During your initial visit at Durrum Chiropractic, you will have a consultation and examination with the doctor, followed by any necessary tests, X-rays, and scans. During your 2nd visit, the doctor will review all findings from your previous evaluation (X-rays & scans), let you know whether or not we can help you, and go over the recommended care plan and financial agreement. Once the plan is in place, you will receive your first adjustment.
Adjustments do not hurt. The primary technique used by our doctors is Torque Release Technique. This is a gentle tonal technique. “TRT” is the most up-to-date chiropractic technique available.
Yes, we do X-rays to determine whether or not you’re subluxated, how long your issues have been going on, the severity of your condition, and how long it will take to correct and recover from your condition.
Our doctors use both The Integrator and Arthrostim.
The Integrator is the only chiropractic adjusting instrument that was developed out of a randomized clinical trial, blinded and with a placebo control. It has true force adjustment as well as customizable options to allow the chiropractor the greatest outcome in correcting almost any subluxation that can present itself. The Integrator™ is a legally marketed medical device for the adjustment of Vertebral Subluxation; only available to licensed Doctors of Chiropractic.
The ArthroStim Instrument is a handheld machine that aids your chiropractor in performing adjustments. This powerful tool delivers 12-14 incremental thrusts per second, making it much stronger and faster than a typical single thrust administered by a chiropractor. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, the ArthroStim instrument modulates the force your physician applies in treatment, but in a much more comfortable and effective manner.
Absolutely! Newborn infants should be checked within hours after birth. The birth process, even under natural and controlled conditions, is potentially traumatic. During the pushing stage of labor, the spine, particularly the neck, may be injured as the baby is compressed and pushed down the birth canal. The most frequent subluxation experienced by newborns results from the pulling, twisting, and compression of the infant’s spine during birth. An infant experiences 60-80 pounds of torque on their spine as they are pulled through the birth canal. Although birth subluxations may cause immediate symptoms, such as respiratory depression, there may be far-reaching effects that are manifested for years. The child’s ability to fight against disease, for example, may be lowered. Colds, ear infections, colic, and other illnesses may result.
Yes! As a woman’s body changes, the musculoskeletal systems are affected, causing subluxation resulting in muscle cramps and aches, nerve pain, headaches, nausea, or insomnia. Chiropractic care can help you and your baby achieve a healthier, more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
One of the most helpful therapies used post-surgery is chiropractic care, which involves performing chiropractic adjustments to allow your body to heal and relieve pain and discomfort in the body. Chiropractic care is absolutely safe for most patients who undergo back surgery after they have healed from the procedure.
One of the biggest, most exaggerated myths about going to the chiropractor is that once you start going, you need to go forever. Some people believe that if they stop getting adjusted, their spine will suddenly revert back to a state of disrepair, and they’ll fall down a rabbit hole of pain, discomfort, and crippling mobility. This just isn’t the case. Chiropractic is about getting your spine back into alignment, then helping you develop the good habits to keep it there. The myth of “chiropractic forever” comes from the prolonged adjustment schedules many people need. For example, a 24-week adjustment schedule can turn into a longer timeline depending on the severity of your condition. That said, many people choose to continue seeing a chiropractor after their maximum health has been achieved because they see it as a holistic form of self-care.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) care for patients of all ages with a variety of health conditions. They are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, and headaches using their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. DCs also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, ligaments, and joints. These painful conditions may involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction far from the region of injury. In addition, chiropractors offer advice to patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest nondrug, noninvasive forms of health care available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following a chiropractic adjustment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness, or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.
Doctors of chiropractic are well-trained professionals who provide patients with safe, effective care for a variety of common conditions. Their extensive education prepares them to identify patients who have special risk factors and to ensure those patients receive the most appropriate care, even if that requires referral to a medical specialist.
