Chiropractic Questions and Answers...

Will I have to have X-rays?
X-rays and other types of images can be helpful. Pictures of your spine, especially after trauma, can confirm our other findings and make your care more precise. We can tell if we need them after completing our other examinations.

How Long until I feel better?
Every patient recovers at their own pace. Factors which can affect the healing process include your age, your overall health condition, muscle tone, diet and even your attitude. Other factors include physical, chemical and mental stresses you have now and have had in the past.

Do I have to go forever?
After your initial examination, a program of care is established. Based on your spinal problems we will put you on a program to stabilize your spine. This is similar to putting braces on crooked teeth. After this time, most patients choose to maintain a check-up program to keep their spine healthy, free from pain and to prevent a relapse. Most patients think of this as wellness or preventive care similar to dental check-ups. Of course, how much care you chose to receive is always up to you.

Isn't Chiropractic Care expensive?
Actually chiropractic care is much more affordable and effective than many other types of care. Physical therapy is at least twice as expensive per visit, and spinal surgery can be over $50,000.

What if my insurance won't pay for Chiropractic Care?
Insurance companies make two mistakes by limiting or denying coverage. First, they ignore current research showing the superiority of chiropractic care in many cases. Plus, they overlook the lower cost and higher patient satisfaction enjoyed with chiropractic care. We offer ways to make care affordable for just about anyone.
