Frequently Asked Questions about Chiropractors

Not sure how one of our Scarborough chiropractors can help you? Curious to find out how adjustments works? Want to know exactly when you need a chiropractor? Here are some of your most common questions answered

Chiropractor, Neck adjustment

What is that cracking sound in chiropractic adjustments? Is it safe?

An adjustment (also known as joint manipulations) is when your chiropractor applies directed & controlled force to your joints to restore limited range of motion, decrease pain, and reduce nerve irritation.

The “crack” you hear during your adjustment is just the joints opening up. Think about a suction cup releasing from a wall. It is NOT your bones “cracking”. When your joints are stiff, there’s a lot of pressure that is built up in the joint space – and the “pop” is just the sound of that pressure releasing.

Yes – adjustments are safe! Chiropractic Doctors are trained for years in the art & science of proper joint manipulations. They will always perform a thorough assessment to ensure adjustments are safe and beneficial for you – and will always work within your comfort level.

What do Chiropractors do?

Chiropractors are manual therapists who provide diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system, extremities and joints.

Staff are so welcoming and friendly. An easygoing environment that is clean and well maintained. Received FST with Rex and was not disappointed. He always makes sure that I am comfortable and is super attentive during every appointment I've been to. I'm feeling stronger, flexible and now able to do more and get more out of my workouts.

I found Axis by searching top rated clinic of this kind and I am so glad that I tried it. With so many good reviews, I am sure that they are all wonderful professionals, and I started with Dr. Edward and wow, he was amazing! I didn't feel the need to ask a lot of questions as I could feel that I was in good hands. Dr. Edward is an awesome chiropractor, he knows what he does, truly professional. Front desk staff is very friendly and pleasant. And of course, the clinic is very clean. Great experience!
