  • What is a chiropractic adjustment? Do I have to do it?
    An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustments free up the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function. They are quick movements that sometimes cause a 'popping' or 'cracking' sound called a cavitation. The sound is simply gas being released from the joint, just like opening a can of pop. ​ Chiropractic adjustments have extensive research. Complications are rare and side-effects, such as temporary soreness, are usually minor. Your chiropractor will determine if your problem will respond to chiropractic care or if you require referral to another health care provider. ​ If you are not comfortable with adjustments, there are plenty of other types of treatments that your chiropractor can do.​
  • Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?
    Yes! Chiropractic care is very safe during pregnancy. Many pregnant patients find adjustments very relieving during pregnancy.
  • Is chiropractic safe for kids?
    Yes! Chiropractic care is safe for infants and kids. At 416 Chiro, we refer to another clinic for treatments for infants, but we do treat kids as young as 3 years old.
  • What is laser therapy?
    Laser therapy is light therapy. The target is for the light to reach the cells to create more energy and increase healing properties. It is a modality used to speed up healing and decrease inflammation. It is very useful in acute injuries and arthritic conditions since you do not feel anything during laser.
  • What is shockwave therapy?
    Shockwave is a specialized machine that targets the tendons. Shockwave therapy creates new blood vessel growth in order to heal damaged tissue and break up any adhesions. It is very effective for conditions such as: plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, and tendinitis in the knee or ankle.
