Frequently Asked Questions

Do you "take" insurance?

Can chiropractic help me with...? 

A rising tide raises all boats. 

Chiropractic is different. Rather than trying to "treat" a body part that is crying for help, we leave the healing to Mother Nature. That awesome power may not be able to reach the ailing part because of vertebral subluxation. By addressing the cause of dis-ease, the chiropractor helps prepare the soil. Nature regrows the garden. 

3.

Is chiropractic safe for my child? 

Not only is it safe, it is necessary for your child to grow properly. The birth process presents massive stresses to the upper cervical spine in the vast majority of newborns. The resultant neuroskeletal trauma, vertebral subluxation, has been linked to nearly every childhood disorder except for childhood diseases as they are part of nature's plan to develop their immune system. Early correction of subluxations allows nature to develop the brain and body without interference. Most health concerns in adults have their roots in childhood subluxations. Chiropractors receive extensive training in methods of analyzing and adjusting children. Chiropractic care is safe for children. One should ask if it is safe for children not to have chiropractic care.

Is there such thing as too much chiropractic care? 

No. Chiropractors have particular criteria to determine when someone requieres a chiropractic adjustment.

Chiropractic has been a recognized profession for over 100 years. To become a doctor of chiropractic, a bachelor degree, a four-year postgraduate degree, and a national or state board exam are required to be a licensed chiropractor. Doctors of chiropractic study out of the same books as medical professionals, but their approach to health is different.
