Answers in Plymouth MN

How does chiropractic care help?

Life and all of its physical demands and injuries cause the spine to not move, work or feel like it is supposed to. When misaligned, can even make your nerves work poorly or not at all. Chiropractic evaluation and care help to restore the spinal components and relationships so one can both feel better and function the way the body is designed. No other profession provides the evaluation and cares for the body like a chiropractor. The body is amazing and also needs amazing care and chiropractic!

Can I see a chiropractor if I've had a back surgery?

The answer is YES! Many back surgeries seize up the joints that were worked on with scar tissue or metal plates which in turn causes new stresses to the rest of the spine. Keeping the rest of the spine lined up, flexible and strong helps prevent the need for additional surgeries! So regular chiropractic after surgery along with special exercises is a GREAT idea!

How long will it take to work?

Chiropractic starts working right away on improving alignment, flexibility, and nerve environment normalcy and function. It is possible to start feeling better very quickly but it may take days or weeks to feel the change depending on how much damage and scar tissue and the amount of nerve pressure is in the spine when you first start.
