Here are some of the questions we are most frequently asked:
Once you have booked your appointment by calling, texting, or our convenient 24/7 online booking method, you will receive an appointment confirmation email. Expect an automatic email appointment reminder 48 hours before your appointment and a text reminder 24 hours prior. One day before your first appointment you will receive an email from us (email@example.com) containing important appointment details.
Your first visit is about 60 minutes, with follow-up visits 30 minutes. Please, plan your schedule accordingly.
We will perform a thorough history taking, physical assessment examination. The gathering of information is crucial to your road to recovery because it helps us to methodically eliminate possibilities, peeling away the layers of the onion to reach the core of the problem. When we uncover the source of the problem(s), only then can we achieve a true solution.
We will discuss our findings with you and offer recommended treatment options so that you can be part of an informed decision. We hold patient education to a high standard. We strive to make the information presented to you digestible and understandable. We encourage questions.
If we decide we’re a good fit to work together, you can expect to receive your first treatment at this time. Please, wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement, such as gym clothes. An in-office dedicated changing room is available.
Treatment is 1-on-1 and hands-on with the Doctor the entire length of your visit, every visit.
We are always evaluating and reevaluating, modifying your treatments and the recommendations we make accordingly. You are unique and ever changing, so your treatment should never follow a strict, cookie-cutter protocol.
We will ask questions, recheck baseline tests, recommend strategies, offer advice, employ hands-on treatment, and coach rehabilitative & performance exercise. You will have to move around, answer questions, pay attention, follow instructions and provide feedback — mindfulness and awareness is a must. We are eliminating and narrowing possibilities to get a clear understanding of the primary issue and how to solve it.
Ultimately, a treatment plan is a team effort. We have to work together to achieve optimum results, propelling you to feeling and moving better, sooner, so you can get back to what you love doing most, better than ever.
Yes, we are in-network with most major health insurance providers. If we are not in-network with your plan, you can take advantage of any out-of-network benefits.
Affordability of high-quality treatment to get you better faster is of utmost importance to us. Due to high deductibles, poor coverage, and increasing out-of-pocket expenses, many opt out of using their health insurance altogether. For these situations, we offer an affordable, flat private-pay rate that includes all of our services, whereas billing insurance is a la carte. With our short-term care approach, our rate equates to the cost of a couple of venti mocha lattes per day. We believe the value far exceeds the cost, but we’ll let you decide!
We can accept payments from your HSA (health savings account) or FSA (flexible spending account).

Our treatment plans are about 5-7 visits over 4-6 weeks on average. Depending upon the injury/ailment and how long it has been going on for, it may be shorter or longer.
If it’s a recent problem you’re trying to take care of before it gets worse, we can expect to move along quickly; conversely, if you’ve dealt with something for years, we cannot expect it to go away in a matter of a few weeks.
Either way, if we’re not making progress, we’re not going to spin our wheels. Sometimes a re-evaluation with a change of treatment direction, or a referral to the appropriate medical professional is necessary. When situations like this arise, we will make our best recommendations so you can make the most informed decision for yourself.
The one-liner answer is classic: It depends.
The crack/click/pop that you hear, which associates with chiropractic like apple pie and America, during a chiropractic adjustment or manipulation, is simply gas leaving the joint. Think of the sound a suction cup makes when you pull it off a glass window. This sound does not confirm if the adjustment “worked” or not, it is just an associated occurrence.
The goal of an adjustment is to get joint articulations that are not moving well to move better. When a joint is not moving properly, it can cause other joints to have to move excessively to make up for the stuck joint, which can lead to pain and injury.
Though adjustments are a great tool, like a hammer or wrench, it’s another one of the proverbial “tools in the toolbelt”. We don’t always have to use the adjustment tool, and we’ve had many successes without it. Adjustments are painless and feel quite good afterward. It is possible to have residual soreness later in the day, but this is quite reasonable especially if you’ve never been adjusted. If you have any concerns or phobias, don’t fret, we have many other tools in our belts!
No, we do not have an x-ray machine in the office nor do we utilize it for diagnostic purposes. We are dynamic beings in motion (hopefully). We have a movement based approach to our practice, so looking at a static picture, such as an x-ray image, would not alter how we would address your problem.
If you suffered a traumatic accident such as a slip and fall, we find something during your history and examination where imaging (i.e., x-ray, CT scan, MRI) is warranted, or we’re not meeting expected progress, we will make the referral for imaging accordingly. In some cases, it’s important to get an imaging study to determine whether or not treatment is viable. Your Doctor of Chiropractic will be able to make this recommendation for you.
