Is every patient adjusted in the same way?

Absolutely not. Our chiropractic specialists evaluate each and every patient individually. Chiropractic concerns are very unique. For this reason, Lakes Rehab focuses on every patient’s spinal problem and develop a customized course for their chiropractic care. The recommendations we make are based on our years of education, training, and experience.

Can I see a chiropractor after receiving back surgery?

Yes. Unfortunately, many patients who previously undergo spinal surgery often discover that their symptoms remain years after the procedure. This is what our team at Lakes Rehab refer to as failed back surgery syndrome. Chiropractic care may prevent the need for a secondary back surgery. In many cases, if chiropractic specialists use nonsurgical methods initially, patients may avoid surgery altogether.

Can I give myself chiropractic adjustments?

No, you cannot. A chiropractic adjustment is a specific force applied in a specific direction, to a very specific area of your body. It is essentially impossible to give yourself a chiropractic adjustment safely or correctly.

Many patients think that when they turn or twist in a certain way to create the “pop” that is commonly associated with chiropractic adjustments, that this is the same method. Nevertheless, these methods of joint manipulation are counterproductive. There is a reason that chiropractic specialists go to school and ensure rigorous training to get where they are. Chiropractic adjustments are not for amateurs.
