Chiropractic Care Benefits + Other Frequently Asked Questions

You can watch the full interview here.

 

Whenever I share on social media that I have been to the chiropractor, I always get lots of questions about why I go and what chiropractic care looks like.  So I thought rather than just me explaining it because I’m not the expert I’d have my chiropractor Dr. Jennifer Knobbe answer some of your most frequently asked questions.  The chiropractic care benefits have greatly blessed our family’s health and maybe it could help you too!

**Dr. Jennifer Knobbe’s words are italicized for reference**

 

Why did you start going to a chiropractor?

During my pregnancy with our first daughter, I had acid reflux, and they put me on medicine during that time.  However, after pregnancy, I don’t want to be on that medicine for the rest of my life so I started to see an acupuncturist and I was able to wean off the medication and have had no issues since.

Then, I actually started seeing Dr. Jennifer when I was pregnant with our 2nddaughter because she was breech.  Dr. Jennifer was recommended because of her certification in the Webster technique.  She successfully turned Lucy and I was able to have a successful natural birth and it was my easiest to date.

 

Does your whole family go to the chiropractor?

Right after our youngest daughter was born, my husband started to not be able to bend over to tie his shoes without severe back pain.  So, at that point, we decided it would be good for all of us to go regularly.

We have seen huge benefits in our kids and we rarely have to go to the doctor anymore for sick visits. Literally, I think we have had one sick visit for each kid in the last two years.

 

 

What is chiropractic care?

Your whole body is controlled by your nervous system coming through your brain going all the way down, and it functions not only your muscles, joints and your bones but also every nerve in the cells that are in your body.

A chiropractor treats the body inside out. Whereas in western medicine or “traditional medicine”, we treat outside in with surgeries, medication or things like that. Chiropractic care looks at the root cause internally and allows the body to takes the origin of the problem and aligns the spine so that everything around can function optimally.

 

Does chiropractic care replace traditional medicine?

It doesn’t replace anything I think there is a place for everything.  Pretend, your house is on fire. It’s an emergency situation, you’re going to call 911. If you have an emergency, you’re bleeding out or there’s cancer, whatever it may be. You do need that medicine and the beautiful technology that we have in America.

However, if you’re just going to repaint the walls or if you need a light bulb change, you’re not going to call 911. It’s the same with our bodies.  If you have a stomach ache, fever, backache or something like that.  You don’t necessarily need to have surgery or run to get medicine, you can actually look inward and go to a chiropractor.

What kind of education does a chiropractor have?

In total, I have eight years of college.  Four years of undergraduate work and then four years of additional schooling at a chiropractic college. Within those four years, we have lots of hands-on training and internships.  Additionally, chiropractors are board certified and can receive certificates in additional areas.

 

What are the benefits of chiropratic care?

Most people and especially on men come in for low back pain or neck pain.  So that’s where most people come into the door first, and then they start noticing all the other benefits to chiropractic care like better sleep, reduced anxiety, better digestions, and immune support.

We see babies for latching support and colic all the time. As well as reflux and ear infections.  We kids and adults for things like constipation, heartburn, dizziness, migraines, attention issues, anxiety, and stress.  We also treat fertility and hormonal issues in

Chiropractic care just really restores the body to that optimal health.  We’re just trying to get the body to do what it knows how to do and get rid of the interference.

Studies show that a single chiropractic adjustment can boost the immune system 200%.

Do you see better results with regular care like repeated over time?

Everyone is a little different. Maintenance care in my office can be once a week, to once a month or even once a quarter. Okay.  It really depends.  Regular care compounds, just like going to the gym you don’t see results of a six pack abs the first time.  You actually get healthier and healthier every single time you go to the chiropractor.

 

Does chiropractic care hurt?

It’s very gentle. You might hear popping sounds, but it is actually quite a gentle manipulation.

 

Is it safe to do during pregnancy?

Yes, absolutely.  It is safe and is encouraged. Studies show that it helps with easier and faster deliveries.   Chiropractors can also help post-pregnancy as well.

 

How do you find a good chiropractor?

Ask your friends.  Word of mouth recommendations is the best way to find a chiropractor that fits your needs.  All chiropractors are slightly different, just like doctors, so find one that you mesh with and can help meet your health goals.

If you are local…

If you are local, I would highly recommend Dr. Jennifer Knobbe at Natural Health Chiropractic Care.
