What do Chiropractors do?
A Doctor of Chiropractic assesses the spinal column for proper alignment and motion. A chiropractic adjustment is used to correct a misalignment and return the body to proper neuromusculoskeletal function.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care?
Benefits vary between patients, but as the body returns to proper function one may notice improved flexibility, circulation, balance, stamina, sleep and cognition.
Who can needs care?
Anyone from newborns to senior citizens benefit from care. Student-athletes (middle > HS) also benefit greatly from chiropractic care by improving their performance and maintaining correct neuromusculoskeletal development as they grow.
What can I expect during my first appointment?
Your first appointment will include a detailed health history consultation, comprehensive examination, and a spinal adjustment.
How long will an average appointment take?
Routine office visits consist of a spinal evaluation and corresponding chiropractic adjustment. On average they take 10-15 minutes.
What about insurance?
This is a direct-pay office. Insurance only covers pain, not performance. It is very common for pain to be absent even though the root cause is still present. Documentation can be provided upon request for possible insurance reimbursement.
How many visits do I need?
That answer is specific to each person based on factors like their health history, recent injuries, daily routines, etc.
Do I need a care plan?
That depends on you! Most people benefit from a formal, structured care plan consisting of a set amount of visits over a set amount of time as this usually leads to better and longer lasting results. We call this Proactive Care; the frequency of visits is based on the health history, exam results and your availability.
Others may not want, require, or be able to make that formal commitment, for that reason we offer a Reactive Care option. It is best for those with busy, unpredictable schedules, or those who simply want chiropractic care when they decide they need it.
