Common Questions

1.) What does an initial consultation & exam entail?

A chiropractic consultation & exam can range anywhere from “where does it hurt” and a few pops of the spine with no explanation or diagnostic testing, to a truly in depth evaluation. Since your nervous system is the lifeline of your body and you live your life through your nervous system, it is essential that proper testing is done to find the cause of your problem and develop a plan to get you back to 100% health. In our chiropractic office we utilize the insight millenium, a cutting edge computerized nerve scan, to detect any damage to the nerves that control your organs. We also check posture, range of motion and palpate your spine to find areas of damage or subluxation. We may recommend digital x-rays, if necessary, to evaluate the structural alignment of your spine and to make sure we know how to properly adjust your spine to get you the best results.

2. How much does the evaluation cost?

Our exam gives us a chance to see if we can help you and we make it really easy and affordable by have you make a $20 donation to our Charity of the Month to cover you full exam and any testing including any necessary x-rays. Many offices charge much more for such an in depth evaluation but we view the evaluation as an opportunity see if we can truly help you, get to know you and see if you are a good fit for our office and our care. Every member of the community deserves to have a healthy, well functioning spine and nervous system and our goal is to make that affordable and accessible.
