How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

The term chiropractor derives from the Greek cheir (by hand) and praxis (action), which means “done by hand.” The action of chiropractic care applies manual therapy to the spine and joints to improve function and reduce inflammation that causes pain.

I Didn't Hear A Sound. Does That Mean The Adjustment Didn't Work?

Not at all. The popping or cracking sounds that can sometimes be heard during an adjustment aren’t actually bones making that sound. Between the joints, small has bubbles exist and when high velocity adjustments are performed, these bubbles are put under immense pressure, causing them to pop. It’s this sound that can be heard during an adjustment. If you crack your fingers, notice you can only do this once, it can take several minutes for the bubbles to reform allowing you to crack again.

For patients who still feel uneasy about the popping sounds, we have other solutions to help with the adjustment that don’t require that popping.

Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Visits?

Insurance certainly does cover chiropractic visits. It is always best to call ahead with your insurance details so that we can verify your coverage.
