Linwood Chiropractors : FAQ

Like other Linwood chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

Once I start will I have to go forever?

Linwood NJ chiropractor, Dr. Santoro explains, “our care definitely has a beginning and an end.” After their initial care, most patients choose to follow a maintenance program to keep their bodies functioning like a well-oiled machine.

Does the Doctor have to “crack” my back?

There is sometimes a sound but it is not the Doctor “cracking” your bones. The sound is air shifting in the joints. Dr. Santoro uses several different types of manipulations, not all of them will produce an air shift.

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, as part of his treatment Dr. Santoro will give you exercise therapy to strengthen the muscles to assist in maintaining your adjustments.

Will I get adjusted on the 1st visit?

I rarely perform any treatment on the first visit to our office because I need ample time to study your examination and x-rays (if taken) in order to determine whether chiropractic will be of benefit.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I suffered from lower back pain and neck pain that cause headaches that would last for days.

    I was diagnosed with advanced degenerative disk disease and referred to a neurologist, who sent me for physical therapy. It helped a little, but I still had pain. I wanted to feel better, but I also worried about the progression of my condition. I have a young son and can't fall apart too quickly.

    I wish I would've come to Dr. Santoro sooner. I haven't had a headache since I started chiropractic treatment. I couldn't believe how much better I felt so quickly. I've saved a lot of money not having to buy so much Advil.

    Everyone in the office is so nice and makes me feel very comfortable. I have told all my family, friends and co-workers.

    Thank you!"

  • "Low Back Pain Relief
    Severe low back pain brought me to Santoro Chiropractic in January 2009. The pain sent tingling down my right leg all the way past my ankle. The severe pain had been going on for 5 months. I tried other treatments and muscle relaxers but found them to be too aggressive with no results. I wanted to go back in to work – pain free.

    A friend recommended I try Chiropractic, but I was doubtful it would really help me. I found Santoro Chiropractic to be peaceful and Dr. Santoro to be gentle – unlike my previous treatment. I realized that stretching is key along with my adjustments. I have no more leg pain and increased range of motion. I like that Chiropractic can keep me working without any unnecessary surgeries.

    I feel Chiropractic works and keeps me in better health. I recommend that everyone who is sick or in pain try a Chiropractor – the results will surprise you!"
