Chiropractic is a natural health care profession focused on restoring optimal nerve system function with the aim of improving health and quality of life.
What is a Chiropractic adjustment?
Our Doctors of Chiropractic here at Clinic Fontana use their hands to make specific adjustments to the Spine and body in order to realign, retrain and restore. The effect of a Chiropractic adjustment is massive on the overall equilibrium of your body, each adjustment can cause a ripple effect within your entire system. Which can over time change the memory of your body, similar to breaking a habit with a regime.
Will the adjustment hurt? Is it safe?
Typically, if you weren’t in pain prior to the adjustment, you won’t be after. Sometimes you can experience some mild soreness or minor aches after a visit. Chiropractic is generally very safe when performed correctly by a trained and registered Chiropractor.
How long do I need to come in for?
How long you choose to benefit from Chiropractic care is always up to you. It really depends on your goals. If you are simply after pain relief, then that may take one visit to a few months worth of visits. If you want to correct the underlying issues and get back to performing at your best, then that may take anywhere from a few months to a few years. And if you want to maintain that level of health, energy and vitality for a lifetime and stop yourself recreating the problem in the future then you may choose an ongoing wellness care plan.
What is the popping sounds?
This is caused by small pockets of air, which are in the fluid that surrounds your joints. During a chiropractic adjustment, the pockets of air "pop," which creates that cracking sound you hear.
I have osteoporosis can I get Chiropractic?
Yes of course. Once you let us know about the underlying condition we will tailor a care plan based on your needs. This may also include using a much gentler technique (Activator, Arthrostim..) to avoid any potential damage to your spine.
Is Chiropractic only for your spine?
No! Chiropractors are doctors trained and specialised in any forms of neuromusculoskelal dysfunctions.

Why would a newborn need to get adjusted?
Research shows that trauma caused during the birthing process may cause nerve interference in up to 95% of newborns. Chiropractic removes that interference to allow the body to function at its optimal level.
