chiropractic adjustments are modified to their tiny bones and are extremely light, gentle and safe.

  • Will the adjustment hurt?

There is rarely any pain associated with the chiropractic adjustment, and nearly every patient reports relief of pain and tension immediately following an adjustment. If you have any apprehensions or concerns, talk with your Chiropractor and we will be sure to modify the adjustment process so it is as gentle and effective as possible.

  • How can Chiropractic help prevent injuries?

Many musculoskeletal injuries occur as a result of inappropriate tension in the muscles around the bones. When the joints of the bones of the body are moving properly, any excess tension in the muscles relax and the muscles are able to respond to excess motion as needed to prevent some injuries from occurring.


  • How long does it take to experience results?

Some patients enjoy results with their primary complaint quickly, others will notice a slow decline in their symptoms over days or weeks, or potentially longer. It is impossible to predict because ever patient is an individual case and has different underlying contributory factors. Your doctor will be able to give you a better estimate after your initial exam when they have a better understanding of your health and the contributory factors to your condition.

  • How long will I have to keep going to a Chiropractor?

Here at Alpha Life, we will not attempt to sell you a ‘treatment plan’ that locks you in to ongoing care. We treat each patient as an individual and help them recover from their primary condition that they are seeking care for and respect the patient’s decisions on how often they prefer to return for preventative and wellness maintenance care.
