A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space), through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body), in the joints and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
Chiropractic is a profession within the health care field that deals with the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body. A chiropractor will diagnose, as well as help prevent, injuries and disorders of the nerves, muscles, and bones.
While we will diagnose and treat these resultant injuries and disorders, the main objective is the removal of nerve interference allowing the body to heal itself without invasive procedures and/or drugs.
As would be the case with any other field of care, our patients at Bunch Chiropractic - Tustin receive a thorough consultation including history and examination of their major complaint. After considering possible causes of the patients’ condition a diagnosis is established and a treatment plan is created.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Chiropractors in Tustin
A chiropractor is a primary care physician that works to improve your health by addressing the structure of the body and improving the function of the nervous system.
Chiropractic care comprises many different techniques and ways of adjusting one's structure and improving nervous system function. There are techniques that use manipulation of the body, bones, muscles, and joints. There are other techniques that are very specialized and can affect the nervous system function with very gentle work on muscle and other tissues. The fundamental common denominator of all chiropractic care is a relieving nervous system malfunction so the body can operate in a healthier way.
Yes, chiropractors are doctors. They can evaluate your health condition and come up with a treatment plan for helping you. Some health problems fall out of the normal scope of the chiropractor's treatment area. Patients with these types of problems should be referred out to the appropriate type of doctor. One idea that is important is that even in these cases where a patient has a health problem that is not addressed by chiropractic care, their body can still benefit in getting care so as to make it stronger and function better and be more likely to heal.
Chiropractors, in general, evaluate a body, looking for signs of nervous system interference or malfunction. They then work with different techniques to address the cause of what is interfering with the nervous system, with the end intention of improving function, restoring normal nervous system communication, and having the body working and healing and healthy.
Of course, chiropractors are useful. Many people use chiropractic every day as one tool to keep themselves healthy and functioning well. Not unlike a mechanic that works on your car, a chiropractor can work on your body and improve your structure, your nervous system function and therefore improve your overall health.
Yes, chiropractic works. There are hundreds of clinical trials and studies that has shown the effectiveness and validity of chiropractic.
Millions of adjustments and chiropractic treatments are given each day around the world. Chiropractic is a very safe treatment modality.
Whenever anyone is getting their body worked on, there are always possible 'side effects'. Body soreness (like one can have a day after a workout) is a common example.
Common sense answer is that it all depends on what is going on. A 50-year-old who has a low back problem and is overweight doesn't exercise and has a very poor diet is going to need more care than a 25-year-old who is in shape, and takes care of themselves.
This varies between offices and with the different types of services rendered. For example, one office can offer an adjustment by the doctor and massage by a therapist. Typical costs for an adjustment by a chiropractor fall under $100.
You should choose our office if you are interested in a thorough evaluation and personal care. This means we will listen to you and figure out what works best for your case.
Finding a chiropractor near you can be tricky. Like many things, one needs to find that 'right fit'. One can go online and search for a chiropractor that is situated near where they work or live. But, it is a good idea to go in and just 'check out' the place and see if you feel comfortable with the office and the doctor.
Chiropractic adjustments typically do not hurt. There are cases where a patient can be in pain, have an injury and inflammation at a certain level. In these cases, it is possible that just touching the area, let alone moving it, can be uncomfortable and can hurt.
No. There are different techniques to adjust different joints. There are techniques where a patient is laying on their side to get adjusted. And in that position, many different joints can be addressed. One can get the idea that the same adjustment is happening but that is not always true.
Many people manipulate themselves and cause a cracking sound. Many may consider this 'adjusting' themselves. This is not completely accurate. A good adjustment by a chiropractor is intended to improve motion, and nervous system function and is part of an overall plan. Cracking one's own neck is not part of a plan. A common question along these lines is "Is cracking my own neck or back healthy?" If one is doing this repeatedly (many do this several times a day) it can be bad for the body. It can cause some joints to get too loose and unstable.
