Does chiropractic hurt?
Some chiropractors use techniques that are rougher than others. Not at Seaman Chiropractic Center! We pride ourselves on gentle, non-force techniques for the comfort of the patient.
The Thompson drop, flexion distraction and activator are all designed to be gentle, comfortable and relaxing even for the most skittish of patients.

Is it expensive?
Prevention and addressing the issue when it first arises is the most cost effective way to deal with your health. Neck and back problems account for
the most common reason (outside of childbirth) for hospitalization. If left untreated, it can lead to pain and dysfunction. Chiropractic care plays
a very significant role in pain relief and prevention. A study has been conducted that showed more and more patients with neck and back pains have
turned to chiropractors to alleviate these health concerns. The usual reasons are the patients didn’t want drugs and surgery or those other options didn’t work.
Traditional medical care is more expensive than chiropractic care, especially emergency care. One year of our care is less expensive than one day
in the hospital. Chiropractic works with your own body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care costs approximately 90% less than the price of
an operation, which is also a scary and dangerous alternative.
Are you a “real doctor”?
Chiropractors, including Dr. Seaman, complete 4 years of undergraduate study and 5 years at a nationally certified chiropractic school,
which includes clinical work. Chiropractors must also complete the same continuing education hours as your medical doctor each year to keep their license (and their methods) current. The difference between chiropractors and medical doctors is that we concentrate on natural medicine, treatment and remedies and they concentrate on pharmaceuticals and surgery.
Always make sure the doctors you are seeing are fully licensed and have at the minimum some real life experience.
Dr. Cynthia Seaman has over 28 years of experience in chiropractic, acupuncture, and holistic health care.
Will I have to go forever?
You go for as long as you feel that you are deriving benefits. Once our patients understand what we are doing to improve their overall health and slowing
down their aging process, it doesn’t seem like a problem doing maintenance. In fact, you can read some patient testimonials here. They look at it similar
to going to the dentist for a teeth cleaning or changing the oil in their car.
Is it more than just pain relief?
We see you as a whole person and understand that some of the symptoms you experience are part of the larger picture and we get to the center of the problem,
not just symptom relief. Working with your central nervous system, we elevate your health, immune system and healing abilities, and that in turn eliminates
your pain. We eliminate the interference that prevents you from healing, and since our bodies are self-healing, it allows the power of your body to heal itself.
At Seaman Chiropractic Center we offer multiple adjusting techniques for specific conditions and the unique flexion distraction table specific for arthritis,
herniated, bulged, or irritated discs, pinched nerves, stenosis, and improving function of spinal joints.
Is the atmosphere of the office relaxing and comfortable?
Some doctors’ offices just don't feel that great to be in. You are going to feel better in an office that welcomes you, is interested in your well-being, and respects your time.
The office of Seaman Chiropractic is very pleasant, relaxing and comfortable. We run on time, and get you in and out so you can get on with your day, perfectly well adjusted!
9 out of 10 patients surveyed said that one of the most noticeable things about our facility is the level of comfort they feel when they visit our office, as well as the warmth and friendliness of our staff.
