               There are many reasons why people seek Chiropractic. Some are curious, some are excited, some are determined and some are just plain exhausted.  Regardless of the motivations to begin care, there are also many people who stay home and are not receiving the care they so desperately need.  They are uncertain because chiropractic seems so different and even scary compared to what they already know or do.  

            Sometimes people don’t do things because they think they won’t like it or they have actually experienced something they don’t like. Much of the time they have heard things second hand from someone else that may not even be true or they have had a bad experience that was simply unnecessary.

            There are different ways to remove nerve interference with different chiropractic techniques much like there are different ways to get in shape through different forms of working out. Whether it is weight lifting, running, swimming or a specific sporting activity, there is a way for everyone to become fit. There are chiropractic adjustments that are manual and more traditional and there are also other techniques that use such low force, they can barely be felt at the point of contact.

            Spinal adjustments can be done on pregnant women, infants, elderly and the injured. They can be done on people who are missing limbs or organs, those who have had surgery and those who can’t even lay down.  There is virtually no reason for someone not to receive chiropractic care unless they are having an immediate emergency crisis, and then they are able to start care as soon as they are stable again.  

            One concern by those in pain is if the adjustment is going to hurt.  The great news is that the adjusting contact point is rarely the same area where the pain is and even if it was, very low force adjustments can be done virtually anywhere without discomfort of any kind.  

            Other concerns may be compromising positions or having invasive exams.
