- How do Physical Therapy and Chiropractic work together?
Poorly conditioned muscles often pull your body's structure out of place and limit your ability to move freely.
Chiropractic care restores proper spinal and joint alignment, also releasing pressure on pinched nerves.
Physical Therapy corrective exercise programs bring strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and stability back to your body.
Together these treatments provide enhanced pain relief and support the body’s natural healing process.
- What should I expect during my first appointment?
At your first appointment, you'll start with one of our medical assistants at the front desk who will ask you a few brief questions and have you fill out some new patient forms. Once you've completed those, we'll give you a quick tour and answer any initial questions you have.
The medical assistant will then take you to a private exam room to take your vitals and to meet with one our medical providers. The provider will ask you a few more detailed questions, answer your more specific questions, and do an initial physical exam with you. During this consult, we encourage you to ask any questions you might have. Once the exam is completed and your questions are answered, we'll take you to our on-site, digital x-ray machine for diagnostics if needed.
Expect your first visit to take 1 hour, however it may be slightly longer or shorter. The doctor will need some time to review your results from the exam, consult, and x-rays, so we'll invite you back for a 2nd visit to start a treatment plan as soon as the next day.
- Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Yes, chiropractic care is safe. It is non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free. Chiropractic care takes nothing out of the body and puts nothing into it. As it is one of the safest of all health care professions, chiropractors enjoy one of the lowest malpractice insurance rates.
Furthermore, there are multiple chiropractic methods such as the activator which some people enjoy more for an adjustment, and you may choose to not have certain areas adjusted at each treatment with your Doctor of Chiropractic. Read more about methods here.
- Do you accept insurance?
We accept all major medical insurances, except AHCCCS. We also accept cash, credit card, care credit, HSAs, and FSAs.
As a complimentary service, we will call your insurance company for you to verify coverage on your specific plan. We will then go over all of your coverage options before starting a treatment plan with you.
- Is it OK to see a Chiropractor if I'm pregnant?
Yes, both chiropractic care and massage therapy are very okay to receive through your entire pregnancy. Both Doctors of Chiropractic and our Licensed Massage Therapists are educated and trained specifically in techniques for pregnant women. Chiropractors also have techniques to naturally turn a breech baby safely and effectively. Some women have also reported faster deliveries when receiving chiropractic care prior to going into labor.
Because of the reduced ability for pregnant women to take medication for pain, chiropractic adjustments and prenatal massage are both excellent, natural approaches for relief during pregnancy. And they work exceptionally well when received together.
- Do babies, kids, and teens need chiropractic care?
Many chiropractic techniques have been adapted for newborns to young adults. Adjustments on the very young have been proven to be safe and gentle, often going unnoticed by your newborn or toddler. Many new parents report that chiropractic care on their babies can:
- Soothe colic
- Soothe ear and sinus infections
- Create better latching for breastfeeding
- Improve sleep to be better and longer
As your children get older, they may also become more active, increasing their exposure to sports and an active lifestyle. Young athletes visit BackFit often as a part of their sporting activities. But even if your kids and teens aren't athletes, regular adjustments can improve posture, increase mobility, reduce pain, and assist in growth.
Having the spine and joints of your kids adjusted throughout childhood can also prevent health problems that might emerge later in adulthood. Many parents prefer chiropractic care for their children because of its safe, non-invasive nature.
