Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to Cornerstone Chiropractic: Your Source for Holistic Wellness


Will I Always Need Chiropractic Care?

No, you’re not obligated to continue chiropractic care indefinitely. However, it’s highly advisable to consider regular wellness adjustments. Think of it like maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-transformation. Just as neglecting exercise and nutrition can reverse progress, discontinuing chiropractic care may lead to a regression in spinal health. Periodic wellness adjustments help maintain your spine’s alignment, prevent relapse, and ensure long-term well-being, akin to regular dental care preventing cavities.

Does Chiropractic Adjustment Cause Pain?

Typically, no. While initial adjustments may cause slight discomfort, especially if you’re experiencing pain, any soreness afterward is normal. Your body’s adjustment to a new spinal alignment might resemble post-workout soreness. Rest assured, discomfort is transient, and hydration and rest aid the process.

Can Chiropractic Cure Everything?

Chiropractic doesn’t “cure” ailments; it focuses on correcting spinal misalignments to alleviate nerve pressure, facilitating the body’s innate healing mechanisms. While not a panacea, chiropractic adjustments often alleviate unexpected symptoms by restoring nervous system function.

Why Adjust Newborns or Young Children?

Birth can cause spinal misalignments, affecting a child’s nervous system. Adjustments in infants can correct these misalignments early, promoting healthy development.

Can Chiropractic Help with Colic?

Yes, gentle adjustments can address pelvic misalignments, which may alleviate colic symptoms in infants, restoring comfort and reducing fussiness.
