Frequently Asked Questions


Do you take insurance?

We gladly accept any insurance that covers chiropractic, including Blue Cross, Blue Shield,  United Healthcare, Cigna, Aetna, and many others. 

Will the adjustment hurt?

Typically no. Most leave my office feeling much better than coming in. The adjustment may be less than comfortable, as I am poking around in sore areas, and if I'm doing muscle work, that can have that "hurt so good" feeling. I always check in with my patients and make sure to NEVER cross their pain threshold.

How much will it cost?

This is a case by case situation. Most copays vary between $0-$25 if you do have insurance. The typical chiropractic office visit is $60 per visit if you do not have insurance.  The initial visit takes more time due to the exam, so the overall cost is $120 (exam and adjustment). The number of visits prescribed is determined by the severity of each case, which we will know after the initial exam. A common care plan is 6 visits over three weeks, and then a re-evaluation. Some people need more, some less. I feel like we need to figure out what works best with eachindividual patient, and make it affordable.

Is chiropractic safe?

Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of health care. Many people have this concern, and an overall fear of being adjusted, because of the "pop" noise. I understand these concerns, and I've done a lot of research into the safety of the practices I utilize in my clinic. As with any intervention, there are inherent risks, but when compared with other forms of intervention, chiropractic has been found to be the safest and most cost effective form of care for low back and neck pain.

How long will each visit be?

Visit times vary from patient to patient. The initial visit typically takes 30 minutes- 1 hour, while follow up visits last anywhere between 10 minutes to 30 minutes.

Can I bring my kids?

Please do. We have a kid friendly office with toys and games. I love having kids in the office, and we make sure they love coming in.

Do I have to keep coming in over and over?

My goal is to get you well and give you the tools to keep yourself well. I offer a wellness program in my office if you want to stay on the top of your game with chiropractic, but that is something that we decide together.
