A typical first appointment at Berryville Chiropractic lasts 30 to 45 minutes and includes a consultation, exam, surface EMG (electromyography) and adjustment if needed.
Since this process is new for most people, it’s important to come to your appointment prepared. Ask questions and get involved so you can become an active partner in the recovery of your health.
The main course of care will be specific chiropractic adjustments. This will help return your spinal bones to their proper motion and position.
We use carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore better position and motion spinal joints that are “stuck.” This may require a quick thrust or a slow, constant pressure.
Your treatment could include one area of the spine or the entire spine.
Chiropractic adjustments are safer than back surgery or taking aspirin or muscle relaxers, and millions of patients have been delighted with the results of their chiropractic care.
When compared with traditional approaches, chiropractic care is remarkably safe. In fact, millions of chiropractic adjustments are safely delivered to patients every day.
The healing process takes time, and chiropractic results vary. Though some patients get results quickly, others take several months or longer to see recovery. Children often respond quickly, while adults with long-standing spinal problems heal more slowly.
