When will Dr. Wendy be practicing chiropractics again?

Dr. Wendy is back!! In 2018, a car hit Dr. Wendy as she was running. That accident slowed her down a bit but she kept running. In early 2019, another car going 25 mph hit Dr. Wendy. This left her needing surgeries on her hip, shoulder, and wrist. After a long recovery period, she was just about ready to come back when a woman tried turning left striking Dr. Wendy’s truck in the front. Once again, she needed to have surgery on her other hip and sustained a TBI. She has been through a lot, but she is ready to get back to doing what she loves which is providing the best chiropractic care around.

What is the popping noise that is often associated with chiropractic care?

The popping is a release of pressure in the joints. Research has found that gas bubbles form in the joint causing pressure. The louder the pop, the larger the gas bubbles. As we age, the bubbles tend to be smaller. This accounts for the quieter popping in older people and explains why people who used to hear loud popping, tend to say it gets quieter over time. Popping does not equal a good adjustment. Some people do not pop at all but their joints gained the movement.

Does chiropractic care hurt?

Most of the time adjustments are not painful. Sometimes, however, adjustments can be uncomfortable because the tissue around the area is really sensitive and inflamed. If an adjustment is uncomfortable, the pain typically subsides very quickly.

What does a chiropractor treat?

Did you know that chiropractors are primary care physicians? Chiropractors have extensive training just as an MD and can treat a vast array of problems in all ages.
