Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a holistic healthcare discipline that focuses on the health of the spine and nervous system.
Is chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, drug free approach meaning that the risks associated with it are very low. Adverse events are very rare and your chiropractor will assess you individually for any risks before starting care.
What do Chiropractors do?
Chiropractors are trained to analyze the spine and detect any spinal misalignments, or what we call spinal subluxations. If spinal subluxations are detected, your chiropractor will use safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore proper spinal alignment.
I don’t have any pain. Do I still need to see a chiropractor?
Spinal dysfunction always occurs before neck or back pain. It can take up to 10 years before you may have any symptoms as a result of spinal subluxations.
Who is chiropractic care for?
Chiropractic care is for everyone! We see patients from newborns to the elderly and all ages can benefit from having a healthy nervous system free of interference.
Can I see a chiropractor while pregnant?
Absolutely, chiropractic care during pregnancy is very safe and gentle. Chiropractors can receive extra training for pregnancy and pediatrics through the ICPA, or International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. It is important when looking for a chiropractor during pregnancy or for children, to make sure you find someone who has this training. Chiropractors trained to help during pregnancy will assess your pelvic alignment. By restoring proper alignment to the pelvis, it restores nervous system function and can lead to less aches and pains, more comfort, and more optimal labor and delivery.
Why does my baby need to see a chiropractor?
The birthing process can be tough on both mom and baby! This stress and tension on baby’s spine can cause nerve interference. This nerve interference can lead to difficulty nursing, trouble turning head to one side, digestive issues, and even developmental delays.
Do you accept insurance or personal injury?
We currently do not participate with any PI (personal injury) cases, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other insurance providers. We believe that your care should be determined based on your individual needs. We do provide, upon request, a copy of services rendered to you that you may submit on your own to your insurance. This does not guarantee that you will be reimbursed by your insurance for any house call chiropractic services that you receive.
