How do I know what my insurance covers for Chiropractic care?
Every individual’s plan is different in terms of coverage; therefore every patient needs to know exactly what is covered for their Chiropractic treatment. Some plans have payments towards your deductible, some have copayments while others have coinsurances. We can assist you in figuring out what your plan covers but it is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to know what their plan pays and what their plan does not.
Does my insurance cover Massage Therapy? What kind of massages do you recommend for my treatment?
Depending on what kind of healthcare plan an individual is covered under, we can offer massage therapy from our Licensed Therapist who is also in our office. Our therapist will discuss with you what areas you may be having problems with and what massage you can benefit from the most. Styles include: deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, hot stone massage and prenatal massage. Often times, our patient’s do a combination of both chiropractic care and massage therapy to more effectively treat their condition.

Can I bring my children for chiropractic treatment or are they too young?
Of course you can. Certain school sports or activities that our children participate in could potentially cause tension in certain muscles as well as painful movements. Our doctor can help distinguish if they are having problems due to these activities, a potential trauma, or if it could be a problem that they have had since birth. In any case, identifying any problem as early as possible is key to successful rehabilitation.
