How much will my treatment cost? Do you take my insurance?
Treatment costs will vary, depending on the severity of your condition and how long you’ve had it.
Your one-on-one consultation with the Doctor is always free. Since we are providers for just about every existing insurance plan, including your automobile accident coverage, you may be responsible only for a small co-pay or deductible.
As always, we are happy to file your claims for you at no cost.
How long is a typical office visit?
Your initial visit will take 30-40 min.
We set aside special times during the day for our new patients, so we can spend the unhurried, uninterrupted time with you that you need. A regular office visit can be as quick as 5-10 min.
Your time is valuable to us. We strive to be on time, all the time.
How long will it take me to get well?
Getting you well as fast as possible is what we’re all about.
Time-wise, your recovery depends on several factors, including your condition, your age, the length of time you’ve had this condition, how closely you follow your treatment plan and any complicating factors. Your doctor will explain your treatment plan in detail, and discuss the recovery time for your condition.
We’re proud of our success rate, and we work aggressively to make sure you get your life back, right away.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
Doctors of chiropractic undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences, similar to that of medical doctors. In some areas, such as anatomy, physiology, rehabilitation, nutrition and public health, they receive more intensive education than their MD counterparts. The typical chiropractor has completed at least 9 academic years of study.
Because of the hands-on nature of chiropractic, and the intricate adjusting techniques, a significant portion of time is spent in clinical training. In total, the chiropractic curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience.
What is a Chiropractic adjustment?
An adjustment is the precise manipulation of a joint to increase motion and restore function.
Joint problems can have several different causes, including trauma, overuse, lack of muscular support, normal wear and tear, or excessive scar tissue.
Patients often report feeling pain relief, relaxation and improved movement almost immediately after an adjustment. Adjustments are also helpful in preventing or reducing the wear and tear our bodies experience daily. Professional athletes have long relied on chiropractic care to help them recover from injuries and to improve their performance.
What if I don’t get better?
If you’re not responding to treatment in a reasonable length of time, we will immediately refer you to an appropriate specialist.
Even though our patients enjoy a terrific rate of recovery, we understand that certain conditions fall outside our scope of practice.
Remember: your full recovery is our goal. We will do whatever it takes to achieve that.
Will I have to go to a chiropractor forever?
No, you will not get ‘addicted’ to Chiropractic!
It is helpful, though, to think of Chiropractic as maintenance for your spine.
Just as brushing your teeth helps prevent serious dental problems, Chiropractic check-ups help maintain a pain-free, healthy spine. This leads to a healthy nervous system and helps prevent diseased states of the body.
