What to expect when you come to the office.

Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it’s all about. This page is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our chiropractors can help you and your family.

Patient Information

Intake Forms
The first step is most important in us understanding your prior health history, current health concerns, and any health goals. It is best to complete this intake paperwork prior to your first visit. Please see our office for the necessary forms.

  • Full Consultation
    Once the intake paperwork is completed, our team will complete a detailed consultation to better understand your previous and current health status and help you set future goals.
  • Spinal Exam
    A full spinal examination will help us see where structural shifts and subluxations may have occurred.
  • Digital X-Rays
    If necessary, using our state-of-the-art, digital x-ray system, we are able to find any curves, degeneration or loss of disc space in your spine, which can’t be detected during the other evaluations.

Insurance Information

Due to its proven effectiveness and high patient satisfaction, chiropractic care is covered by most insurance plans. Sounds good doesn’t it? But there is a catch!

Most Health Insurance Plans Have Poor Chiropractic Coverage

Today’s higher deductibles and higher co-pays are often more expensive than the cost of routine maintenance or wellness visits. Health Insurance policies have limitations and only focus on the “acute injury” or “medical necessity” criteria of initial care and do not consider the importance of corrective and preventative stages of care for a patient or practice members plan of care.

Health Insurance Policies require additional, spinal evaluations, orthopedic, and neurological testing along with visit frequency protocol to be considered for insurance reimbursement requirement.

With the continued US health care crisis, and on top of the 2020 covid pandemic, there continues to be very low provider reimbursements to doctors of chiropractic. We do not participate with insurance plans with difficult pre-authorization requirements with pages and pages of patient paperwork. Our participation in certain insurance third party payers is based on provider availability of time. Our providers recommend a deep desire to see you get well and then stay well. We don’t allow financial concerns to keep you from the quality chiropractic wellness care you deserve.

The Good News

You’ve come to the right place. We offer affordable wellness care!

We’ve helped lots of people with problems just like yours.

Naturally, since you’re doing the healing, not us, you’ll recover at your own pace. We’re optimistic that we can help you. You should be too!

The chiropractic approach to better health is safe and natural. No drugs. No surgery.

Instead, we’ll locate and adjust areas of your spine that interfere with the workings of your nervous system. As your nervous system is able to control your body correctly, health can return.

True health is how well your body works, not how you feel.

With your spine more stable, we can usually reduce the frequency of your visits.

About the time your benefits are used up, fewer visits will be needed. That’s great, since you’ll be responsible for the remaining cost of your care.

The Bad News

You have a policy that may help pay for some of your chiropractic care.

Why is that bad news?

Because many people with plans such as yours think it will cover all the care they’ll need. It won’t, it’s likely to help with only the most superficial part of your problem.

It will be tempting to stop your care when you feel better.

This will predispose you to a relapse because supporting muscles and ligaments won’t be fully healed. That happens gradually, with continued care, after symptoms go away.

But your policy won’t cover the necessary care, what will you do? Your carrier designed your policy for catastrophic health problems.

The idea of paying for chiropractic care when you’re feeling better is a new idea to insurance companies. Maybe it is to you, too.
