Q: Can children benefit from chiropractic care?
A: Absolutely. In fact, even newborns can visit the chiropractor for regular adjustments. Chiropractic care for children is gentle, yet beneficial.

Q: How many visits should I make to the chiropractor for my issue?
A: This depends completely on the individual patient and their particular issue. Chiropractors are committed to doing what they can to help their patients feel better as quickly as possible. They’ll also discuss lifestyle activities such as your posture and diet.

Q: What can chiropractors treat?
A: Other than providing pain relief, chiropractic care may also help care for a patient’s asthma, sciatica, ear infections, and even a baby’s colic.
