Is getting adjusted safe?
Usually when we're asked this question, the patient is most concerned about a stroke or a fracture. Here's the good news: adjusting is very safe. Most research studies show that you are more likely to be struck by lightening than suffer a stroke after a chiropractic adjustment. And fractures? Unless you're osteoporotic, the risk is very small (and if you are osteoporotic, there are still safe adjusting options for you!). A chiropractic adjustment is meant to be fast, not forceful. With the amount of force we use in an adjustment, a fracture is highly unlikely.
Do you treat my complaint?
We treat a variety of complaints. We treat most neuromusculoskeletal complaints (like neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain, etc.). If you're wondering if we can treat your complaint, give us a call! If we can't treat your condition, we can often help you find another provider that can.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not, and here's why: we work for you, not the insurance company. When you bill insurance, you need different fees for every service you provide. For example, an adjustment needs to be billed separately than rehab exercises. We don't want to treat people because of the different reimbursement values for each service. We want to keep the fees for treatment simple and all-encompassing - and to do that we charge cash and one flat rate.
How long do I need to continue treatment?
This depends on a lot of factors. Your doctor will be able to give you a better idea of this after you have completed your initial exam. However, we are not the type of clinic to tell you to continue treatment forever after your initial complaint has been addressed. While there are different conditions that can benefit from ongoing care, we often leave the choice of continued "maintenance care" to the patient.
How much does it cost?
This depends on the type of service you're looking for: individual concierge visits, family visits, or corporate wellness. We don't nickel-and-dime our patients for every service we provide. We charge one fee that is all-inclusive for whatever services your particular case needs. Head over to our "Services and Prices" tab for more information.
What is included in my treatment?
It depends on what your doctor puts in your treatment plan. It could include any combination of adjusting, exercise prescription and rehab, nutritional recommendations, or neurologically-based rehab. But no matter what your treatment plan includes, it is always the same flat rate as described on our "Treatment and Pricing" page.
Do you take X-rays?
It depends on a few things. Was there a trauma? Are you having neurological symptoms down your arms or legs? How old are you? There are many factors that come into this decision. We also do not practice any techniques that require x-ray analysis.
I don't like hearing a "cracking" noise. Is there something that can be done?
Absolutely! In order to get adjusted, you actually don't need to hear a cracking noise, or "cavitation". That noise is just a byproduct of gas being exchanged between the two surfaces of a joint. It's nothing to be afraid of; however, if it still makes you nervous, there are plenty of other adjusting techniques that do not involve a cavitation. Just let us know that it bothers you and we'll be happy to adjust you a different way.

We practice Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson, Flexion-Distraction, and Activator I.
