Frequently Asked Questions


Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

No.  Athens Atlas Chiropractic Center uses the lightest, most effective adjustment instrument to correct imbalance, improper posture, tilting of the head and subluxation of the vertebrae.

 

Is the treatment affordable?

Of course!  Spinal care is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  Affordable cash plans are available to all patients.  Insurance is filed as a courtesy to our patients and our considered Out of Network services.


What conditions can chiropractic treat?

Chiropractic can help with many conditions such as migraines, headaches, back pain, neck pain, muscle stiffness, muscle spasms, sinus trouble, hyperactivity and ADD, chronic ear infections and bedwetting.

 

How long does it take and how many adjustments are needed?

It is important to remember that it takes time to get well just as it takes time to get sick.  The body is like a bent twig.  Even after the first adjustment, the body is likely to snap back to the position it is used to.  The number of adjustments ultimately depends on your body's response to treatment.

 

Who should get treatments?  Is it okay for children?

It is a good idea for both adults and children to take care of their spines.  The earlier a child is examined, the better his or her chances are of growing up with a balanced body.  Whether you are 2 or 92, the position of the atlas bone can make all the difference in your health.
