FAQ

Got questions about chiropractic care, personal injury, or pain relief? We got answers!

Chiropractic care is a healthcare profession focused on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, primarily through manual adjustments and manipulation of the spine and other joints. Chiropractors aim to improve overall health and wellness by restoring proper alignment and function to the musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractic care can be highly beneficial for individuals who have sustained personal injuries, such as those resulting from auto accidents, slips and falls, or sports-related incidents. Chiropractors like Dr. Kast are trained to assess and treat injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including whiplash, back pain, neck pain, and soft tissue injuries. Through chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation exercises, and other therapeutic modalities, chiropractors can help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote healing following a personal injury.

Long story short, there’s no specific answer to this! The number of chiropractic sessions needed varies depending on the nature and severity of your condition, as well as your individual response to treatment. Some patients experience significant improvement after just a few sessions, while others may require ongoing care to achieve optimal results. Dr. Kast, our chiropractor here at Kast Chiropractic, will conduct a thorough evaluation and discuss a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals and needs, which may include recommendations for the frequency and duration of chiropractic visits.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the hips, buttocks, and legs. It is often caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Chiropractic care can be effective in treating sciatica by addressing the underlying spinal misalignments or disc issues that may be contributing to nerve compression. Chiropractors like our very own Dr. Kast use gentle spinal adjustments, traction therapy, stretching exercises, and other techniques to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain associated with sciatica.

Yes, chiropractic care is considered safe when performed by a licensed and trained chiropractor. Chiropractors like Dr. Kast undergo extensive education and clinical training to ensure the safe and effective delivery of chiropractic treatments. Here at Kast Chiropractic, we also take into account your  health history, condition, and specific needs when developing a personalized treatment plan. While mild soreness or discomfort may occur after chiropractic adjustments, serious complications are rare.
