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?

Your Co-pay or $35

Your initial consultation, evaluation, x-rays (if necessary) and first adjustment are all covered by your normal insurance co-pay. If you do not have insurance your first visit is $35 and that covers everything.

3.) Does the doctor give you a detailed report of findings?

A detailed report of finding is a crucial part of the care you receive in our office. This is your chance to learn about the advanced corrective care we provide and see how many people in our community have seen amazing results with our care. We want you fully realize how your body has an innate potential to heal and how chiropractic care helps you heal yourself from the inside out.

4.) Does the doctor explain the type of care options they give up front before you have a large financial commitment?

We explain in detail corrective care and relief care options that our office has so you can choose the best approach to getting your desired results. Finances and insurance coverage are reviewed in detail before you assume any financial expense beyond the $20 donation to charity. This way you can decide without pressure what path to wellness you want to take and options are given to make care affordable for the whole family.
