Common Answers to Questions We Hear

Like other chiropractors, at Cleveland Heights Chiropractic Clinic we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Below are answers to some of the most common questions we are asked.

Do you have any questions that aren’t answered here? Contact us today and let us answer all of your questions.


Once I go to a chiropractor, will I have to keep going forever?

No, absolutely not. It’s like taking aspirin for a headache: When you get a headache, you take an aspirin and the headache goes away. The next time you get a headache, you take an aspirin. But you don’t have to keep taking aspirin every day when you don’t have a headache. Chiropractic is the same. When you have a backache, you go to the chiropractor. When it hurts again, you go again.

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

Typically not, and most people find them comfortable and enjoyable. In some cases of severe muscle spasms, the pressure from the adjustment might be a little uncomfortable, but the discomfort doesn’t last long. Our goal is always to have you leave feeling better than when you walked in.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

No. Chiropractic can be helpful for many issues. But there are also situations that require a medical approach. We’re as thorough as possible in our examination, so we can help identify any issues that may require urgent medical attention versus what chiropractic can help with.

Does insurance cover chiropractic?

Many plans cover chiropractic, but each plan is different. We will work with yours to verify your coverage.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes, we have outstanding relationships with many MDs.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Generally, yes. As long as there are no red flags in your history or examination, you will get adjusted.

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, over the course of care, we’ll suggest at-home things that can help facilitate the healing process.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes, people who have had discectomies, spinal fusions and rods can receive modified chiropractic care that we will tailor to your specific needs.
