What is chiropractic? Doctors of chiropractic adjust the spine with easy, manual thrusts to move the spinal vertebrae back to their normal positions.  A chiropractor will occasionally adjust the joints of the arms and legs.  Physical therapy, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and massage are often used to prepare the muscles and ligaments before proper joint alignment.
 

What training does a chiropractor have?

All state licensing boards require two to four years of undergraduate education.  To obtain a doctorate of chiropractic degree, a rigorous five-year academic program must be completed.  In addition, four tests given by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners must be passed to become licensed in Arizona.  To maintain a license, almost all states require a completion of continuing education hours each year.

 

Does the treatment
hurt?

Chiropractic care is a pleasant experience.  Most people look forward to their treatments.  If a person presents with severe pain or significant reduction in their range of motion, the initial treatments maybe slightly uncomfortable.
