Frequently Asked Questions

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health science based on correcting interference in the nerve system. This interference is caused by physical, chemical, and emotional stress.  Specific, gentle chiropractic adjustments remove that interference so your body will function at its optimum potential. (that means you will be the best YOU ever.)

What is an adjustment? Does it hurt?

An adjustment is a specific, non-invasive “thrust” delivered by an instrument called the Activator, or a thrust delivered by hand which is called a “manual adjustment.” The purpose of the adjustment is to remove nerve interference from your body to allow you to heal and function better. It’s fast and non-painful.

How many times do I have to come?

That’s easy… come as often as you want to heal, feel great, defy age, and live pain-free! Because each individual is unique on every level, it’s difficult to know how many times you will need to be adjusted in order to reach each of your health goals. For practical purposes we can estimate your initial schedule, but that is subject to change according to your rate of progress and goals. One thing is for sure: YOUR goals and expectations will determine your care plan – frequency and duration.

Will I feel better after getting adjusted?

Your care is unique to YOU, and how your body heals and responds is also unique.  Most people are very happy with the results of chiropractic care. Many of them feel relief from pain almost immediately after an adjustment.  It’s also possible that the pain may require several to many adjustments to fade.  Rarely, a small percentage of people may experience a temporary increase in their symptoms before they start to get better. No matter what course your recovery takes, you should also know that beyond the removal of your symptoms, chiropractic care offers an opportunity for much greater overall health, if you choose to use it for that purpose as well.

What services do you offer?

We offer the most personalized supportive chiropractic care possible including state-of-the-art diagnostic thermal computer scans; manual and instrument adjusting. We also offer specialized pre and post-partum care using the Webster technique, craniosacral therapy, and intersegmental traction in addition to the adjustments. We have a community of practice members who care about their health and the well-being of those around them, to encourage and support you on your own journey towards well-being.

Will chiropractic care be expensive?

That depends on how you define “expensive”. You are always in control of your finances. We won’t spend a dime of your money without your permission.  Is it going to require more of your money than an over-the-counter or prescription drug?  Probably so.  Is it as expensive as surgery or a life surrendered to drugs and their side effects?  NO!  Considering the benefits, the experience at this office, the all-inclusiveness of our services, and the cost of providing you with the best health care, our fees are very reasonably priced. We have an array of financial options including family plans, so you can save money on the care you deserve. Call and ask us for details!

What if I feel fine? Do I need to keep coming up?

That is always up to you. The truth is that those who stop care when they are “feeling fine” often return later with the same problem, only it’s sometimes worse. On the other hand, those that commit to regular care find their problem rarely returns: as well, they enjoy a higher quality of life and health. If regular chiropractic care keeps you “feeling fine”, why would you choose to stop doing what’s working for you? It’s kind of like this: if your teeth feel fine, do you stop brushing them? 

We are here to help you live and function at your best. Together we will find the path that works best for you.
