What does a chiropractor do? A chiropractor finds misalignments of the bones of the spine and body that are stressing the nerves and causing less health and function of the body. Dr. Kayla will evaluate f how well the joints are moving as well as if there are tight muscles or tender areas around those joints to indicate if these misalignments called subluxations are present. Then she adjusts, or puts the bones back in place, to restore motion to those joints as well as nerve flow and communication to those areas of the body that were under stress.
The biggest positive side effect of an adjustment is helping the body function better so it can operate at its peak performance! Other positive side effects include less soreness and tightness, herniated disc symptoms, and headaches. St Paul MN patients also experience relief from tight shoulders, rib pain, leg pain, arm pain, and more. They are also alive with much more energy in general!
Combining Dr. Kayla's anti-inflammatory nutrition recommendations with chiropractic care supports the immune system function and decreases stress on the body so many chiropractic patients and families typically report they are getting sick much less compared to non-chiropractic family members and/or coworkers!
This is really patient-dependent. Some people need more and some people need less, especially depending on their health goals. Starting with a chiropractic examination and history and getting an understanding of your current health state and condition leads Dr. Kayla to make the best recommendations for your current situation. But usually, once a St Paul MN chiropractic practice member is feeling and functioning better many choose to continue with regular chiropractic care even when they are feeling well at usually 1-4 adjustments per month

Chiropractic adjustments typically feel great! Sometimes there might be a little tenderness or discomfort as the body adapts to the changes in alignment; there may also be existing inflammation in those areas that might initially get stirred up as well. If you are concerned with possible discomfort Dr. Kayla has many styles of adjustments ranging from hands on manual adjustments to gentle drop or activator adjustments for acute neck or low back pain conditions; pelvic blocking adjustments are really great and effective for painful low back situations as well!
Will a chiropractic adjustment completely remove back pain? This really depends on many factors: how long has the back pain been going on, what level of damage may be present on the spine (determined by xrays), what repetitive job and ergonomic stressors a person experiences, what level of inflammation is present in the body (inflammation can cause pain as well) and what type of nutrition a person consumes (anti-inflammatory or inflammatory?). Most importantly it also depends on how well a person follows Dr. Kayla's treatment recommendations that include frequency of chiropractic care, stretches and exercises to do at home, addressing ergonomic and lifestyle changes and possible nutritional recommendations and/or supplements,
Chiropractic treatments are very appropriate for children! They experience falls and accidents to their young spines that when not checked and adjusted early on in life can lead to structural problems later in life. Adjustments are tailored to the child to be gentle hands on adjustments to gentle activator or drop adjustments if needed.
