Frequently Asked Questions
What services do you provide?
We are very unique in the way we practice. We have invested substantially in advanced trainings and equipment that allows us to utilize a large variety of tools and treatment modalities. In our office we offer chiropractic adjustments that can be performed by hand or with the use of an adjusting tool so there is no twisting or popping. We have specialized equipment that will measure range of motion and strength to assess how much spinal strengthening needs to be done and to track progress. We have equipment that allows us to isolate specific regions of the body for therapeutic exercises. Physical therapy modalities such as electrical stimulation and ultrasound is often part of our treatment. We have massage therapists on staff. We have been trained in the use of a class IV laser that accelerates healing and reduces inflammation. We also have various methods of decompressing and tractioning the spine to promote healing of complicated spinal ailments such as disc herniation and degenerative disc disease. We have also done training in the use of injection therapies to reduce muscle knots and spasms.
Do you take insurance?
Yes, we are contracted with most major medical plans. We also accept liability insurances like car insurance.
How much does care cost if I don’t have insurance?
We have very affordable cash prices. If you mention our new patient special your first visit is only $25. After we can evaluate your condition and make a proper diagnosis we can determine which services you need and what the costs will be. For example, someone who only needs adjustments will have a different cost associated with their care than someone who needs adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy modalities, therapeutic exercises, spinal decompression, class IV laser treatments and trigger point injections.
What should I expect on my first visit
You will need to fill out some paperwork so we can see your past history and get the proper legal documents signed authorizing care, etc. We will then do a detailed history, examination and we will provide whatever treatment is appropriate for that day. We then will verify any insurance, formulate a treatment plan and let you know what the cost of the treatment will be based on your specific condition.
What training does a chiropractor have?
A chiropractor will have a bachelor’s degree and then will attend 4 years of chiropractic school to receive their doctorate of chiropractic medicine. They must pass 4 national board exams and a chiropractic physical therapy board exam. They also must pass a state board examination. Their education is very similar to other doctors such as optometrists and dentists. Chiropractors are licenced as chiropractic physicians and have the ability to diagnose with the use of x-rays, mri’s, blood work, CT scans, ultrasound or whatever is necessary to manage your care. Our treatments consist of chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy modalities such as electrical stimulation or ultrasound, therapeutic exercises, injection therapies and often lifestyle and diet recommendations. We do not have the ability prescribe prescription medications, however, we are highly trained in the use of natural remedies.
