Doctors of chiropractic diagnose, treat and help prevent conditions and disorders related to the back, neck, pelvis, extremity joints and the effect they have on the nervous system.
The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion. Sometimes chiropractors will also use other therapies like massage, heat, laser and ultrasound.
A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.
In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also counsel patients regarding nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
Direct Billing is Available to most Insurance Companies for Chiropractic Services, Massage Therapy, Custom Made Foot Orthotics, and Compression Stockings.
What to Expect
All chiropractic patients will experience an initial assessment before treatment.
You will be asked to share information about your health, such as any injury or surgery, medications you are taking and family health history.
The first visit will take longer than following visits, because a physical assessment will be conducted based on the reason for your visit. The assessment might include posture, range of motion, reflexes, and other orthopaedic and neurologic tests. You may also be sent for x-rays.
Following the physical assessment, we will talk with you about your diagnosis and treatment plan before you receive treatment/an adjustment. This might happen on the first visit, but most likely you will be asked to make a second appointment so that we can fully consider your needs and develop your treatment plan.
If you have any questions about anything during your treatment, always ask.
