Frequently Asked Questions

How can chiropractic care help me deal with pain?

Most people seek chiropractic care to treat acute or chronic pain, most commonly in the lower back or neck and shoulders. While lessening their pain and giving them some form of comfort is important the Chiropractor seeks to find the cause of the pain or discomfort and work to correct that condition.

Whether caused by an acute trauma such as a fall or accident or by chronic issues such as bad posture, repetitive activities or degenerative conditions, a Chiropractor will find the misalignment and correct it, allowing the body to heal naturally. Untreated, those misalignments can lead to excess strain and wear on the body, resulting in pain.

Chiropractic care has been shown to cost less than one third of other means of treating back problems, and without surgery of prescription medicines. What you will pay as a patient will depend on what type of insurance you have if any and how they reimburse for chiropractic care. Most coverage today requires you to pay a copay for each visit to the doctor. A Chiropractor will explain the treatment plan he recommends as well as an estimate of cost to you after the initial visit.
