How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Many insurance plans include chiropractic. We will call to verify what benefits you may have. We also offer affordable payment options that allow you to get the care you need.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is extremely safe in general, and Activator technique reduces any risks even further with specific, controlled pressures.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Yes. We see many patients throughout their pregnancies. Chiropractic treatments reduce pain, and also help prepare the body for delivery. Patients also report their recovery after delivery tends to be much faster when they've been adjusted throughout their pregnancy.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

Much like going to the dentist to get your teeth cleaned PREVENTS cavities, getting adjusted regularly will prevent many of the pains that keep you from doing the things you love. Preventative care also reduces the silent decay of your joints known as degeneration. You can't reverse spinal decay, but regular care can help prevent it.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes. There are many great research articles on childhood ailments such as ear aches (otitis media), colic, and digestive issues. We see many children and babies in our office, and love caring for their tiny, yet powerful, nervous systems.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

Chiropractors have as many, and sometimes more, hours of education than your average medical doctor, osteopath, or dentist. Our education strongly emphasizes neurology, spinal anatomy, radiology, along with extensive training in the life sciences. This can take 8-10 years of training. On top of that, Activator technique is a specialty within the profession that takes several more years, and hundreds of hours of training and certification.

Can I See A Chiropractor If I've Had Back Surgery?

Yes. We receive many referrals from some of the top spinal surgeons in the country. Because Activator technique is so gentle and specific, we can safely treat the areas around surgical sites to reduce the effects of added physical stress due to compensation after surgery.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

This all depends on several factors: How long have you had the problem? How many times have you had this problem? How severe is your pain? Does your pain radiate? Do you have any signs of spinal decay? We will listen to your history, assess your spine for misalignment, do testing to confirm results, and discuss treatment recommendations and payment options. If we find misalignments of your spine, we can help you. If we don't find misalignments of your spine, we will refer you to the right doctor to get you help.
