How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care removes misalignments of the spine which can cause pain and disease. These misalignments are called subluxations. When they are present, they can irritate nerves and surrounding tissue and cause pain.

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

No. There are times when you will not hear the sound that is most associated with the adjustment but that does not mean the adjustment didn’t work. The noise (pop) that you hear is gas being released from the joint that is being moved and not the actual bone popping and therefore sometimes we will get the spine to move into the correct position without you hearing the sound.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Most insurances cover some or all of the cost for your chiropractic visit. Usually you will be required to pay a copay or coinsurance once your deductible has been met. Each person’s individual plan varies based on which options they chose when signing up for their insurance.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is very safe. The chiropractic adjustment does not hurt at all. There is occasional soreness present after the initial visit but this soreness should be no more than the soreness felt after an initial workout or the soreness felt after strenuous exercise.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Yes. Many of our patient’s receive chiropractic care throughout their entire pregnancy. During pregnancy women will usually carry more weight which puts and added stress on the spine. Chiropractic care can help alleviate this pain and allow for a better pregnancy.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

No. Although most people enjoy the benefits and feeling after getting an adjustment it is not addictive. The adjustment makes you feel better and therefore most people enjoy returning for further adjustments.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes. We are a family centered clinic and therefore we treat adults as well as kids. Kids can get adjusted soon after birth and it is often very beneficial for babies to get adjusted after birth due to the birthing process being so traumatic to the spine of a newborn.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

Chiropractors usually will complete undergraduate studies where they will obtain a bachelor’s degree in Biology or something similar. Afterwards, they will attend chiropractic school for another 4 years for a total 8 years of schooling.

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

Yes. Generally a chiropractor with perform a thorough examination and take x-rays before performing an adjustment on you. During this assessment the doctor will determine whether an adjustment to a questionable area is necessary or needed.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

Each person improves at a different rate and there are many factors that determine how quickly a person responds to care. Usually within the initial 3-6 visits, a person will notice improvements. Several patients notice improvements instantly even before leaving the office after being adjusted.
