Frequently Asked Questions

It is understandable that you may have questions if you have never been to Island Oasis Chiropractic or another chiropractor before. We want you to rest assured that you are in great hands at our practice, with a knowledgeable, warm and welcoming team ready to help you. If your question is not addressed below, please contact our office.

What ages and conditions do you see?

Dr. Cochran is skilled in helping patients of all ages and levels of health, from babies to the elderly.

Is it going to hurt?

During a chiropractic adjustment, you may feel pressure, especially if the area we’re addressing is tender. The adjustment itself, however, doesn’t hurt and usually feels good.

Aside from my chiropractic visits, what can I do to get better?

It is important to us that you feel empowered to take control of your health. Dr. Cochran will prescribe exercises based on your particular needs. She will also give you further information tailored to your lifestyle. There are some general guidelines we can all follow. For women, do not cross your legs or sit with your feet tucked under you. Men should avoid keeping their wallet in their back pocket and sitting on it. We will give you many tips and advice you can use in your daily life.

Do I have to keep seeing a chiropractor for the rest of my life?

When you visit the dentist for a cleaning, do you return for a follow-up? How about when you see the eye doctor or your general practitioner for a physical? You need to have your spine checked regularly. If you instead wait until you’re in pain or experience an injury, you will end up needing more visits.

How often should I return if I’m under maintenance or wellness care?

Your maintenance plan is tailored to your lifestyle. You might start feeling out of alignment once a month, or it might be a couple of months before you need a checkup. If you overdo it working in the yard or playing with the kids, we recommend you make an appointment immediately instead of waiting until it becomes a larger issue.
