What is a chiropractor?

Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) treat patients of all ages and with a wide range of health problems. They're notably well-known for using highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments to treat patients with back pain, neck discomfort, extremities, headaches, and many more ailments or conditions.

Are Chiropractors Safe?

Chiropractic care is generally considered safe. However, you are less likely to experience complications after chiropractic treatment. These complications may involve a brief increase in pain at the location of the adjustment. However, this risk is small compared to other medical methods, including prescription drugs and surgery.

Can I Get Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?

Yes. Pregnant women are advised to undergo chiropractic treatment throughout pregnancy to correct vertebral subluxation. A subluxation can worsen back pain, headaches, nausea, neck pain, and more during pregnancy. Our chiropractors provide effective, drug-free pain relief for all of these conditions.

Why Do Adjustments Sometimes Make A Popping Sound?

Most patients will hear a popping or cracking sound during spinal manipulation. This is not dangerous and usually causes no discomfort to the patient. This sound is caused by gas and fluid passing through the spine. Your body relies on fluid to lubricate the bones between the parts of your spine joints, so it's normal to have this fluid in your skeletal system.

Is Chiropractic Treatment Appropriate For Children?

Yes. Chiropractic is ideal for newborns, children, and teenagers because of its drug-free and preventive approach to optimum health. Chiropractic care for children of all ages is legal in all 50 states of the United States.

Can I Request Chiropractic Care Without A Referral?

We treat patients who do not have referrals from their primary care physicians or other medical providers. In fact, several patients come to see us before seeing another physician. Some insurance companies, however, still require patients to get prior approval.

How Do I Know If My Insurance Covers The Services?

We will check with your health insurance provider to see if services are covered by your policy. If you have any questions, we recommend that you check your insurance coverage, but please keep in mind that we provide a variety of payment options even if you do not have insurance.
