Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

“Painful adjustments” is one of the most common myths about chiropractic. Most of our patients experience no pain whatsoever from their adjustment, aside from any discomfort related to their injury or pre-existing symptoms.

Are X-rays required as part of my chiropractic evaluation?

During your first visit, Dr. Loy will carefully evaluate your patient history and examination results to determine whether x-rays are needed. If we do require X-rays, it is simply to ensure the most accurate diagnosis. We believe that “to see is to know.”
