Creating Healthy Lives
At Pecan Country Chiropractic we want to get to know our patients and get down to the root of the physical/medical issue at hand. As a licensed practitioner, it is our duty to follow a plan to get you on the track to a healthier life. Upon your first visit, you will be asked to perform physical tests and movements to help identify the source of your discomfort. In certain situations, an X-ray may be taken to confirm the history and examination findings and to investigate for the presence of any underlying bone conditions or pathological developments. After a diagnosis has been made, our team will work together with you to create custom treatment plan.
Frequently Asked Questions
An adjustment is the main method of treatment used by your chiropractor. It is a specialized, controlled and safe pressure applied to your spine to restore the proper motion and position of your vertebrae. It is a precise procedure that your highly skilled chiropractor has learned and perfected over years of training at a Chiropractic College and in clinical practice.
Every health procedure, from taking aspirin to giving blood, involves a level of risk. Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest of all health care interventions because they are non-surgical, drug-free and present an extremely low risk. And they work!
Yes. Chiropractic care is safe and effective. Scientific evidence proving that chiropractic care works is overwhelming. Over the past 20 years, many controlled and independent research studies have shown again and again that chiropractic care is safe and effective for treating low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other conditions relating to the spine.
Based on these scientific studies, the consensus is that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice for most spinal problems. The extent to which a person can benefit from care varies depending on their problem and how long it has existed.
That depends on your condition. The length of time you have had the problem, your age and the degree of your disability all affect the length of your treatment.
Your Doctor of Chiropractic should be able to give you an estimate of the extent of relief you should receive from the recommended treatment and how long you can expect it to last.
One of the main reasons people choose chiropractic is that they often get quick results. Individual cases vary and chronic conditions obviously need more treatment. However, Workers’ Compensation Board studies show that people with low back pain return to work much faster with chiropractic care.

We offer a hands-on approach to providing long term results for all of our patients. Below is a look into a few of the different chiropractic services that we offer. If you’re concerned your condition can’t be treated with chiropractic services, please call us to set up a time to discuss a treatment plan suited for your specific needs.
Full Body Adjustments
Receiving a full body adjustment is a natural approach to solving the issue of common aches and pains. Chiropractic full body adjustments help place your body in the right position that allows the body to heal itself. This natural and drugless approach can reduce stress on the body and improve the overall health.
Subluxation is a term used in the chiropractic field to describe what happens when one of the vertebrae in your spine moves out of position. When this happens, the misaligned vertebrae create pressure and stress on the spinal nerves, blood vessels, and surrounding muscles. This pressure and stress can cause an imbalance in the body’s normal processes as the nerves in the spinal column extend to the entire body and its organs. As time goes on and the uncorrected subluxation settles, the damage to the nerve gets progressively worse and different stages of subluxation degeneration set in.
