NW Calgary Chiropractors : FAQ

Like other Calgary chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

When should I see a Chiropractor?

Eight out of ten Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their life, and at least one third of people in Alberta will have back pain at any given time. Don’t let pain keep you away from work, school or even your day-to-day activities, contact our NW Calgary AB chiropractic office today! Here are some of the most common reasons why more than 4 million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year:

  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Work and sports-related injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Restricted movement in the back, shoulders, neck or limbs
  • General health and well-being

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Chiropractic is one of the safest, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of back pain, neck pain and headaches. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record, however, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. Even common over-the-counter medicines carry a risk.

Will I Need X-Rays?

Most NW Calgary chiropractors would agree that X-rays can play an important role in your diagnosis and are taken only when a need has been determined by the chiropractor after taking your case history and conducting a physical examination.

Can Chiropractic Care cure other ailments besides back pain?

Chiropractic care cannot “cure” every ailment, nor is it meant to be a substitute for medical care, but there is some evidence to indicate that adjustments may have a beneficial effect on a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Headaches
  • Migraine headaches
  • Chronic sinus conditions
  • Recurrent colds/flus
  • Ear infections
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus
  • Ringing in ears
  • TMJ problems
  • Neck pain/stiffness
  • Shoulder pain, arm/hand pain and numbness
  • High blood pressure
  • Asthma
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hip pain
  • Tailbone pain
  • Sciatica
  • Leg pain and numbness, knee pain, foot pain/numbness

Adjustments may alleviate some of the secondary or referred pain, arising from the response of the musculoskeletal structures to the primary cause.
