Frequently Asked Questions
About our Birmingham Chiropractic Care
When you come into our Birmingham chiropractic center, our team of chiropractors and support staff will work with you to ensure you get the highest level of care. We focus on not only providing you with treatment but also telling you why we make our recommendations and what you can expect. Many of our patients are using chiropractic care for the first time. Many do not know how it works. At Gremmels Chiropractic Center Inc. we are happy to help you with any of your questions.
What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a type of well-studied, proven way to improve the way a person’s central nervous system functions. Every part of your body is influenced in some way by this complex network of nerves that run from your body’s organs, joints, and muscles to the spinal column and to the brain. Whenever one of these nerves is damaged or otherwise inflamed, the pain signals continue and can become very intense. This can stop you in your tracks.
Chiropractic is a type of treatment focused on improving the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, to allow the two systems to work without pain. It repairs the improper function of the spine to give you relief.
What Conditions and Injuries Can Chiropractic Treat?
Chiropractic care can improve the functionality and pain levels throughout your body. If you have pain, it is often a result of nerves sending signals to the brain. Our goal is to address the underlying problem – what is causing those nerves to be inflamed – and treat it. Our chiropractors can help with many concerns including:
- Joint Pain
- Neck And Shoulder Pain
- Back Pain
- Headaches And Migraines Not Otherwise Explained
- Work-Related Injuries
- Sports Injuries
Does a Chiropractic Adjustment Hurt?
The process of making repairs to the body’s musculoskeletal system involves adjustments. This term refers to the force we use on various portions of the body to encourage proper alignment of the spine or joints. Adjustments do not hurt, though you will feel some pressure.
Is Birmingham Chiropractic Care Safe?
Yes, the Birmingham chiropractic care from our team is always safe! It is a proven treatment that has been effectively used for thousands of years. What’s more, it is non-invasive. There is no use of pain medications. We do not perform or often encourage surgery. This makes chiropractic care much safer than many other medical treatments.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This will depend on the condition you have, the severity of it, as well as how well you respond to treatment. Many people begin to feel better right away. However, we recommend long-term care to encourage healing and restoration. This often means coming in to see us at least once a week.
How Long Is a Session with Our Chiropractor?
Again, this depends on the type of treatment you obtain. In most cases, you can come into our office for a treatment and be back to your day-to-day life within an hour. Some sessions may take longer especially if we incorporate massage or other treatments into your appointment.
What can a patient expect During a Consultation with Our Chiropractor?
At Gremmels Chiropractic Center Inc., our primary goal is to understand what life is like for you. We will ask you about any types of pain and limitations you may have and talk about the underlying causes of the pain as well as the types of treatment that we believe can help you. During your consultation, we will explain chiropractic care, offer recommendations for your needs, and provide you with the first steps in getting started with us.
