Frequently asked questions


Will the adjustment hurt?

Adjustments generally don't cause the patient any discomfort, and are very gentle. Sometimes, a clicking sound, or cavitation, is produced during an adjustment. This is a result of carbon dioxide leaving the joint.

I've had spinal surgery in the past. Can I get adjusted?

It is very important that you inform your chiropractor of your previous surgical procedure. Your chiropractor will want to know the approximate date and spinal location in which the surgery was performed. The chiropractor will then perform the appropriate imaging and tests to determine if chiropractic will be a good fit.

Even if you've had surgery, a chiropractor may still be able to help. If it's determined that chiropractic is not appropriate, your chiropractor will refer to another healthcare provider for further evaluation.

dOES CHIROPRACTIC HELP YOU power through your day?

According to the American Chiropractic Association, 50% of working Americans admit to back pain symptoms each year. Experts estimate that 80% of the population will have back pain at some point in their life. Taking care of your spine with chiropractic care will keep you from becoming a pain statistic. Preventing problems before they start is more effective and less expensive.

Is chiropractic care expensive?

Compared to other types of health care procedures, chiropractic is much less expensive. Even the most minor surgery is more expensive than an entire chiropractic treatment plan.

I don't have pain. Why should I get adjusted?

Adjustments will keep your body functioning at peak potential. You'll have proper range of motion, prevent spinal decay, and live without discomfort. People who get adjusted regularly perform better because their bodies function at the highest level. They increase flexibility, and reduce their risk of injury.

Will my insurance cover chiropractic treatment?

Most insurance companies do cover chiropractic. Our chiropractic assistants will call your insurance company to verify your insurance benefits, so you'll be aware of your health coverage throughout care. For patients with Medicare, chiropractic adjustments ARE covered.

I heard chiropractic adjustments can cause stroke or paralysis. Is this true?

These cases are extremely rare. According to the American Chiropractic Association, the odds of injury are roughly 0.00002%. Your chiropractor will take proper precautions using imaging and orthopedic tests to determine if chiropractic treatment is appropriate.
