- How can physical therapy help me after an injury?
Physical therapy is important for restoring mobility to the body after an injury. For example, whiplash is one of the most common injuries affecting our patients. After a whiplash injury, it can be incredibly painful to turn the neck from side to side and look up or down. Physical therapy exercises will help bring mobility back to the cervical spine without aggravating the existing injury. These exercises strengthen the muscles, improve flexibility and correct improper movements that could aggravate the existing injury. Treatments also help to reduce inflammation and swelling, which speeds the recovery process and enhances pain relief.
- How does physical therapy complement chiropractic care?
Together, physical therapy and chiropractic care offer important health benefits to the body. Chiropractic care helps restore proper spinal alignment, releasing pressure on pinched nerves and removing nervous system interference. Poorly conditioned muscles can also pull the spine out of place and limit the body’s ability to move freely. Physical therapy programs include corrective exercises to bring strength, balance, coordination, flexibility and stability back to the body. Together, these treatments provide enhanced pain relief and support the body’s natural healing process.
- What should I expect during my first appointment?
From the first minute you walk in the office, the emphasis will be on you. We are dedicated to providing you and your family with the finest, compassionate, personalized care possible. We want to be your "friendly" doctor's office.
Your first visit will consist of a one on one consultation and health history with the doctor, followed by a thorough exam/analysis of your spine, nervous system, and health concerns. If there is a need for X-rays, it is done following the exam. Only the structures in question will need to be X-rayed.
Since we believe in educating all of our patients – no one is "left in the dark" at our office! Once all the exam findings are determined, you will know if you are a candidate for treatment in our office. We believe in honesty and integrity, and therefore, we will let you know if we can help you, or if we can not help you. If we feel we can help you – after the consultation and all exam findings are thoroughly reviewed with our TEAM of Medical, Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Physicians - we will report our findings to you. You will be explained exactly what is wrong, how we are going to fix things, and how long it is expected to fix it.
We encourage questions, thinking minds, and openness. Feel free to state any concerns you may have, and give us the chance to serve you and bring about a healthier change in your life!
- Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
YES. Its non-surgical, drug-free approach to health places chiropractic among the safest of all health care practices. Remember, chiropractic takes nothing out of the body and puts nothing in. As a result, chiropractors enjoy one of the lowest malpractice rates of all health care professionals.
- Do you accept insurance?
We accept all major medical insurances except Ahcccs. Before establishing any sort of treatment plan as a courtesy we will verify your insurance for you and go over all coverage options available to you. We also accept cash, credit card, care credit, HSA, and Flexible spending accounts.
- Is it OK to see a Chiropractor if I'm pregnant?
YES. Pregnant women frequently get amazing results from chiropractic. Chiropractors are trained in special techniques for adjusting pregnant women. Because of the inability to take medication for pain, the natural approaches of chiropractic are the logical choice for pregnant women. More and more, obstetricians are referring to chiropractors due to the effectiveness of spinal adjustments for pain relief. Also, techniques designed to naturally turn a Breech baby are safe and effective. Lastly, women under chiropractic care have a significantly faster delivery than those who are not.
- Do children need chiropractic care?
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked for vertebral subluxation. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child's spine. Many childhood health complaints can be traced back to nerve interference somewhere in the spine. Having the spine checked throughout childhood could prevent health problems that emerge in adulthood. Parents often prefer chiropractic care for their children because of its safe, non-invasive nature.
