A: Everyone...from birth to adulthood. Even after birth, a child
may have potential damaging effects to the nervous system from
the birth process itself. Infancy, toddlers, childhood, teen
years and maturity. And yes, even if you are symptom free. Chiropractic is a healing art which is based upon a normally
functioning nervous system. Without this, your body will
experience a lot of havoc; even with the absence of symptoms.

a to a properly functioning state. An adjustment is a
specific means of correcting vertebrae's that have abnormal
movement patterns which lead to the nervous system functioning
Does an adjustment hurt?
A: Rarely does an adjustment hurt and yes, they are extremely
safe. Doctors of chiropractic have various techniques. Dr. Weidler utilizes the most gentle and effective techniques
available in the field today. Although the results are
astounding, many of our practice members are surprised
at Dr. Weidler's gentle technique..
Can I see a chiropractor if I am pregnant?
A: Absolutely! Dr. Weidler sees many pregnant women.
Chiropractic care is essential as the rapid growth of the baby
changes and interferes with the body's structural changes and
adaptations to the growing baby. This added stress often leads
to discomfort and difficulties. Specific, gentle adjustments,
restore balance. This results in greater musculoskeletal
function. For more information about pregnancy and
