So, what is chiropractic?

The only health care system that works to maximize the natural, God-given strengths of the human body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

What is a subluxation?

A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of one or more spinal vertebrae that interferes with the spinal cord and/or spinal nerves.

What causes subluxation?

A fall, injury, sudden jar, or trauma can displace a vertebra. Other causes include improper sleeping conditions or bad habits, poor posture, occupational risks, incorrect lifting practices, obesity, lack of rest, lack of exercise, and stress.

What is an adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is given to align the subluxation to take the pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. This will restore proper nerve supply to the body's organs and allow normal body function. An optimum functioning spine equals optimum health.

How does an adjustment feel and how long will it take?

Patients report that being adjusted feels great. However, in some cases, the individual may be sore for the first couple of times. An adjustment takes only a minute or two, but the vital nerve energy it releases can last for hours, days, or even weeks, depending on the stage of your care.

What research has been done on chiropractic?

Literally, thousands of health studies including research by the U.S. government have shown that chiropractic is beneficial in maximizing health, boosting immunity, relieving the symptoms of sickness and disease, and restoring normal function back to the body.

Should I be adjusted if I am sick?

YES! An adjustment will help your body regain control and balance to better fight off your condition.

Can I be adjusted if I have had an operation on my spine; have old, weak, brittle, or broken bones?

There are many very gentle techniques that can be employed to assure proper safety for every patient – from newborns to the elderly.

Can I be adjusted if I am pregnant?

For normal development of the baby and ease and safety of the birth, being adjusted during pregnancy is essential.

Can I adjust myself?

No. Even chiropractors need chiropractors to adjust them. The worst spines are those of people who manipulate their own spines. Manipulation can even be dangerous. An adjustment moves a specific subluxation in a specific direction.

How much will it cost?

Each and every person is different. Call our office and schedule a free consultation with the doctor. During the consultation, the doctor will determine if further examinations are necessary. The cost of those exams would be discussed with you before any services are rendered. The cost of a typical exam including any necessary x-rays, as well as, a report of findings with the doctor, can range from $120 to $360. Call our office and find out if we have any New Patient Specials going on.

Do you accept insurance?

We are part of a federal discount program that allows us to legally discount care below insurance rates. Our practice is out of network with all insurance companies. We do take Medicare, in addition to, Personal Injury Insurance and Worker’s Comp.

How Many Visits Will I need?

Each and every person is different. The doctor will go over all the recommendations in that Doctor’s Report of Findings to determine how we are going to help you reach your health goals and correct the root problem. We see people anywhere from 36 visits to 78 visits.  It depends on how your body is functioning and the results found on the examinations.
