Frequently Asked Questions
Is chiropractic safe?
The American Chiropractic Association reports "chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects." Our doctors perform a full orthopedic exam on all patients prior to adjusting to determine any contraindications.

What should I bring to my first appointment?
At your first visit, the doctor will do an orthopedic exam and medical history review. It is important that you complete the appropriate new patient paperwork prior to your appointment. If you've had any recent x-rays or imaging done, please bring them with you, along with a complete medication and supplement list. Please also bring your insurance card and form of ID.
How often should I get adjusted?
Treatment frequency is something to be determined between you and your doctor, to ensure appropriate execution of your treatment plan for best results.
Some patients not experiencing acute pain opt to receive routine maintenance care every 4-6 weeks to ensure continued health and wellness.
What adjusting techniques are used in your office?
Our doctors specialize in many techniques including drop table, manual adjusting, instrument adjusting, low force, and more! Our doctors use whatever technique is best for the patient, and will never use a technique that you are not comfortable with.
Is chiropractic care appropriate for children?
Chiropractic care is safe and beneficial for people of all ages - including infants, children, and teenagers. Chiropractic care in children may improve sleep, behavior, nervous system function, brain development, and immune support!
Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted?
The American Chiropractic Association reports: "Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released."
Does insurance cover chiropractic care?
The short answer - sometimes! Most insurance plans do have chiropractic benefits of some kind, and will be outlined in your benefit documents from your insurance carrier. If you are unsure of your benefits, check out our insurance information page and call us for a free benefits check!
