Chiropractic FAQs

  • What happens on my first visit?

    On your first visit with us, the doctor will perform an exam to determine the best treatment plan. X-rays will be performed that day if the doctor believes that they are necessary. You will then receive an adjustment and any therapy the doctor orders.

  • What will my first visit cost?

    We are in network with all major insurance companies (excluding Medicaid/Cigna Healthspring) and will file each visit on your behalf. Patient responsibility for the visit varies from policy to policy, and one of the staff will verify your benefits on the date of service.

    The Time of Service discount price (no insurance) for a first visit is between $95-160 depending on x-rays and therapies received.

  • What is sciatica?

    Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg.

    Sciatica most often occurs when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and often some numbness in the affected leg.

  • What is a herniated disc?

    A herniated disk refers to a problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) that sit between the bones (vertebrae) that stack to make your spine.

    A spinal disk has a soft, jellylike center (nucleus) encased in a tougher, rubbery exterior (annulus). Sometimes called a slipped disk or a ruptured disk, a herniated disk occurs when some of the nucleus pushes out through a tear in the annulus.

     

    A herniated disk, which can occur in any part of the spine, most often occurs in the lower back. Depending on where the herniated disk is, it can result in pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg.

  • What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

    Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. When the median nerve is compressed, symptoms can include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm.

  • What is Thoracic Outlet Syndrome?

    Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is any of several syndromes in which blood vessels or nerves are compressed, usually by an overlying muscle, as they pass from the neck region to the arm, causing pain, numbness, and weakness of the arm and hand

  • What is Plantar Fasciitis?

    Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes (plantar fascia).

    Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

  • What is Bursitis?

    Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae — that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed.

    The most common locations for bursitis are in the shoulder, elbow, and hip. But you can also have bursitis by your knee, heel and the base of your big toe. Bursitis often occurs near joints that perform frequent repetitive motion.
