This answer varies depending on how you respond to these questions: 1) How old is your mattress? 2) Do you have a box spring 3) What type of pillow do you use, age, how many? 4) Have you had whiplash? If your bed is old, it will have a major effect on posture. The type and number of pillows also will have an effect. Sleeping on your back or fetal position can help. Do NOT sleep on your stomach.

Basically there are two major philosophies. The first are called mixers. These are Chiropractors who evaluate the whole body, diagnose, utilize various therapies such as ultrasound, electric stimulation. etc... They may also utilize nutrition, exercise diet and many other treatments. The other type are called straights. They focus mostly on the spine and related subluxations (misalignment of the spine). Typically they do not work on extremities or use alternative treatments. READ MORE
This question does not have an easy answer. First you should have a complete exam and history. Then depending on findings x-rays or some alternative form of spine evaluation could be performed. Another important factor is the cause of your back pain. Is it from an injury or just started without any history of Injury. Many causes of back pain may include disc herniation, flat feet (need of orthotics in your shoes), short leg...... Then the type if treatment or method of treatment. There are many chiropractic techniques. It is best to have a thorough conversation with your Doctor of Chiropractic to what therapeutic approach he/she would use. READ MORE
As with any procedure there is always a minimal risk regardless. But in response to your inquiry; adjusting children is actually safer than adults. Several reasons why...In most cases they have not developed any arthritic problems, osteoporosis, heart issues etc or other pathological or spinal deterioration. The main suggestion I would offer is that you are seeing a chiropractor who has experience with children. Ask first then treat. You did not state why he was being adjusted. Children under regular chiropractic care are healthier, get sick less often and get well quicker if they are sick. READ MORE
First are they true migraines or just chronic headaches. This condition is often misunderstood by many patients. Treatment varies base on the overall symptoms. Chiropractic is very effective. Sometimes the TMJ (jaw joint) can be directly related to the headache symptoms. Nutrition and diet also have a direct affect. READ MORE
First there is a need of medical history regarding where the back pain is. Questions asked would be did you fall, lift something, work or auto related. Causes can be anything from need of shoe orthotics to a herniated disc, Go to a Chiropractor to get a good history and x-rays to determine your particular problem, and how to treat it READ MORE
Chiropractic, shoe orthotics (balance of the low back starts with the feet, exercise, use of CBD creams or oils for starters READ MORE
Due to everyone being individuals, their response to treatment varies. Children usually respond very quickly compared to adults. With this said, I have seen results as quickly as a few adjustments, but sometimes longer if there are other related issues, such as underlying allergies (i.e dairy or sugar). READ MORE
Normal street clothes. If your chiropractor is performing other therapies such as ultrasound, they may require you to get into a gown, but these days, most don't unless there are concerns about clothing if there is a need to get to an unexposed area. READ MORE
You didn't say what you do. It is very common for your complaint to actually come from your feet. You should see a chiropractor to evaluate your back to make sure there are no spinal pathologies. Unless there is something pathological most back condition respond well to chiropractic care. READ MORE

First, since you have a weight problem, have you checked your blood sugar? Just ruling out diabetic neuropathy. If this can be ruled out, then you should consider shoe orthotics and possible heel lift. Unfortunately, with weight issues (and no medical history or actual weight info) this is the simplest answer. I would need much more medical history to offer more detailed suggestions that are many: based on overall health profile, I would start with a full physical exam. If it is just a foot problem, chiropractic adjustments could also help. READ MORE
Even though the s pop rain has healed, the ankle is probably still fixated or lacking mobility. A chiropractor who is well versed in extremity adjusting can help. You may also need orthotics for shoes. READ MORE

There are many causes for ADHD including nutritional mechanical (structural), environment (type of lighting, air quality...) allergies. A chiropractor who also practices functional nutrition would be very helpful as they can evaluate both on a structural and nutritional basis. READ MORE
This is a tricky question as Chiropractors use the term adjustment whereas Osteopaths use the term manipulation. But to answer your question, It is the creation of mobility within any joint connection utilizing various forms of thrust usually at a minimal intensity releasing the fixation of subluxation of that joint. There are many different techniques within the profession that can be offered and the decision is based on the information based from a physical examination which may also include x-rays, MRI or CT scan. READ MORE
There a several reasons for this type of problem: 1) foot pronation and a need for orthotics 2) chronic shin splints, easily corrected by stripping along the tibialis anterior muscle or posterior. Use oil or massage cream and massage the sides of the calf foot to head direction along the bone. This will probably offer the most immediate relief, but problem one may be the greater issue. Many Chiropractors can offer shoe orthotics READ MORE
Standing x-rays would be the first step to determine if you have a curvature READ MORE

If it has been this long, have you ever had an X-ray or MRI of your neck and upper back? There can be several causes to consider. Were you in any bad falls or car accidents when you were younger? Films could determine if you had any pathological problems going on. There are congenital conditions that can also exist. The films would determine these also. READ MORE
Rib subluxation can be a very large problem among any age group. A lot depends on if she has osteoporosis. If so the shrinking of spine will cause changes on her rib cage. This can be determined by an x-ray. If severe she should have a bone density test done to determine the severity of her condition. It she does not have this Chiropractic would be the avenue to go READ MORE

Exercise will not help gout. It must be treated by diet change, vitamins related to the condition, and, if severe, the use of drugs. READ MORE
Yes if it is purely joint or muscle related. If you have a more significant problem such as muscle rupture or other related pathological symptoms the Chiropractor should be able to diagnosis it and refer you to the proper specialist. READ MORE
Very different. Chiropractic deals with the nerves of the body in association to the spine. It also deals specifically to the bio-mechanics of the whole body in regard to motion. If a joint doesn't move or is fixated, all the exercise you can have will not help that joint. So for a quick explanation Chiropractic restores joint motion and its effect on the surrounding nerve tissue. PT deals with stretching and some rehab exercise in a generic definition. They can also do various adjunctive therapies such as ultrasound and electric stimulation which Chiropractors also do. This would be the one similarity they have. READ MORE
Lipomas can be genetic or familial (runs in the family). If concerned if they are lipomas or something else, it is best to be seen by either a dermatologist or a general surgeon. A chiropractor may be able to diagnose it, but sometimes they can mimic other issues. The fact that it can cause pain when bumped, I would recommend seeking a medical evaluation. READ MORE
You did not mention what areas of the body had the x-ray. The neck will need or use the lowest amount of radiation as compared to the low back which will typically need the most. If this was all the x-rays you have had regardless of region you should be fine. You should discuss this concern with your Chiropractor. Since he or she knows what type of equipment they use, should have a better of idea of the amount of exposure you may have received. READ MORE
My father is suffering from severe back pain. Can it be treated with manual adjustment of the spine?
Before offering an opinion several bits if information is needed. Has he had any traumatic injuries? Does he have any history of cancer; especially prostate. Does have any pain, numbness, weakness or tingling down his legs? Has he had an MRI or x-rays? Findings? Now to answer your question once all this information is known the following non-surgical treatment can help. Chiropractic, acupuncture, traction, deep tissue massage, electrical stim READ MORE

There are various reasons to have a tight neck. Do you have a history of falls or auto accident or any other neck injury? (This could be back from being much younger). Quick answer yes. READ MORE
The best answer to your question would be the following analogy; Would you stop having tune ups on your car, oil change, wheel balance etc? The answer would be no. Too totally discontinue Chiropractic care would be the same. Your body needs the occasional adjustment to maintain a healthy body. READ MORE
The cracking sound has minimal relationship to the overall adjustment.. There are various physiological reason why there is a cracking sound; however there is no direct correlation between loud or soft sounds and the way you feel. As we say some patients just produce a little tweak and feel great or others will sound like a tree falling and just feel okay. READ MORE
No, in many cases, symptoms may not show for several months. Seeing a chiropractor can determine the relationship of your symptoms to the accident. READ MORE
Since you do not mention age or your sex, I will offer a generic answer. Possibilities are hip imbalances, short leg, curvature of the spine that have worsened. Then, there are also possibilities of organ referred pain, i.e kidney stones. READ MORE
A simple answer is yes. Muscles are attached to bones. Chiropractors usually work on all joints, not just the spine. READ MORE
Many chiropractors do take X-rays on initial visits. This also depends on age and sex. Females over 45 or post menopausal are more prone to osteopenia and osteoporosis, so it is not just for diagnostic purposes, but also patient safety. Other factors could be previous history of accidents or injuries and possible degenerative changes. READ MORE
There are several questions to ask; 1) Where exactly is the pain? 2) Is it low back , mid back or hip region. 3) Does the pain occur in bed or anywhere you lie down? 4) What type of pain; dull, sharp, achy, radiating...? 5) What part of the back was fused? Possible answer with out knowing the facts are; 1) If it is only when lying in your bed, the mattress would likely be a major possibility. 2) If it is in the hip or low back region it could due to fixation of the hips and seeing a chiropractor could take care of that. 3) General treatment could include use of a CBD cream, Sombra cream, TENS unit. 4) Do some stretching exercising in a pool. My suggestion would be to see a Chiropractor in your area to get an initial evaluation to see if it is treatable or need a referral back to your surgeon. Bottom line you should be seen for an evaluation because there are many possible answers to your question. READ MORE
