Frequently Asked Questions

What conditions can chiropractic care help with?
Chiropractic care can help with a wide range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, joint pain, and even some non-musculoskeletal issues like asthma and allergies. It’s most commonly sought for relief from acute or chronic pain.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is considered safe when performed by a licensed and qualified chiropractor. Chiropractic Doctors undergo extensive training to ensure patient safety. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and drug-free. Chiropractors primarily use manual adjustments, exercises, and lifestyle recommendations to treat their patients.

What happens during a chiropractic appointment?

The chiropractor will typically perform a thorough assessment of your condition, which may include a physical examination, a review of your medical history, and possible diagnostic imaging (x-rays). They perform manual adjustments to correct misalignments in the spine.

How much does it cost?

Our first day fee for x-rays and an examination is only $45. This could vary if your particular case is more complex. Our office donates $45 of initial fees to local charities as part of the Give Back Movement.

Is chiropractic care covered by insurance?

Chiropractic care is often covered by health insurance plans. It is essential to check with your insurance provider to understand the extent of your coverage and specific requirements or limitations. Most insurance plans do not cover wellness or maintenance care. We have financial options to suit your situation.

Will I get adjusted at my first visit?

To ensure a thorough review of your examination and imaging, our doctors typically need time to look over your specific case to give you their best recommendation of care and will adjust you at your following visit to review with you their findings.

Are chiropractic adjustments painful?

Chiropractic adjustments are not usually painful. There may be some mild discomfort or pressure during the adjustment and many patients experience immediate relief after adjustments.
Why do athletes get chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care can help athletes by optimizing musculoskeletal function, reducing pain, and enhancing performance. Chiropractors may use adjustments to align the spine and joints, addressing issues like muscle imbalances, joint restrictions, and injury prevention. This can improve flexibility, range of motion, and overall physical function. Many athletes utilize chiropractic care as part of their wellness and injury prevention routines.

How many chiropractic sessions are needed for relief?

The number of sessions needed varies from person to person and depends on the condition being treated. Some individuals find relief after just a few sessions, while others with chronic issues may require ongoing care to manage symptoms and maintain spinal health. Many people choose to use chiropractic care as part of their ongoing wellness routine to maintain and prevent any future sickness or discomfort.

Can I see a chiropractor if I’ve had surgery or a serious injury?

In many cases, yes. Chiropractors are trained to work with patients who have had surgeries or injuries. They will take your medical history into account and may adjust their techniques to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Can I combine chiropractic care with other forms of treatment?

Yes. Chiropractic care can often be used with other healthcare approaches, including physical therapy, massage therapy, and medical treatment. It’s important to communicate with your healthcare providers to ensure safe, coordinated care.

Once I start chiropractic care, will I always need to go?

The need for ongoing chiropractic care depends on individual circumstances, lifestyle factors, treatment goals, and the nature of the health issues being addressed. Many individuals choose to see a chiropractor as part of their wellness routine to maintain good musculoskeletal health, even when they’re not experiencing pain or specific issues.

Is it safe to get adjusted while pregnant?

Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can be safe and beneficial for many women. Our chiropractors are trained and experienced in prenatal care, using gentle, pregnancy-safe techniques, to help with issues like back pain or other discomfort.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Chiropractic care for children, like adults, removes interference in the nervous system, allowing the body to function at its full potential. Chiropractic care can help with issues like colic, breastfeeding difficulties, digestion, sleep, ear infections, torticollis, or other musculoskeletal concerns that could arise from birth trauma.
