What does a chiropractor do?

Traditional health care focuses on the germs and blood. Chiropractic Health Care in Royal Oak produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should and allows you to be as healthy as you can be. Dr. Batton looks for areas of the spine that are misaligned and not functioning properly. These areas of dysfunction are called SUBLUXATIONS. Subluxations put pressure on delicate spinal nerves, which prevent the nerves from functioning properly. After several specialized tests to locate subluxations, specific techniques are used to move the misaligned spinal bone back into proper alignment. This is called a Chiropractic Adjustment.

Why should I come in if I am not in pain?

Usually, “symptoms” are the last thing to appear when there is a problem in our bodies. One example of this would be high cholesterol. It is possible to have high cholesterol and not have any symptoms. If you go to your medical doctor and he does a blood test and finds out that you have high cholesterol you are put on cholesterol lowering medicine even if you have no symptoms. Therefore, pain is not a good indicator of how healthy you really are or how well your body is working. What this means is that pain or a symptom is not a good indicator of your state of health. NO PAIN DOES NOT MEAN GOOD HEALTH. IT MEANS NO PAIN!

How often do I have to come in?

The length of care depends on the healing abilities of each person. Results may vary from person to person due to the amount of damage to their spine and nervous system. Your current condition determines the frequency of your office visits. It may take longer to correct subluxations that have been present in the spine for many years. As your subluxations become manageable, your frequency of visits will be decreased to a wellness schedule.

How long do I have to keep coming to a chiropractor?

Chiropractic focuses on getting people healthy and keeping them that way. By removing damaging nerve interference, the body is allowed to function properly. That means that every muscle, organ and tissue in the body will be able to work at 100%. So, the answer to that question is — you only have to visit a chiropractor as long as you want to be healthy!!
