FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do adjustments hurt?

All of our doctors are trained in the Activator instrument adjusting technique, which is a form of adjusting the spine that is very gentle and specific. All our Doctors are also trained in Thompson and Gonstead manual adjusting techniques. Most patients enjoy being adjusted.  Our Doctors will be happy to address any of your concerns before your adjustment.

Will I have to keep coming for life?

Your care with Millar Chiropractic will have a distinct start date and end date. We do not believe in year long contracts. But we do believe in getting to the true cause and correcting the problem. After your care is complete, if you wish to continue with maintenance care that is up to you. We will make your care PRN "As Needed by the Patient." Some patients find that chiropractic helps relieve their pain, aches and other symptoms without drugs or surgery so they decide it is worthwhile to at least have occasional maintenance visits - to continue to maintain the positive results they achieved. It is similar to dentistry in this regard. Most people find that a bit of maintenance (in dentistry - checkups and teeth cleaning) help to prevent major problems down the line. The same is true for your spine and chiropractic. Again just like the dentist this is up to you.

Are all patients adjusted the same?

No, each patient is different in so many ways. Not only is their body different, their bone alignment is different and also their conditions are different. So we adjust appropriately for the condition and the individual utilizing the most appropriate adjusting tool from our Chiropractic toolbox.

DTS (Decompression Traction) - What is DTS?

DTS is a form of traction that creates a negative pressure or vacuum that helps to suck the disc back into place.

DTS (Decompression Traction) - How effective is DTS?

Hundreds of thousands of patients with bulging and herniated discs have been treated using decompression traction. Most Doctors reported that they found the average success rate to be around 75-80% for lumbar patients and about 75% for cervical disc patients. The manufacturers of the decompression tables all claim success percentages in the 85% range, but most Doctors found those numbers to be unrealistic. We like to say DTS, decompression traction, has about a 75% success rate overall - which is great considering that does not involve drugs or surgery.

DTS (Decompression Traction) - Does it hurt?

Since 1998 we have done decompression traction on approximately 4,500 patients. Our extensive experience tells us that during treatment 25% of patients will have no pain at all from the decompression traction; and the majority - 50% of patients will have a feeling of instability but no pain. 

Can Millar Chiropractic Clinics help my bulging/herniated disc?

Not all bulging or herniated discs are created equal. Some are big, some are little. The same is true for the nerve canal size. The problem is when you get a big herniation at a small canal. The Doctors of Millar Chiropractic Clinics specialize in the treatment of bulging, prolapsed and herniated discs. They have many different tools designed and utilized to address those problems, and years of experience treating disc conditions.

I've had back surgery - Is chiropractic safe for me?

You know, Dr. Millar has had three back surgeries, and what got him into chiropractic is that chiropractic got him out pain. Not everyone who has had back surgery can have every kind of adjustment, but there may be adjustments that can help you.

What does a Free Consultation involve?

A Free Consultation involves sitting down for about 20 to 30 minutes with one of the Millar Senior Chiropractors to discuss your problem. No pressure, just a meeting. This will give you a chance to meet the Doctor, to see if you like him and for him to see if he can help you.
