Most people have heard of chiropractic care, but many of them don't know a lot about it. If you have some questions, you are not alone. Some of the most common questions about chiropractors in Canton are answered below.
A. Chiropractors treat a wide range of conditions ranging from back and neck pain to headaches and migraines. Many conditions can be improved by chiropractic care because of the whole-body approach to health that chiropractors use. Chiropractors are also appropriate doctors to consult regarding nutrition and fitness.
A. Chiropractors hold a graduate degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic, or DC. An undergraduate education is required before spending four to five years training to become a DC. A minimum of 4,200 hours of training is required for the degree. Additionally, practitioners like Dr. Brackney spend considerable time in post-graduate seminars and continuing education.
A. Usually. Most major insurers cover chiropractic care and most insurance is accepted at Brackney Chiropractic Health Centers.
A. The main treatment chiropractors use is spinal adjustment. Additionally, they may adjust other bones of the body. Supportive care for overall health from a chiropractor may include fitness and nutrition counseling, exercises to strengthen muscles, massage to relieve pain and release tension, and more.
A. The number of visits depends on what is being treated and how the doctor plans to treat it. Hands-on treatment requires that you be in the office, but treatments like corrective exercises are something that your chiropractor teaches you and then you do them at home. You can always discuss how many visits the doctor thinks you might need and what results you might expect at the consultation.
