Chiropractic FAQ’s

Considering chiropractic care? Have questions about what to expect? We’re here to help you better understand the process. Here are some of the questions we hear most when new patients consider giving our practice a try.

Once I go to a chiropractor, will I always have to go?

Chiropractic aims to reduce discomfort and enhance overall wellness, with the frequency of appointments varying based on the unique circumstances of each patient. Some individuals may require regular visits for maintenance purposes, while others may only need infrequent appointments.

Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

The aim of chiropractic care is to relieve pain and enhance overall well-being, and adjustments should not be painful. Some patients may experience a brief period of mild discomfort during the adjustment, however, this is usually fleeting and disappears promptly.

Can chiropractic cure everything?

Chiropractic care is not a universal remedy for all health concerns. It has demonstrated effectiveness in addressing a range of issues such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches, however, it may not be the answer for every medical condition. Chiropractors will tailor a specific treatment plan based on the patient’s individual situation and objectives to provide the most appropriate care.

Why would I have my newborn or young child adjusted?

Chiropractic care for newborns and young children removes nerve interference in the nervous system. By taking pressure off the system, this allows their health to function at a much higher level. This can have a positive impact on their overall health and well-being, as well as help prevent future health problems.

Can chiropractic help with colic and how?

Yes, chiropractic care may help with colic. Gentle chiropractic adjustments may remove nerve interference to restore normal function of the digestive tract and support digestion. This could alleviate symptoms of colic, such as abdominal pain, bloating, and crying.

Does insurance cover chiropractic visits?

Yes, some insurance policies cover chiropractic visits. It is important to check with your individual insurance provider to determine what types of services are covered.

How much does it cost?

The cost of chiropractic care can vary depending on the services provided and the individual case. It is important to speak with us to determine what types of services are necessary and what the cost will be.

Do I need a referral from my physician?

No, referrals are not required to visit our practice. However, some insurance plans may require a referral from a physician, so it is important to check with your insurance provider.

Do you work with medical doctors?

Yes, we often work with medical doctors to provide integrated care for patients. This can involve coordinating care, sharing information, and working together to provide the best possible care for the patient.

Will I get adjusted on my first visit?

Not usually. On the first visit, we will typically review the patient’s medical history, conduct a physical exam, and take any necessary x-rays. Based on this information, we will develop a care plan that is tailored to the patient’s individual needs and goals. The adjustment may be performed on the first visit or may be scheduled for a future visit.

Will you suggest exercises or other things I can do?

Yes, we often suggest exercises and other activities that can support the healing process and improve overall health. This may include stretching and strengthening exercises, as well as lifestyle modifications such as diet and stress management techniques.

Can someone who has had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Yes, individuals who have had back surgery can see a chiropractor. In fact, we welcome patients who have had surgery or who are considering surgery to give adjustments a try.
