What exactly is chiropractic? 

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts based upon the understanding that good health depends upon a normally functioning nervous system. 

"Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word chiropraktikos, meaning "effective treatment by hand." Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. It looks to address these diseases not by the use of drugs and chemicals, but by locating and adjusting the musculo-skeletal area of the body, to see which areas are functioning improperly. 

What kind of chiropractic care do you provide? 

We use the Activator and Torque Release system, which is gentle, non-force chiropractic care.

Does it hurt? 

Under normal circumstances, adjustments don't hurt at all. The patient ocassonally may experience a minor amount of discomfort during the adjustment, but this lasts only seconds. 

Is it safe?

Chiropractic adjustments are extremely safe. The risk factor is estimated to be in excess of one million to one. 

What kind of education and training do doctors of chiropractic receive?

Chiropractors receive an education that emphasizes neuromuscular diagnosis and treatment. Preparation for the practice of chiropractic is concentrated on three areas of learning; basic training in the biological and health sciences (anatomy, physiology, histology, biochemistry, clinical and radiological diagnosis); specialized training in the chiropractic discipline (theoretical studies, practice, diagnosis and applications); and extensive clinical training.
What conditions benefit from chiropractic care?
Although chiropractic is used most frequently to relieve low back pain, studies have found it to be effective for a variety of conditions, such as migraine headaches, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and infantile colic. 

Have any studies been published showing what conditions chiropractic care benefits?
Several studies have documented the effectiveness of chiropractic in relieving back pain. More recent studies have shown chiropractic to be effective in treating infantile colic and migraine headaches. 

What can I expect on my first visit?
Dr. Geersen will perform a full evaluation, which will include questions about your symptoms and your hopes for chiropractic care. In addition, you will be given a neurological scan. See here for more information about what to expect on your first and subsequent visits. 

What other services do you offer besides chiropractic?
We offer a variety of alternative health treatments, including acupuncture and nutritional counseling.
