FAQS

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "GENTLE CHIROPRACTIC CARE"? IS THERE REALLY NO CRACKING?

Yes! At our clinic we use only gentle methods. There's no cracking, twisting or turning of the spine. Our youngest patient was only 36 hours old for her first adjustment. Our eldest patient was 92. The same gentle methods that are used with the very young and the very experienced are used with everyone here. That's why we call it Gentle Family Chiropractic!

DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL?

Maybe. If you have extended health insurance through your work, they may require you to have a doctor's referral to get covered. Please call your insurance prior to booking your appointment so you don't have a surprise.

HOW OFTEN WILL I HAVE TO GO?

That depends on your individual situation. Most patients who come in have never seen a chiropractor before. They usually start at a couple times a week for a few weeks. Patients who are transferring from another chiropractor may have a different schedule.

ONCE I START GOING TO A CHIROPRACTOR, WILL I HAVE TO GO FOREVER?

No! It is always your choice when you start AND stop chiropractic care. Some people see a chiropractor for a particular condition or symptom and when they are feeling better, they stop. Other people continue coming in for wellness (aka maintenance) chiropractic care after their symptoms are gone because they find it helps control their stress, improve their sleep and enhance their lifestyles. Your chiropractic care is always up to you.

IS PEDIATRIC CHIROPRACTIC SAFE? WHY DO CHILDREN AND INFANTS NEED CHIROPRACTIC CARE?

Yes! Pediatric Chiropractic care is safe and even more gentle than the adjustments that are given to adults. As mentioned above, our youngest patient was 36 hours old for her first adjustment. Obviously she didn't tell us that she had back pain but she'd had a rough birth and her mother remarked that she was having trouble latching when breast feeding.  A few gentle adjustments and there was no holding her back!

Pediatric Chiropractic care may help infants with:

  • Colic

  • Constipation

  • Head/Neck tilt

  • Latching

  • Pediatric Chiropractic care may help toddlers/children/teenagers with:

  • Issues with walking

  • Constipation

  • Recurrent ear infections

  • Growing pains

  • Headaches

  • Activity injuries, including mild concussions

  • Posture

IS PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC SAFE?

Yes! Dr. Maya is certified in Webster Technique which was developed specifically to be used during pregnancy. It is a prenatal chiropractic method that gently and safely balances the pelvis to decrease aches and pains. This same method may also help a breech baby get into a better position for a natural birth.

WHAT OTHER ISSUES CAN A CHIROPRACTOR HELP?

IS YOUR PROFESSION OR JOB CAUSING YOU PAIN?

We spend most of our day at work.  It might be affecting your health. 

Does your job have repetitive motions? Are you in one position for long periods of time, like sitting? Are you lifting throughout your day? These can cause spinal and joint problems that can lead to immediate pain or pain in the future.
