Your specific condition may require us to take x-rays to to get a full evaluation. X-rays help us rule out more serious conditions or assist us in developing the most effective treatment plan for you. Most people are amazed once they see their x-rays and can often immediately identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.
A postural foot scan will be performed as part of your exam. This test reveals important information about your weightbearing. Uneven or unbalanced stance puts greater pressure on the ankle, hips and the lower back. Many people find their feet to be the cause of their lower back pain.
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapies, and/or soft tissue therapies. Treatment is interactive so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
Prior to leaving, patients will be instructed on a wellness program to be conducted at home. If you are experiencing pain, this may include ice or heat application instructions, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire an overall wellness lifestyle, our wellness team will work with you to create good habits and routines that support your success. Every body is unique and different and therefore everyone requires a unique and customized wellness plan. The foundation of our overall wellness lifestyle is maintaining healthy posture and good spinal alignment, eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, keeping your weight under control and stress relief.
Patients return the following day for their report of findings to answer the three most popular questions: Can you help me? What do you recommend that I do to get better? How much is it going to cost?
After we discuss your history and goals, we will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, we will tell you. If we can help you, we will recommend treatment and a wellness program.

Our staff will verify and explain your benefits before treatment, at no charge.
No Insurance – For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, flexible payment programs can be arranged. If you have no insurance or do not have chiropractic benefits there is still a way for you to receive the care you need. Many patients pay directly for care, as they discover chiropractic to be extremely cost-effective and affordable.

So please, we would like to encourage you to take your health very seriously. As the old saying goes, if you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.
