FAQ’s and What To Expect at The Joint Chiropractic...

  • Expect something positively different:  Whether you are familiar with chiropractic care or this is your first time, you can expect your visit to The Joint Chiropractic to be new and different.  For starters you don’t need an appointment.  You can walk in whenever we’re open and be seen by Dr. Morse or Kotlar.  You won’t need a referral or any insurance to receive care immediately either.  During your first visit, Dr. Morse or Dr. Kotlar will explain how joint dysfunctions may occur, how a chiropractic adjustment is used to correct them, and the many benefits chiropractic has to offer.  If you’ve never been adjusted before, this is a great way to have your questions answered. 
  • What is the popping noise when an adjustment is delivered? The popping sounds you hear are your joints releasing tiny pockets of gases.  A chiropractic adjustment does not affect the bones of either side of the joint, but rather the connective tissue that holds the joint together.
  • Is chiropractic care safe? Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drugless and safest from of health care available. Statistically, patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to medical care, where the use of prescription drugs and surgery pose a greater risk.
  • Does chiropractic care hurt? Chiropractic adjustments are highly controlled procedures that rarely cause discomfort because minimal force and gentle pressure is being used. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.
  • Will I be sore following a chiropractic adjustment? Soreness after an initial adjustment is similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program.
  • How long will my visits take? This depends on the length and severity of your condition. Most first visits take 30-45 minutes. Follow up visits are much less, often as little as 5-10 minutes.
  • How often will I need to return? This will be determined after your first visit and will vary from person to person depending on your condition and overall goals. But regular visits are recommended to maintain proper spinal function and health maintenance.
