Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is a chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is essentially the art of using specific and carefully controlled force to positively alter a spinal joint that is not moving and functioning as it should. The procedure is natural, safe, and rarely uncomfortable– in fact, most patients should feel immediate relief! Dr. Chad Wills’ goal is to correct chronic interference in the nervous system and right the patient’s structural alignment. For people who are struggling with daily pain, this care can result in distinct improvements for their overall health and enthusiasm!
Why do I hear a popping sound when I’m having adjustments made?
These sounds are nothing to worry about – they signify the shifting of fluid and/or the release of tiny pockets of air in the joints, which are likely to happen with chiropractic adjustment. Most people are familiar with this sound already because they hear a variation when they crack their knuckles.
Why would a child need to see a chiropractor?
There are several reasons. Sometimes, significant spinal trauma can occur during the birthing process; other times, a child’s love of physical activity can result in falls, blows, and sports-related injuries that turn into chronic back and neck pain. At Wills Chiropractic, our team is dedicated to providing a gentle touch that young patients can trust in, and we’ll always personalize our approach to match their height and weight. In some cases, receiving effective chiropractic treatment at a young age can successfully prevent your child from experiencing health complaints when they reach adulthood.
Is RockTape hard to apply? How long does it last?
Better yet, once you’ve applied your RockTape, it can be worn for up to five days, even while swimming or taking a shower.
If I’m having an adjustment, why do I need therapeutic exercises?
While chiropractic adjustments are designed to improve the patient’s mobility and offer crucial support to the spinal cord, it’s equally crucial for you to then “retrain” your muscles as a part of the rehabilitation process. Here in Naples, FL, our team will work with you through prescribed therapeutic exercises in order to help you improve your coordination, your strength, your comfort levels, and more in ways that will stand the test of time.
Do Sole Supports work in any type of shoe?
Sole Supports can be accommodated by most shoes except for sandals that don’t have removable beds, shoes that don’t have heel counters, and shoes that are similar to ballet slippers. The tight design of athletic shoes is typically able to accommodate Sole Supports. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Wills.
