Many of our new clients have unanswered questions about Chiropractic Care. Below are some frequently asked questions from patients.

Are Chiropractors Doctors?

Yes. Today’s Chiropractic Physicians receive education and training very similar to Medical Doctors. Dr. Swanekamp received a four-year undergraduate bachelors of arts degree from Duke University. He then attended the New York Chiropractic College from 1983 through 1986, and then received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in December of 1986.

Chiropractic Physicians sit for national and state board examinations that are extremely rigorous. The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners administers the science and technical portions of the boards. Then, each state administers a clinical examination before granting a license. Dr. Swanekamp is licensed in both New York and New Jersey.

Do Medical Doctors refer patients to Chiropractic Doctors?

Yes. Many Medical Doctors regularly refer their patients to Chiropractors for the treatment of back and neck problems. If you’re not sure whether your physician will cooperate in referring you for chiropractic care, ask him or her. You may be surprised at how open your physician is to referring you for care.

Once I start getting adjustments, will I have to keep getting adjusted from a Chiropractor the rest of my life?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions by prospective chiropractic patients. It stems from a commonly held belief about chiropractic care that sounds something like, “once you get going, you always have to go.”

Nothing could be further from the truth. Getting chiropractic adjustments in no way alters the spine so that you will forever need an adjustment. In addition, we will never pressure you into coming back forever. Some patients decide however, that they would like to maintain the progress that they have made with chiropractic care. They choose to receive periodic checkup visits to prevent a re-occurrence of their problem.
