Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?

Is chiropractic safe for children?When practiced by a licensed professional, chiropractic care has significantly less risk than more invasive options involving surgery or pharmaceuticals. In fact, chiropractic adjustments are widely considered one of the safest modalities, even for children and pregnant women.

Although, as with all therapies, there are contraindications. Patients with certain medical concerns, such as some arthritic conditions, fractures, or osteoporosis, should possibly avoid chiropractic manipulations. But patients who inform their provider of existing health issues may find more gentle chiropractic treatments are still appropriate.

Education and Background

The U.S. Department of Education recognizes the Council on Chiropractic Education as an accredited agency. Chiropractors undergo many years of study in order to receive a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. However, they’re not considered medical doctors. The educational requirements for chiropractic practitioners are extensive, and students will likely graduate with at least seven years of higher education.

In addition, the state requires a licensing process. Programs typically include a minimum of 4,200 hours of instruction and clinical experience. All chiropractors have a background in human anatomy, neurology, orthopedics, and clinical diagnosis, among other areas of study. Mastering hands-on techniques require significant skill and experience.

But is it Safe?

Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, drug-free alternative to more invasive treatments of conditions that involve the connection between nerves, muscles, and the skeletal system.

It’s not uncommon for many patients to experience immediate relief following a chiropractic adjustment, although some people may report a brief mild soreness.

Scheduling Chiropractic Adjustments With Us

No particular preparation is necessary before visiting your chiropractor. However, sometimes it helps if your muscles are first relaxed from a sauna, yoga, or therapeutic massage. Fortunately, many health insurance plans cover chiropractic adjustments.

People most often benefit from a series of weekly sessions, but individual need varies. Empowered Chiropractic – Chiropractor Danville, CA can help you determine how many treatments your policy approves. For more information, please contact our office at (925) 718-5314.

The Power of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic affects every part of our body.  Why?  Because our nervous system controls all aspects of our being, from proper organ function to the sensation of pain.  So it only makes sense that we will begin to feel pain, discomfort, or notice various symptoms when our nervous system isn’t functioning correctly.  Chiropractic does not rely on harsh medication or invasive surgery to treat health-related ailments, instead, it focuses on the nervous system — correcting nerve flow blockages in the spine and other areas of the body, to allow the body’s powerful natural healing power to flourish, flow, and repair itself naturally.

Beautiful, clean, and spacious. The place just feels good to be in. Dr. Mahsa is a top-quality chiropractor (and person) who deeply cares about her clients and their results. She is knowledgeable on many levels and provides a ‘mamma bear’ experience that is both comforting and caring. I feel that I am in good hands while here. I will recommend this place.  P.S. The music she plays is awesome!

Dr. Mahsa is the kind of person you want to refer all your friends to.  She treated my chronic back pain using a combination of techniques that was way more effective than anyone I had seen before.  She has treated me, and now both my sons, for over two years.  The office staff is great too.  Friendly and professional and very welcoming.  I always leave here feeling good.

Dr. Mahsa has been wonderful for my family and I since day one. I was referred to her by a close friend and was glad I went to see her. I’m at the gym at least 5 days a week and my back pain was interfering with my workouts and sleep. She completed an assessment and I was back on my feet in no time. Since I had such a great experience with her I brought my entire family in and they’ve been feeling great with her adjustments as well. It’s difficult to know who to go to when there are so many different chiropractors out there. I’m known to research for the “best” out there and I believe I’ve found it! I recommend you go see her.

Dr Mahsa is amazing  Had a great experience here. She is very knowledgeable and friendly.  This is also a very nice chiropractic office very large and filled with lots of high tech devices.  She did a great job with a fully completed assessment on my body and was able to relieve lower back pain.  Enjoyed all the different machines that were used to help make me feel better and relieve and prevent any future pain.

Jones K., Walnut Creek, CA

Dr. Mahsa immediately put me on an aggressive therapy and now I’m back on my training and have actually improved my time per mile. Dr. Mahsa and her staff are friendly, professional and so DAMN good at what they do. She’s like a family to us.
