Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Health?

Is the definition of health feeling good? Google defines it as: the state of being free from illness or injury.

Let’s take this a few steps further:

Health is the body’s ability to ADAPT to stresses and function properly on a moment to moment basis here on planet Earth.

As people learn more about their health and how their bodies work they begin to realize how different their concept of health is from what they had originally thought.  Health is much more than just feeling good, or being free from illness or injury.  There are people who have cancer who still feel good.  Heroin addicts feel good when they are high but are not healthy.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  This is one of the most profound statements ever made, and as Chiropractors focusing on NeuroStructural Correction we take this statement to heart.  Helping you achieve more, in terms of your health, is what we do.

We want you to adapt, perform, function, feel good and BE better than you thought you could.


What is chiropractic?

Chiropractors are often thought of as back Doctors because we work with your back.  We work with your back because it houses and protects your spinal cord and nerve roots (The beginning of your nerves).  Your spine is essentially like the breaker panel in your basement.  When a breaker trips in your panel, whatever is on the end of those wires receives no electricity and does not work until the breaker is flipped.  Your spine and body work very much the same way.  When a bone in your spine (vertebra) shifts out of its normal position, it starts to interfere with the nerves and whatever is on the end of that nerve does not work properly.  Chiropractic is all about helping you heal from these shifts and perform as well as you can.

When other conditions exist we compliment and support many medical therapies.


Do I have to keep coming?

 No you don’t.  No one has to come.  But……. a savvy health care consumer WILL, and here’s why: MOST people who come in are not here because of one injury. MOST are here because they have accumulated MANY years of injuries that have finally reached a breaking point.  Injuries are part of LIFE.  We can patch you up, but at some point, if you discontinue care, those same issues will cause the same problem with one exception- It is usually worse and takes longer to correct the second or third time around.

Rather than playing “the pain game”, or only coming in when you hurt, the savvy consumer will come in regularly for what we call PROTECTION CARE. Here’s a fun analogy:  Do you only take your (Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Birth Control, diabetes meds, etc) when you measure your BP, Cholesterol etc….Do you only take it when it is a problem?  Or….. do you take it EVERY DAY????


Should I get my child or infant adjusted?

Only if they need to be. We do not ASSUME that anyone needs to be adjusted. Adjustments to children are very safe and gentle. Appointments will include a criteria exam, discussion of concerns and a precise adjustment, only if necessary.


Is chiropractic covered by insurance?

We accept all insurances and are providers for many plans.  Please call and ask for our insurance specialist to confirm your coverage.


Car Accidents, Personal Injury and Workers Compensation

If you have been injured at work or in a car accident it is important to get your spine checked by a NeuroStructural Chiropractor.  Science has shown that injuries sustained during a car accident or fall may not show any secondary conditions/symptoms for 7 YEARS!  In 7 years time you will most likely have some form of permanent structural damage, AND be fully responsible for the lifetime of care that you will need (because the statute of limitations are up).

It doesn’t matter if: your car damage is minimal, the damage sustained by a car is in no way indicative of the damage/injuries sustained by the occupants. Nor does it matter that it was a minor slip.   A fall isn’t “just a fall”. Claims specialists know this and hope that you don’t.

Workers Compensation

Injuries can happen at work. Both you and your company need you to get back to work quickly.  With our care tailored specifically to meet your needs, we can help get you return to work as quickly as possible.
