How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

A chiropractic adjustment helps by releasing air from the spinal joint and allowing that joint to resume its normal position. As a secondary benefit you often receive a natural endorphin rush to the area which helps with inflammation, tight muscles, and discomfort.

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

No, not hearing a sound or “audible” does NOT mean that the adjustment didn’t reposition the joint or won’t receive the natural endorphin rush. It simply means that there wasn’t any air trapped within that particular join upon adjustment.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

All insurances are different. You can verify chiropractic coverage by calling your insurance agent or we can help you follow up with them. We accept most PPO insurances out of network and also accepts many in network insurance policies.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

Very Safe. There was a study done in 2010 that E. Ernst published regarding the deaths after chiropractic adjustments. There had been 26 documented fatalities ever up until that point in history. Compared to the census estimate that 225,000 people die in the US each year due to iatrogenic causes (relating to illness caused by medical examination and or treatment).

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Absolutely. Chiropractic is very important during pregnancy. I had my wife adjusted by myself and my colleague throughout both her pregnancies. Woman (while pregnant) develop ligament laxity in their pelvis and back. A woman’s entire body mechanics change so much while pregnant. Having regular adjustments throughout pregnancy can help relieve pressure off of the low back.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

There is no physiological evidence of addiction.

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

Yes. We had both our children adjusted within a month of them being born. It is great to get kids started early and aware of what good posture is and have them familiar with stretches and spinal maintenance.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

4 year college degree and 4 year doctorate.

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

Yes. As soon as you have been cleared by your surgeon. Typically after surgery you may feel really stiff and or sore in other regions of your body. Adjustments after surgery can really help you get back into things.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

Every person is different. It could be instantaneous but if we don’t see results in 6 visits then we may have to consider an alternative plan either within chiropractic and or in conjunction with physio therapy, home exercises and stretching.
