Frequently Asked Questions

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an alternative and complementary medicine which focuses on restoring and maintaining optimum spinal function.

What is the difference between a Chiropractor and Tit Tar/ bone setter?

Chiropractors are required to undergo a minimum of 4 years education degree from accredited universities and accomplish over a hundred hours of clinical practice before they are qualified. They only provide evidence-based interventions to ensure the highest efficiency and efficacy of treatment for patients.

Can pregnant ladies receive chiropractic care?

Yes, it is totally safe! Chiropractic care is always safe and effective for our pregnant mommies. Not only can routine chiropractic care help to reduce pregnancy-related low back pain, it can also help to align the pelvis and make more space for the baby to move freely in the mother’s womb.

Why do we take X-rays and/or MRIs before treatment?

Because we care. Your health is above all, so we will not guess when it comes to your health. Most chiropractors are experienced enough to identify misalignment visually or through palpation. However, identifying a misalignment does very little to qualify the nature of the misalignment. X-ray films provide qualitative and quantitative data that can be leveraged into a highly customized treatment solution.

People who do not suffer from any soft tissue injuries or neurological deficits often only require an X-ray to view the overall alignment of the spine. However, when soft tissue injuries such as muscle tears or nerve impingements occur, an MRI is crucial in diagnosing your condition accurately.

Is taking an X-ray or MRI harmful to our body?

Did you know that a simple chest X-ray (2 views) only exposes you to the amount of radiation you are likely to get in a day from a natural background such as the Sun, the Earth and some natural chemicals in your body?

The MRI exposes you to ZERO radiation as it uses a magnetic field during the imaging process. So, you can be rest assured that you will not suffer from any hair fall after going through such diagnostic procedures.
