Chiropractic Care Question’s and Answers

 

At Mountain View Pain Center we get asked a lot of questions about Chiropractic care and today we are going to answer some of them.

Can a Chiropractor help me?

Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal issues ranging from low back pain, neck pain, ankle pain, wrist pain, and many other ailments affecting any of the joints in the body or related to the spine. To put it as simply as possible Chiropractors deal with muscles, nerves, and bones.  This means that Chiropractors have a vast knowledge of the whole body and can help you with your pain, posture, range of motion, or overall function of the body.

What is the spinal manipulation/adjustment and why would I need one?

Chiropractors use spinal manipulations to remove fixations in the spine and to free the nerve that could be impinged by the bone.  This impingement can cause a number of problems such as pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, and radiating pain.  This means that when you’re having ankle pain for example the Chiropractor will look at your ankle, knee and low back to make sure there is no fixations in any of the joints.

Is Chiropractic safe and is it going to hurt?

This is one the most popular questions we get asked. Yes, Chiropractic is safe there have been a number of research papers done on Chiropractic, its effectiveness and safety of receiving chiropractic treatment.  One of the most recent research article done was in the Spine Journal which stated that Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a safe and effective way to receive alternative treatment for musculoskeletal conditions. Spinal manipulations if perform by a licensed professional do not hurt they actually feel great!!!!

I heard that once you go to a Chiropractor you always have to go why?

This is not true.  Chiropractors want to help you get out and stay out of pain.  In the beginning of your treatment you may come in more often so your body can begin to heal faster. Once the initial pain levels have gone down your frequency of visits will decrease as you continue to progress through treatment. The next step is to start a course of physical therapy to help correct any muscular imbalances attributing to your condition, with either increase muscle strength or breaking a spasm.  The Chiropractor may recommend wellness care for you because the daily stresses in our lives, such as our jobs can lead to further discomfort from poor posture or repetitive activities.

What’s the cost of coming in?

This is the second most common question asked.  Cost can vary from person to person and may also vary from insurance company to insurance company. You may have no deductible or co-pay in some cases, or you may have no coverage at all. The best way to know how much your treatment is going to cost is to call our front desk and have them call in your insurance. If you have no insurance you could take advantage of our new patient special. Currently we are offering a new patient exam, consultation and 1 hour massage for only $49.00.

Testimonials

  • One of the best chiropractors I have ever been to. I came in with back pain that traveled down the back of my leg and was having a really hard time walking, sitting, and standing. They spent extra time with me to make sure I understood why I was having pain. There front desk people are really helpful and Brandi and Jen there massage therapist are the best. Most importantly they took my insurance. My husband now goes to them and also agrees with me. I would highly recommend them if you are in pain.
