FREQUENTLY ASKED

Why Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the preferred method of natural healing for those seeking alternative or complementary health care for acute and chronic conditions. While people first visit a chiropractor to relieve pain in specific areas (most commonly the back), they quickly discover that the chiropractor approaches their health from a holistic perspective rather than just focusing on the specific area of pain or injury. A chiropractor will partner with you to ensure your optimal health.

 

What can I expect from my first series of visits?

The first visit includes an in-depth history, tests, and consultation to discover if you are a candidate for chiropractic care and if what we do will help you best. The test includes neurological evaluation, stress test, and an orthopedic evaluation pertinent, stress or trauma or a combination of the three are causing your current health concerns. If we discover that further testing is required during the consultation and tests, such as X-ray, we will refer you to the appropriate facility. Future Visits will continue to detect and correct health concerns that continue to arise and help your body establish normal function.

 

Why Quantum Spinal Mechanics 3 or QSM3 Upper Cervical Care?

This specialized form of chiropractic uses the body’s objective to measure each visit to obtain up to date information on how and what to adjust on any particular visit. QSM3 measures 8 distinctive biomechanical (structural and neurological) movements during each visit. Using that information, the Chiropractor will use a precise adjustment to restore and open up the nervous system and body to integrate with its surroundings fully. If you have never experienced chiropractic, do not want to be twisted/popped/crack in the neck, then QSM3 is an awesome option for you!

 

What is the process?

Chiropractors know that your health is affected by many things, including nutrition, sleep, exercise, and heredity. By naturally maintaining your health, chiropractic will help your body resist disease rather than just masking disease symptoms.

You will be evaluated using many time-honored methods such as a physical examination, case history, consultation, and imaging when necessary. Additionally, you will receive a structural and postural examination with a focus on global well-being.

When subluxations (misaligned vertebra) are found, a chiropractor will never resort to drugs or surgical techniques. Instead, they will perform a precise, objective adjustment, without the rotation/pop/crack/twist, to encourage your body’s nervous system to manage the body’s functions more effectively, especially those related to healing damaged areas.

 

Do you partner with other healthcare professionals?

A chiropractor works well in conjunction with other healthcare professionals. If you require other healthcare providers’ assistance, your chiropractor will be happy to make the referral.

 

Do you only adjust the neck?

We start at the neck. The upper cervical complex is the cell phone tower for your body. If a cell tower gets knocked down, disrupted, or malfunctions in anyway, cell service in that area is spotty or non-existent. Now imagine your own personal cell tower that controls ALL functions of your body. Detecting and correcting issues with the upper cervical complex is vital to the health of ALL functions in your body. Each case is determined visit by visit.

 

Is chiropractic beneficial for children?

The average child takes more falls, spills, hits, bumps, and bruises than the average adult. Do you think those are traumas? You bet!! Chiropractic is not only safe for kids, but you become a genius parent or guardian when your child becomes an adult and already sees the benefits of chiropractic care.

 

Once I get adjusted, do I always have to get adjusted?

In a perfect world, we would adjust you one time, and your entire body would work 100%, 100% of the time. But in reality, we all know that toxins, stress, and traumas occur throughout our lives. If those were the original issues that brought you to us in the first place, it is reasonable to say that you might experience toxins, stress, or trauma again. We recommend getting checked regularly throughout the year for the benefit of your health, and once your adjustment has been held and stabilized, we call this proactive care.

 

I heard the Adjustment was Painful. Is this true?

The adjustment, when necessary, is extremely quickly and over before you know.

 

Do you take insurance?
