The Four Big Questions
- What's Wrong?
- Can you help me?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
Very simply put you have pressure on the discs and nerves causing stress within and around the joint. This stress will cause muscle spasms, pain and swelling that grows over time. Eventually the stress on the joints will cause spinal arthritis and disc bulging.
Can you help me?
Yes, 80-90% of our patient's experience a full recovery, some patient's will get better but not all the way (residual numbness/stiffness) and some don't respond to care. The odds are in your favor for a complete recovery.
How long will it take?
Fast responders will see a significant change in the first 1-8 visits, intermediate responders will see a change from 8-16 and slow responders might not see significant improvement for 16-24 treatments. It doesn't matter if your fast, intermediate or slow as long as we see consistent improvement we will continue treatment.
How much will it cost?
That will depend on your insurance plan, deductible and copays. We will go over this at your second visit after we get your benefits. For our cash or time of service patients our the initial visit will be $125 which includes an exam, x-rays and full spine adjustment. Follow up visits can range from $40-50 depending on your care plan and any applicable discounts (doctor, nurse, fireman, police, military).
Can you be adjusted after spinal surgery, fusions or Herrington Rods?
The short answer is yes!
The screws, plates and rods used in surgery are very strong and will not break or pull out with an adjustment. We've helped hundreds of patients with post surgical pain and dysfunction with no adverse events or reactions. Here's an x-ray of our patients who had surgery after an automobile accident. He continued to have pain radiate into his shoulder after the surgery, in only a few visits he's starting to see improvement.
Can you be adjusted if you have a disc bulge or herniation?
Yes, disc bulges and herniations respond very well to chiropractic adjustment. The reason disc
can bulge or herniate is due to lack of motion within the joint. When the joint can't move properly the disc become weak
and start to bulge out due to compressive forces. Chiropractic adjustments restore the normal motion to the joint which allows the disc to heal and become stronger.
