Q: What is chiropractic?
A: Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy which utilizes specific adjusments, mainly to the spine, to maximize health. Because the brain is connected to the body through the spinal cord, misalignments and fixations in the joints of the spine have adverse affects on the nerves. These nerves control the function of everything in your body. Therefore, restoring proper alignment and motion to the spine leads to the restoration of proper function of the body.
Q: What if my insurance doesn’t cover chiropractic, is inadequate, or I don’t have insurance?
A: Many patients today have no insurance, have insurance that does not cover chiropractic care, or have insurance which is inadequate or has such a high deductible that it will not be in our time with you. This can be a major cause of stress when dealing with a difficult health condition. Because of this we strive to provide affordable care to those patients paying cash. We have convenient payment plans available for those who may need them. Your specific circumstances will be discussed with you during your report of findings, at which time the options will be explained.
Q: Do I have to have x-rays?
A: The need for x-rays is demonstrated by the clinical findings on the health history and physical examination. If certain indicators are found, x-rays will be necessary. If these indicators are not found, x-rays will not be needed. Before x-rays are taken, the need will be explained to you. We will never leave you in the dark!
