Frequently Asked Questions
Most people experience some discomfort, similar to muscle soreness after a “workout”. This usually passes after a day or two with a gradual decrease in other symptoms.
The shoe heels allow the chiropractor to perform the DNFT leg check correctly as well as clearly see the reactive leg “pull-up”.
If you start experiencing any type of pain that is different than your initial symptoms, such as shooting, stabbing or more intense pain or nausea, contact our office immediately. However, during the process of healing and spinal correction, your defense systems become stronger and can result in symptoms becoming temporarily more noticeable. This is your body “cleaning house”. You may also notice old aches and pains resurfacing. This process is known as retracing and occurs as your body heals through old traumas to become healthier.
The unique leg check allows your body itself to indicate the precise location of a nerve interference as well as the directions of misalignments of the structure in question. This precise information requires only a light force thumb thrust to introduce a complete and long-lasting correction. This detailed DNFT adjustment results in fewer visits with less financial commitments.
In addition, this low force technique, which involves no twisting, popping or hard thrusts, is safe for infants and the elderly, as well as most people with diagnosed spinal or disc problems.
Most people require 4-9 visits per symptom area involved and then maintenance visits of one every 1 to 3 months for prevention.
With the comprehensive DNFT approach, frequent adjustments are seldom necessary once the problem is corrected.
Trauma, including physical, emotional/mental, and chemical, cause spinal misalignments. Examples include auto accidents, falls, repetitive tasks, stressful work or personal relationships and toxic habits such as smoking.
Extreme stress is a trauma that causes subluxations. Everyday stress can exaggerate those subluxations already present.
To prevent, practice a healthy lifestyle including good nutrition, minimizing toxic intake, plenty of rest, exercise, a positive outlook, and proper movement, such as correct lifting, for a fully functional spine and nervous system. To help the affected area, use ice packs or Biofreeze, minimize bending and twisting, drink plenty of water, change positions frequently and follow your care plan.
