FAQs


Let's try to be clearer.

What is Subluxation?

  • Altered joint biomechanics or in other words, a joint that is stuck in malposition resulting in:
    • Loss of Strength
    • Loss of Range of Motion (ROM)
    • Decreased Activation of the Brain & Central Nervous System
    • Increased Pain Sensitivity
    • Increased Inflammation
    • Increased Joint Degeneration
    • Altered Posture

Is Chiropractic Healthcare a Safe Treatment Option?

  • Records form insurance and court cases have constantly shown that chiropractic is the safest portal of entry health care available to the public today. Although no healthcare procedures are 100% safe, chiropractic stands on its record of safety and effectiveness unmatched in healthcare.

Is Chiropractic Effective and Preventative Healthcare?

  • The anatomical focus of the DC on the human spine has created the perception of the DC as just a back doctor. Although this perception is not entirely incorrect, it is very much incomplete. Doctors of chiropractic are a highly appropriate resource in matters of work-place safety, stress management, injury prevention, postural correction and nutritional counseling.

Are Chiropractors real Doctors, like Medical Doctor's and Osteopathic Doctor's?

  • Doctors of Chiropractic receive extensive demanding professional education on par with MDS and DOS. To receive the doctor of chiropractic degree, candidates must complete extensive undergraduate prerequisites and several years of graduate-level instruction and internship at an accredited chiropractic institution. Comprehensive knowledge of all systems of the body and diagnostic procedures enable the DC to thoroughly evaluate a patient, address disorders relating to the spine and determine the need for referral to another health care provider.

Is Chiropractic in high demand?

  • Chiropractic is the fastest-growing and second-largest primary healthcare profession.

Is the Chiropractic Adjustment Safe and Effective?

  • Chiropractic is non-invasive, drugless form of health care. Of the over one million adjustments given every day in the world, complications are exceedingly rare. Perhaps the best summary statement on the subject of safety was published in 1979 by the Government of New Zealand which established a special commission to study chiropractic.

    "The conspicuous lack of evidence that chiropractors cause harm or allow harm to occur through neglect of medical referral can be taken to mean only one thing: that chiropractors have on the whole an impressive safety record."

Do you Take Insurance?

  •  Powerpractic, as a policy, no longer participates in health insurance because of the changing landscape. Health insurance companies cap our ability to give you top level care based on unrealistic business policies. As well, third party managers almost make it impossible to give you the amount of visits you need based on the current medical evaluation criteria. We are happy to discuss any concerns and answer any further questions.
