How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic focuses on proper movement of the spinal joints that protect the nerves from improper pressure causing a lack of function and pain in the body. We would love to see if what you are experiencing is helped with chiropractic with a complimentary visit to the office. Please call us.

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

We use an Instrument adjusting technique and so hearing the "pop" "cracking" sounds that some expect from a more manual adjustment do not happen. If we use a drop table technique for your adjustments, you will hear the drop piece on the table dropping louder than the joint manipulation sounds. Hearing a joint pop is not indicative of the correct joint being moved. You can hear a pop when you self-adjust, but that doesn't mean you are correctly adjusting the joint causing the pressure on the nerve for the pain and lack of function. For more on this, please call and come in for a complimentary appointment with our doctor.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Yes, but varies depending upon your plan's coverage. Please call for a complimentary visit and see how we can help based on your coverage.

How Safe Is Chiropractic?

It is very safe and effective. There was a Palmer report done showing 87-90% effective rate!

Is Chiropractic Care Safe While I'm Pregnant?

Chiropractic is very safe while pregnant and recommended to have regular adjustments to keep the pelvic and low back balanced. There are ligaments to the uterus from the pelvic bones and sacrum that help to balance the constraint on the baby.

Can I Become Addicted To Chiropractic Adjustments?

When your body is well balanced due to staying well aligned, you enjoy feeling well and staying well. Who wouldn't want to be "addicted" to feeling good?

Is Chiropractic Safe For Children?

The ICPA4kids.org has great studies on how effective chiropractic care is for children. We love adjusting children of all ages, keeping their nervous system free from interference for optimal health and growth.

How Much Schooling Does A Chiropractor Have?

Outside of your undergraduate education, Doctors of Chiropractic obtain 3.5 years/ 10 trimesters of schooling depending on which College/university you attend.

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

Depending on your condition and the technique of the chiropractor you may be able to see get adjusted. Please call our office for a complimentary visit to see how we can help.

How Long Will It Take To Work?

Depending on your findings during your exam and x-rays performed at our office, results can change in as little as 2-4 weeks but long term correction can take anywhere from 6-12 months and in severe degenerative cases 2-3 years.
