At Siwiec Chiropractic, we are known for giving the best possible treatments we can and spending as much time as needed with each patient to get them back to optimum health as fast as possible. You have probably seen advertisements for chiropractors many times, but before you choose your chiropractor because of a clever advertisement or a fancy machine they claim will fix your back, call them and ask how much time they spend on average with each patient. Ask them how often they utilize Electric Muscle Stimulation, Ultrasound, Myofascial Release, Traction, Massage and other Therapies. Ask them how long the average waiting room time is. Ask if you can have the doctor’s personal phone number in case of an emergency or questions. If you are already seeing a chiropractor and don’t think they are doing all they can to help you, come give us a try. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Why would you not want to visit a chiropractor?
Some people will occasionally say they don’t believe in Chiropractic. This statement is wrong in many ways. First of all, it is a medically proven science. It has been shown in many peer reviewed medical studies that chiropractic if far superior to conventional medicine for the treatment of neuro-musculo-skeletal problems. This means if you have pain arising from muscular origins, joint restrictions or imbalances, or pinched nerves than chiropractic treatments are probably going to be more beneficial than visiting your family doctor. This is why it’s covered under most insurance plans. Many studies show that people who are out of work because of pain return much faster when utilizing chiropractic instead of conventional medicine. This is because of the specific approach and protocols each doctor uses. For example: If you have acute back pain that came about slowly or after a non-traumatic injury there are many different ways to treat it. If you visit your family doctor, MD or DO, they will most likely prescribe pain killers and or muscle relaxers. This may cover up the symptoms and hopefully they will get better on their own. They may not even look at your back or address the cause of the problem. That may be the extent of your treatment. If you visit your chiropractor they will take a hands on approach to correctly diagnose and treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. Back pain is not a normal state of being. There is usually a dysfunction of the muscles, joints or nerves which may have come about from any number of reasons. Your chiropractor will palpate your problem area, test the muscles and joints for abnormalities, and usually figure out what is causing the pain as well as what you need to do to fix it.
At Siwiec Chiropractic we have many tools to deal with a multitude of problems. These include but are not limited to chiropractic adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, myofascial release techniques, traction, hot and cold therapy, and physical therapy protocols such as specific stretches and exercises. For more information on this subject check the Chiropractic Treatments page.
Some people wont visit the Chiropractor because they are scared of getting cracked or adjusted. REMEMBER: The chiropractic manipulation of joints does not mean you have to crack the affected joints. Some chiropractors actually never crack joints. You can usually get the same results or close to the same results by non-force adjustments. This is slowly moving the restricted joint painlessly through its different ranges of motion. The reason this works is because a chiropractor can move your joints in ways you cannot do on your own. This slowly stretches the muscles and ligaments between joints which give them more range of motion.
Some people have had a bad experience with a chiropractor. For example we had one patient who told us that their neck was in a lot of pain so they went to a chiropractor down the street from them. After a quick exam the doctor cracked their neck and told them they will have to be seen 3 times a week for 8 weeks to fix the problem or the treatment will not work. The patient left in more pain than they came in with and never returned to the chiropractor.
This is a typical story of a Chiropractor not doing his job right. It may also be part of a marketing scheme to stretch out your treatment period to get the maximum amount of visits your insurance will cover and maximize profits. Maby he was in a hurry that day or maby that is what he does with all his patients, I don’t know, but this is not how we treat patients. At Siwiec Chiropractic, each patient is unique and we explore different treatment options which are patient specific before any treatment is rendered. If we think a diversified adjustment is the best possible way to treat your problem, we will ask if you are comfortable with us performing it before it is done.
Remember, if you have a bad experience with an MD or DO, a bad prescription drug side effect, a failed surgery or any other similar problem than you probably wouldn’t say I don’t believe in conventional medicine. You should realize that you probably went to a bad doctor and see a different one next time.
If you had a bad experience with a Dentist where you were not happy with the results than you probably would not say I don’t believe in Dentist. You should realize that you probably went to a bad dentist and see a different one next time.
The same thing holds true for Chiropractors. If you had a bad experience with one you probably went to a bad Chiropractor and should find a better one. At Siwiec Chiropractic, we receive many patients who have been to other Chiropractors and found our approach far superior.
One more note: The worst thing to do is avoid seeking help from a chiropractor because someone else told you they had a bad experience, it didn’t work, or they don’t believe in Chiropractic Care. This is one of the main reasons we offer a guarantee. We would like to show you what Chiropractic is and what it can do for you. We believe you will be 100% satisfied with your results, and if we believe that a different approach to treatment will be more beneficial for you, we will refer you to the appropriate specialty.
