New Patient FAQs

Whether a patient is changing chiropractors or has never seen one before, having questions and concerns is completely understandable.

If you have additional questions, don’t be afraid to ask by calling the office. When it comes to your health, there is no such thing as a stupid question.

Why do I have to keep coming back? 

This is the most common chiropractic question (and point of skepticism). In truth, more than one treatment is typically necessary. Five years of poor posture cannot be fixed in five minutes. Helton Chiropractic's process is designed to correct the problem and maintain new-found health throughout your life. With braces, you need regular tightening. You need an oil change every 10,000 miles. You probably need a vacation every once in a while, too!

What is the "cracking" sound I hear? 

As an adjustment is performed, nitrogen gas is released from the joints; the sound doesn’t come from bone. The sound is similar to “cracking” your knuckles. But remember: nothing is being snapped or cracked – only released.

What does an adjustment actually do? 

A chiropractic adjustment is a specific and gentle force into a restricted joint with the intent of restoring normal motion. The adjustment helps to restore mobility to the restricted joint, which helps decrease pain, reduce nerve pressure, improve alignment, restore disc function, etc.

How do I know that my pain isn't originating from a muscle? 

Nine times out of ten, a pulled muscle corrects itself within three days and will respond well to heat and stretching. The reason why the muscle hurts to begin with is what chiropractic treats. Using a computer mouse with your right hand for 40+ hours a week can cause spinal discrepancies and can also cause muscle symptoms in your neck, shoulder, arm and hand.

Is my child too young for chiropractic care?  Are my parents too old? 

There are no age restrictions for chiropractic care. Helton Chiropractic is trusted with treating newborn babies and older people well into their 90’s. Providing care to newborns is a point of controversy because of the misconception of force required to make an adjustment. Although a “pop” can be heard, the force needed to make an adjustment is very gentle.
