Frequently Asked Questions
Actually, not at all. Dr. Miller uses a computerized instrument called the proadjuster to provide gentle adjustments that is much less aggressive than the manual twisting turning and cracking adjustments.
D.D. Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, believed in a natural healing philosophy. It involved slight adjustments to the body to produce results without the need for drugs or surgery. In fact, his first patient was a partially deaf man. With a simple, natural adjustment, the man could hear much better the following day. This is the foundation of chiropractic healing.
The educational requirements of a chiropractic physician are 9 years of total education, equivalent to medical school. This includes 4 years of pre-medical undergraduate education followed by an additional 5 years of post graduate/doctoral education at an accredited chiropractic college. Once accepted in chiropractic school students undergo intensive classroom and clinical hands-on training averaging 32-36 credit hour trimesters. In some areas such as anatomy, physiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, and public health, chiropractic physicians receive more intensive education than medical doctors. As part of their professional training in their last year, chiropractors must complete a minimum of a one year clinical based internship program dealing with actual hands on patient care.
Following graduation chiropractic physicians must pass their state licensing board and the NBCE, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, a distinguished honor. Dr. Miller became a board-certified chiropractic physician in 2005, following graduation.
Once board certified, chiropractic physicians must meet yearly continuing education requirements to maintain their licensure.
Think of your chiropractic physician as a primary care doctor who focuses on the root cause of the problem without the use of medications or surgery. They specialize in neuromusculoskeletal conditions and nutritionally treat many primary care conditions, like heart disease and diabetes.

Don't worry Dr. Miller will not tell you he wants to see you 3 times a week for the rest of your life. However chiropractic treatment is based on continuity. Similar to physical therapy-it will take a series of treatments. As a matter of fact any treatment that works is based on continuity. Think about an orthodontist-you don’t take braces off after one day-it takes time. A diet also doesn’t happen overnight. The treatment plan Dr. Miller prescribes will give you the best opportunity to heal without the use of drugs or surgery.
Absolutely! Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.
Also, Dr. Miller uses a gentle computerized instrument for all his adjustments that does not involve any aggressive twisting, turning, or cracking. For more information click on the "computerized instrument adjusting tab" under services.
Yes! Dr. Miller receives referrals from his established network of medical professionals willing to do what's best for the patient. And if Dr. Miller does not feel he is the appropriate physician for a patient's case, he does not hesitate to refer to an appropriate medical doctor.
Chiropractors pride themselves on taking a natural, drugless approach to helping their patients reach their health goals. Essentially, the basic principle upon which the entire profession is built is that the body has the amazing ability to heal itself (under the right conditions), and it is the chiropractor’s job to help create an environment to facilitate this.
Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, chiropractors focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and, if there are shifts, helping the spine come back into alignment.
In other words, chiropractors are experts at analyzing posture and how it relates to spinal problems. They are trained in the art of detection, function, and restoration. Outward muscular postural changes add up to changes in spinal and nervous system function. Your brain must now adapt to these altered posture patterns which leads to chronic movement dysfunctions increasing the likelihood of future injury. Based on individual needs your chiropractor can design a program of correction for you to help improve posture. Targeted exercises and movements will be designed to optimize muscular efficiency so you are less prone to fatigue.
A Chiropractic adjustment (spinal manipulation) is the use of a specific force in a precise direction that helps normalize spinal function. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones to a more normal position or motion, restoring body's natural healing.
