Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I see a Chiropractor?
Chiropractic care is essential to be healthy. Stress causes subluxations. Subluxations adversely affect the nervous system and functions of the body. Chiropractic care removes subluxations which restores optimum function of the nervous system.
Do children need chiropractic care?
Yes. Studies have shown that up to 99% of even the healthiest babies have stress on their nervous system due to subluxations. In order for children to grow happy and healthy, regular chiropractic care is essential.
Are all patients adjusted the same way?
No. The Gonstead technique provides a method of analysis. It helps us determine what, when, where and why to adjust. Once that is determined each adjustment given is specifically designed for that person at that time.
What is your new patient procedure?
In our office, the first visit is used for us to get to know each other. We will have you fill out our practice member application. Then you will receive a tour of the office to get acclimated, and so you feel at home. After that, we will perform a consultation, so we can better understand what is going on.
The next step to starting care will be our neurological assessment. At that point, a decision will be made on whether or not you need x-rays. If needed, they will be taken in our state of the art digital x-ray suite.
Once we gather all of our data, we will create a unique care plan based on your individual needs. This care plan will be presented to you after you attend our orientation, where you will be acclimated to the culture of our office.
When you make the decision to start care, we will provide your first adjustment.
Once I get adjusted do I have to keep coming back forever?
No. You are free to come and go as you would like. Chiropractic care can be related to exercise. You only have to keep getting chiropractic care as long as you want to express your full potential.
Is chiropractic care expensive?
Chiropractic care may lower your health care bills, according to a 2004 study from the UCLA School of Public Health. Another study demonstrated that people under chiropractic care experienced 30% lower health care costs than medical patients. One final study from 2004 revealed that the number of sick days, average cost of care and hospitalizations decreased when under chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is an investment in your health rather than an expense.
Do you accept insurance?
No*. Insurance companies dictate the amount, type, and price of care we can offer. Insurance companies do not cover principled, neurologically based chiropractic care. Therefore we cannot accept insurance.
We make care as affordable as possible. We offer care plans utilizing individual and family savings plans. No matter what the situation we will always work to make the care affordable for everyone.
