FAQs

Do many people see chiropractic?
Yes, an estimated 27 million people in the United States alone visit one each year, making it the third largest specialty in the primary health care field (medicine is first and dentistry is second).
Where can I find a doctor of chiropractic?
There are established practices throughout the world, including all fifty states and the District of Colombia in the United States.
Do doctors of chiropractic prescribe medicine or perform surgery?
No. However, some chiropractic physicians who have the proper certifications can perform a procedure called manipulation under anesthesia (MUA) which is considered a non-invasive surgical technique.
Do doctors of chiropractic only treat lower back pain?
No, the job of a doctor of chiropractic is to locate and analyze improper placement of the verterbrae and give spinal adjustments that “unlock” misplaced vertebrae (subluxation) and encourage them to shift back into normal alignment.
Can I tell if I have a subluxation?
No, it’s quite the opposite. You may have one for a long time before symptoms appear.
Is every patient adjusted the same way?
No. Each patient receives customized care. The doctor evaluates each patient’s unique spinal problem and then develops an individual course of care. Then, each adjustment builds upon the previous one.
Can chiropractic care work for every health problem?
No, but it is successful with a wide variety of problems not traditionally considered as back problems. That’s because, with a normal nerve supply, the body’s natural healing ability can improve many health problems. And, chiropractic care can improve nerve system function.
Is a good workout equal to getting adjusted?
No. While exercise is very good for you, it puts additional wear on improperly functioning spinal joints if you do not have normal spinal function.
How does an adjustment feel?
Most patients say that it feels great; however, some people are sore after the first few sessions.
Should I be adjusted if I'm sick?
Yes – it can help you regain control and balance, which, in turn, can help you fight off your illness.

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then.

I was feeling very sluggish, bloated and not full of life. I went online to Advanced Physical Medicine to make an appointment for a colon hydrotherapy. Well lets just say after doing 3 sessions, I FEEL AWESOME! Elida is the best colonic therapist that you can ever have. Not only is the procedure comfortable, but afterwards you will have so much energy. Elida also recommended the Total Tea Gentle Detox Tea, and OMG! Also the best. I have type 2 Diabetes, and I have been feeling so much better with this tea. It's a great taste, no sugar needed! This was the best decision that I have done in a long time. The staff here is also pretty awesome! Thank you so much Advanced Physical Medicine and Elida!

The Ideal Protein Diet has worked for me. Over a four month period starting in May, 2014, I lost 40 plus pounds on this diet. I have been able to maintain this weight loss since then. On the Ideal Protein diet I can honestly say that I have never been hungry, and it has helped me change over to healthy eating habits. I am a type-two diabetic and was on one-half dozen different medications for diabetes. With the weight loss my blood sugars are now normal and I am off all diabetic meds! The Ideal Protein diet has changed my life!
