No. The techniques we use at Precision Chiropractic never require you to be placed in an uncomfortable position and we will never take you by surprise with a forceful adjustment. Our methods are often described as precise, gentle, and focused.
Don’t worry, we won’t ignore the rest of your spine. If your atlas correction is holding, we have a systematic analysis to determine where and when other adjustments are needed.
Though this is a common belief, our goal is to help you to feel (and function) better and help you stay that way with the least number of visits as is reasonable. Everybody is different, and factors such as age, injury, work demands, and overall health play a role in how long you can hold your spinal correction. For our patients who wish to protect the gains they made with us, we recommend a monthly checkup. Why? Because your body is dynamic, and much like exercising or eating healthfully, as long as you’re consistent you will continue to enjoy the benefits. However, we never require that and the choice is always yours to make.
We have served people of all ages and with many health conditions ranging from simple to complex that develop secondary to the Atlas Displacement Complex and other related Structural Shifts of the spine.
Our office is a direct-pay practice because we want our relationship to be with YOU, not with your insurance company. Many of our patients have chiropractic coverage which we will do our best to verify when you’re in for your Complimentary Consultation. We will provide you with all of the documentation needed to submit to your insurance company so you can be reimbursed directly if eligible.
We use the most up-to-date high-frequency digital x-ray equipment available to minimize patient exposure and obtain high-quality images. Our ability to visualize Structural Shifts, particularly the Atlas Displacement Complex, is paramount in our process of customizing care for our patients. No two patients receive the same correction in our office – nor should they – making imaging a vital part of our examination procedure. There are always exceptions – i.e. pregnancy – that would require a change in approach for obvious reasons. You’re encouraged to discuss your specific concerns with the Doctor during your new patient consultation.
All of our new patients begin their relationship with our practice in a Complimentary Consultation. Based on the complexity of your health history, you should set aside a minimum of 45 minutes for this conversation so we can get to know you and explain our approach to care. We always set aside time immediately following your consultation to proceed directly into a comprehensive NeuroStructural Chiropractic Exam should you choose to take that next step. The exam, which is always performed by the Doctor, takes between 30 and 45 minutes. On your following visit, your results will be reviewed, recommendations for care will be made, and your first Atlas Correction will be delivered. After an Atlas Correction, 15-20 minutes of rest in our Stabilization Room is required, so we ask you plan to be in the office for about 60-75 minutes for your Recommendation visit.
Once you’re through the intake process, which consists of a Complimentary Consultation, NeuroStructural Chiropractic Exam, and a Recommendation Conference, coming in to get checked is a breeze. Depending on your needs on any particular day, you may be in our office anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes for a standard visit. Even when not required on a particular visit, you’re always welcome to rest in our Stabilization Room after your adjustment.
In most cases, the answer to this question is no. We hate seeing people suffering as much as you hate experiencing pain, but we’d be remiss to rush into adjusting your spine without first collecting all of the pertinent information. Our care is highly individualized, which allows us to accomplish the great results that our patients benefit from. However, this process requires us to eliminate the guesswork that comes with skipping steps or blindly adjusting without first establishing a baseline.
Yes! We love taking care of people through their pregnancy and recognize the changing needs of a pregnant woman’s body. Our Doctors are Webster Certified through the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association and we are equipped with the tools needed to make your experience comfortable, gentle, and safe. After the baby is born, most moms choose to make the transition from pre-natal care into NeuroStructural care.
No, this is better left in the hands of a trained medical doctor.
