What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care helps by removing any misalignments in the patient’s spine. A misaligned spine causing some symptoms, (Pain, loss motion, etc..) is called a Subluxation. The 3 signs of the Subluxation are lack of proper motion in the spinal joint, muscle tightness/spasm, and inflammation. Doctors of Chiropractic use various methods to fix these problems and get the patient back to moving and feeling better. We always give home rehab exercises to patients. This helps patients keep their pains away for as long as possible.

The spine has two major functions: one is to facilitate motion of the arms and leg, neck and trunk, and other is to PROTECT YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM. That is why Chiropractic is not just for neck and back pain, but also for Headaches and Migraines, Pinched Nerves, Sciatica, Vertigo, and other neurological problems and pains.

At Clover Chiropractic we are all trained in working on extremity problems as well. Pain and dysfunction in hip joints, knee joints, ankles, feet, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and TMJ’s are conditions we treat on a regular basis.

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

Adjustment of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released.

There is usually minimal if any, discomfort involved. The adjustment is still deemed successful if the doctor confirms the joint has motion restored. For patients adverse to the noise from physical adjustments, and Activator Chiropractic Adjusting tool is used, allowing a lighter force adjustment with very good results as well.

Will my insurance cover my chiropractic care?

Yes. Chiropractic care is included in most health insurance plans, including major medical plans, workers’ compensation, Medicare, some Medicaid plans, and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans for federal employees, among others.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects.

The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness, or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.

Can I get chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Yes. Chiropractic treatment is modified for pregnant women. Many women find chiropractic alleviates pain associated with the changing dynamics of their bodies during pregnancy. Certain chiropractic techniques are also used to turn babies in the breach position.

Can I become addicted to chiropractic care?

No, you will never be addicted to Chiropractic Adjustments. Chiropractic does not use drugs to provide the great relief our patients receive. Patients develop body awareness once they start feeling better and can usually tell when something is off in their spine, even before it hurts. These patients are very smartly coming in before a problem gets severe. You could say, ”They are addicted to not being in pain and feeling good. “ I guess.

Why is health important?

A question many people find vague. It has an easy answer: “Being in pain, being sick, and not being able to do what you want is not fun.” Harshly said, it sucks.

When you feel good and are healthy, you can do what you want without pain, sickness, or dysfunction preventing you from living and having fun. Life is hard, but there are many joys it is well. Don’t let pain prevent you from those joys.

Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

Yes, children can benefit from chiropractic care. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness, or discomfort.

Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very gentle. Our doctors can also use the activator to adjust children, which is a very gentle and safe technique.

How much education and training do chiropractors receive?

Chiropractors have about 8-10 years of education behind them. In Wisconsin, chiropractors are required to have a bachelor’s degree from an undergraduate university to practice, which typically takes 4-5 years. Then, they are required to complete a graduate course at an accredited chiropractic college. Chiropractic graduate courses also range anywhere from 3-5 years depending on the college. That brings the total to about 8 years of education.

Can I get chiropractic treatment after back surgery?

Yes! Even after back surgery, there are many things we can do for ongoing pain issues. Muscle spasms and inflammation may continue as well and we can work on those issues no matter what surgery you have had.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Chiropractic Adjustments give most patients some immediate pain relief. Some people respond very quickly, see us for 1 to 4 weeks, then only follow up if their pain returns. Some take longer. If your pain has been going on for years or is from a horrible accident, it may take some time to stabilize your pain issues. Our patients who follow our care recommendations and do the at home rehab always get better and quicker results.
