FAQ – Chiropractic Care

If you’re new to chiropractic, you likely have questions about this form of natural health care. Here are some of the most common queries we get and our responses.


What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a form of natural healthcare that focuses on diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders. It uses manual manipulation and other adjunctive therapies to help you function better, reduce pain, and improve overall health.

Are Chiropractors Doctors?

Yes! Chiropractors are doctors who have completed specialized training in chiropractic care at an accredited institution. They must also pass national board exams before they can practice, and participate in continuing education courses throughout their careers.

How Often Do I Need Treatment?

The frequency of your treatments will depend on your condition and needs. Many patients find relief with one or two monthly appointments, while others may require more frequent visits during an acute period or flare-up of their symptoms. We will work with you to develop a personalized plan for your care that meets your specific needs.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Chiropractic care is very safe! We will use techniques tailored specifically for you and provide additional guidance regarding lifestyle habits such as exercise, nutrition, posture, and stress management that can help support your progress. Chiropractic care is also non-invasive and medication-free, making it a safe and effective way to manage musculoskeletal issues.

What Can I Expect During My Visit?

Each chiropractic assessment typically includes a physical examination, range of motion tests, postural assessments, and neurological tests. After diagnosis, we will create a personalized treatment plan that may consist of manual manipulation, stretching and strengthening exercises, electrical modalities, medical acupuncture, or other adjunctive treatments. If indicated, we may also use additional diagnostic tools like X-rays to understand your condition better.
What Do I Need To Do Before My First Visit?
Before your first visit, we will send you intake forms that will assist your practitioner in understanding your medical history prior to your arrival. This will include information about your symptoms, lifestyle habits, and general health. It can also be helpful to write down questions or concerns so that you are prepared for your appointment.

Will I Be Treated On My First Visit?

Yes, in the vast majority of cases we provide treatment on the first visit! The only exceptions would be if we felt it was unsafe to proceed without further investigation, such as X rays or other diagnostic imaging.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Care?

Many insurance plans provide coverage for chiropractic care, although this varies depending on the policy. Check with your carrier to find out what is covered.

Do You Offer Direct Billing To Insurance Companies?

Yes! We offer direct billing to all major insurance companies, provided that your policy allows direct billing. Please see this page for a full list of the insurance companies we can direct bill to.
