FAQ

“The Quality Of Your Questions Will Determine The Quality Of Your Life”. Our Commitment to Quality Is to always give you a Quality Answer.

Why ‘Color’?

To us ‘Color’ is ‘Life’! With our understanding of the health, healing and the human body, we know that people can have more vitality and vibrance by just adding chiropractic to their health approach.

Why ‘Chiropractic’?

The self-evident truth in allowing the body to properly communicate with itself and thus properly self regulate and self heal needed to be reminded to people: “The body needs no help, just no interference”.

Over the years we watched more and more people take medical interventions into their lives but get less and less results. It became obvious to us that the mainstream approach to ‘health’ did not lead to the ‘well-being’ that we envisioned. The crucial role of the nervous system and it’s role in communication from the brain to all systems of the body was being largely overlooked or downplayed by many reputable health professions.

Chiropractic in it’s purest form look for detect and correct any interference within the nervous system and allow the ‘power that made the body to heal the body.’

What is ‘Advanced Chiropractic care’?

In our opinion, advanced chiropractic care is a missing piece to people’s health.  Why do we say that?

We know that health and healing is a process that occurs naturally.  Chiropractic is a healing profession that works with the healing process by looking for interferences with the way the brain is communicating with the body through the nervous system.

Traditional Chiropractic therapy focuses on adjusting/manipulating the spine to take pressure off of pinched nerves that are not communicating well (Think of it like an electrical circuit that shorts out).  However, our Advanced Chiropractic care focuses on why those nerves continue to being pinched or irritated in the first place.  Our holistic treatments (ex. Applied Kinesiology, Neuro Emotional Technique, etc.) can help us uncover physical, nutrition and even emotional imbalanced that are causing the nerves to pinch and leading to your discomfort (Ex. Neck pain, sciatica, digestive issues, allergies, etc).

By optimizing this communication through a holistic approach to health, and proper lifestyle changes, we help ensure that your chiropractic care is give you long lasting results.

What should I expect from my initial Chiropractic examination?

The Doctors are specifically trained to look at the body as a whole. Therefore, they will incorporate holistic treatments to your specific problem.  A Chiropractic examination will focus on helping you find either physical, nutritional or emotional imbalances to your problem.  If the doctors feel that holistic treatments can be done on the first visit, they will perform them to see how the body responds.  At the initial exam or proceeding visits the doctors will refine your care based on how your body is adapting to the holistic treatments.

Helping you get the best results is a process, but after the examination we will have a better idea of:

  • Whether we can help you?
  • What’s wrong with you?
  • How long will It take to get better?
  • How much will It cost?

What can I expect after my chiropractic adjustments?

What happens after your first adjustment is going to be largely determined by your body. Although results can vary, most of the patients at Color Chiropractic start noticing changes instantly

Feeling more relaxed

Feeling less pain in their area of complaint

More mobility

In follow up visits, patients also report that the Doctor’s advanced chiropractic care yields additional benefits that the patients weren’t expecting

Performing activities they haven’t been able to perform in years

Feeling less pain in areas other than what they came in for

Having a boost in energy

Better digestion

Feeling more at ease in stressful situations

Instead of having the body become dependent on medication, the doctors at Color Chiropractic focus on giving holistic treatments that help the body to do a lot of healing on its own. To track the healing process, they recommend periodic re-evaluations after a series of treatments to assess how the body is adapting. The Doctors find that individuals get the most long term resolution when they help patients develop a relationship with their health.

What’s that popping noise coming from when we get adjusted?  Is there an alternative techniques to taking pressure off of nerves? 

Often a normal ‘popping’ noise may coincide with certain forms of Chiropractic therapy. This is caused by the quick formation and release of gas bubbles in your joints due to a sudden shift in pressure. It is similar to how you occasionally  crack your knuckles.  The popping noise is a result of a minute change in the joints.

At the same time, a popping noise is not necessary to indicate that a chiropractic adjustment was made.  We find that factors like leg length checks, muscle testing and freedom of movement are other indicators that show them that an adjustment has been made.  The Doctors may also use advanced Chiropractic techniques that incorporate adjustments using the chiropractic table, instrument adjusting, muscle release tools and even cold laser.  These are less invasive techniques that are extremely effective at taking pressure off the nerves and give your body the relief you’re looking for. Please consult with the Doctors for additional details.
