Many individuals and families that do not have health insurance come to us for care. We offer rates and plans to make care affordable for you and your family. We believe that health insurance, or the lack of, should not be an obstacle to you receiving the best care.
We put your health as our #1 priority and will do a complete and thorough exam to determine if you are a chiropractic candidate to determine how your current state of health will play into our expected outcomes.
Absolutely! We are a referral-based family practice. We love to see whole families living up to their full potential. Even if they aren’t under care yet, we would love for you to bring them with you for your appointments.
We are excited that you’ve been to a chiropractor before and have found us! In a number of ways we are different, but we believe actions speak louder than words. We’d love to have you come into the office for us to show you and for you to experience it for yourself. You can also find out more information on what to expect and our technique.
Not everyone in our office requires x-rays, but the doctor will determine if you need them once she has completed her exam. We even have a state-of-the-art digital x-ray suite on-site for your convenience!
We are happy to view your x-rays from your previous doctor. A number of factors will determine if we can use these images or if we will need to take new ones in our office.
Just as each spine is different, each case is different. Once the doctor has reviewed your health history, exam findings, and other factors, she will provide you with a care plan to get you back on track. The number of visits, frequency, and duration will vary based on each individual’s case.
Then you are in the right place! Our technique is extremely gentle, yet specific and effective. Patients often report almost falling asleep on the table— that’s how relaxed they are! We love and appreciate all chiropractic techniques, but ultimately believe that not every technique is right for every person. Our techniques allow us to serve practice members of all ages, from minutes old to over 100. For more information, visit our technique page.
The simple answer is, YES. While we receive a different education and have a different view on health than a traditional medical doctor, we are still put through a rigorous curriculum, consisting of 4,700 hours of instruction, clinicals, and practicals. Chiropractors receive a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree upon graduation. We are required to take national board exams, state licensure exams, carry malpractice insurance, and maintain continuing education hours, just as medical doctors do. Chiropractors are the only medical professionals that are licensed to detect, analyze, and correct a subluxation!

We have an amazing network of medical professionals in this community and in our surrounding areas. We understand your frustration and appreciate that you’ve made it to us! Traditional medicine works from the outside in and focuses on symptomatology (symptoms). We are the opposite, in that we believe the body has the ability to heal itself from within: above-down, inside-out. Your body was designed to heal, and it’s our goal to make sure that you’re able to use this wondrous ability! So if you’ve tried it all, come try our chiropractic care!
Still have questions? We are happy to answer them! Please give us a call, email us, or ask us at your next visit. We look forward to serving you and your family!
