1. Are chiropractors doctors?

Chiropractors go through the same hours of training and content that a medical doctor does. They must take national and state licensing board exams to become licensed. Annually, they complete continuing education classes that approved by the state they practice in. 

2. Are chiropractors safe?

Studies show that being treated by a chiropractor is safer than taking over the counter medications like aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen on a daily basis. Their malpractice insurance premiums are far less than what a medical doctor pays. Our office utilizes advanced treatment technologies that don’t have to crack, pop or twist your body and still get great if not better results than utilizing traditional manual adjustments.

3. Are there chiropractic adjustment side effects?

Occasionally, you may feel soreness after being treated. Other than that there are no side effects.

4. How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

That varies with each patient’s condition. The chiropractor typically recommends a rehabilitative treatment protocol that includes seeing the patient often in the beginning of care.

5. How much does a chiropractic care cost?

That can vary based on what the patient needs. The doctor will make that decision during your initial visit to our office. We are an in-network provider with most health insurance companies. We have flexible, no interest payment plans.
