I Have Been Seeing a Chiropractor regularly and just moved to town. Do you require x-rays and will you make me come 20 or 30 times?
No, x-rays are not required. We talk to patients who have had successful chiropractic treatment and learn what helped them in the past, and then supply that to them in their new community. We have had years of experience and while we don't know all techniques we know a lot, and if we don't we most likely know of someone we trust who does and will make sure we recommend them for you. X-rays may be indicated. A treatment plan may be indicated. We have had many patients over the years who transitioned from home town friendly docs to us.
Who Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic treatment is suitable for almost everyone. There is no pressure to get treatment or sign up for an extensive (expensive) treatment plan. If accepted, once you are better, as are 96% of those accepted as patients, continuing treatment is on an as needed basis based upon your needs.
Why might I need Chiropractic Care?
Spinal impairments occur by the following: improper lifting, sleep habits, desk/computer positioning, and automobile accidents, work-related accidents, slips/falls, stress, muscle tension, etc. Your genetic bone structure can also make you more susceptible to spinal impairments.
What Is An Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is not moving properly. This may be applied by hand or an instrument.
Why Is An Adjustment Needed?
Joints that are not moving properly can cause compression on spinal nerves causing symptoms to appear throughout the body. Adjustments help restore proper function to the joints that are not performing normally. Joints that do not move enough force other joints to move too much. An adjustment adds motion to a joint, helping the bones to gradually return to a more normal motion.
How Long Will My Treatment Last
You are the captain of your own ship. We can make recommendations, but you are the ultimate decider of when and what treatment you receive.

Can Chiropractic Care Help Neck Pain Or Headaches?
Yes, Chiropractic treatment is effective in treating headaches or neck pain caused by stress, tension, repetitive strain, spinal misalignments or a loss of normal spinal curvature in the neck. These conditions can be caused from sudden trauma or improper posture. After an examination and history, it can be determined if Chiropractic care would be beneficial for you. Many patients note a relief from pain and less dependency on pain medication with Chiropractic treatment.
Do you do laser?
Yes, we have a variety of Low Level Cold Lasers.
Do all chiropractors call themselves chiropractors?
They are supposed to. It is fashionable to not use the term chiropractor, but it is misleading and against state law, as is claiming that one provider is superior over another, or a guarantee of results.
