Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is considered generally safe for most patients. Because these treatments are non-invasive, patients don’t have to worry about the side effects commonly associated with more intensive treatment options, such as surgery. In addition, chiropractic care doesn’t cause as many side effects as standard medical alternatives, such as prescription narcotics or steroid injections.
Before beginning a treatment plan, the doctors at Structural Based Therapy will always explain any risks or potential side effects to the patient so they can prepare accordingly.

How long does it take to see results?

Many patients will notice results shortly after beginning treatment. Most patients will have noticeable improvement or a complete relief from symptoms within 3-6 sessions. The doctors at Structural Based Therapy work hard to provide patients with results as quickly as possible.

How long do sessions last?

Most chiropractic care sessions last for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, patients will participate in a combination of different therapies designed to address their physical problems.
