I Have Been Seeing a Chiropractor regularly and just moved to town. Do you require x-rays?
No, x-rays are not required. But images can be a most important link to understanding your condition. You may have images done else where and we can use those for evaluation provided they are recent.
Can I benefit 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 and Why is it needed?
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force applied either manually or by an instrument applied to a joint that is not moving properly. 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.

What Do you Charge?
We participate with many plans and adhere to fee reimbursements set by them. In these cases the patient makes a co-pay, and for any deductible. Our basic fee for adjustment is $48. A new 2022 law called the No Surprises Act requires that there be up an up front fair estimate of what services will cost and provide that if what is charged exceeds what is expected by more than $400, the patient has the right to protest that amount. This law applies to all providers licensed by a board, but was meant primarily for instances where a non participating provider may provide services in a setting where the patient was under the impression the insurance company would provide coverage. If there is no co-pay, we do require a $30 administrative fee to open a new file, make data entry, and provide support for electronic billing. This is not covered by insurance.
