Because true healing is an inside job. Your body is capable of self regulation and healing, innately. This is why chiropractic can be so beneficial. Getting adjusted regularly can improve joint mobility, function and health. It can help with contractibility (thereby strength) of the muscle. Long term, chiropractic can decrease degeneration of the joint and connective tissues (arthritis). As well as decrease the ongoing inflammatory process associated with the subluxation. Chiropractic care will improve circulation and speed up the recovery process.
Frequently Asked Questions
It’s natural to have lots of questions about chiropractic and our approach to health – especially if you haven’t been under principled chiropractic care in the past. So, we’ve compiled some “Frequently Asked Questions” you might find helpful.
Yes, we do an insurance benefits check when you come in for your consultation, so you’ll know exactly what your insurance covers before you incur any charges. Many patients find that our self-pay options are even more affordable than their insurance co-pay because of the federal discount program we are part of.
Yes, please bring any scans that you have with you for our review. If you don’t have current x-rays, we have the ability to perform these on-site, so there is no need to go to another doctor’s office or schedule a separate appointment.
Every person and case is different. That’s why we do a full assessment to ensure we are pinpointing the type of care (if any) you will need. But we do offer you a consultation and report of findings so the doctor can determine and review the specifics of your case. You will be notified of ANY costs BEFORE you incur any charges.
Yes – additional information/documentation will be needed. We have the necessary documents for those cases.
No, you do not need a referral from a medical doctor.
As a principled chiropractic office, we detect and correct subluxations. Subluxations are when a bone moves out of alignment putting pressure on a nerve causing an ache, pain or dysfunction. Aches and pains include neck pain, migraines, back pain, upper back pain, numbness/tingling. Dysfunctions could include things like sinuses issues, allergies, ear infections, vertigo, high blood pressure, asthma, digestive issues, irregular menstrual cycles, prostate issues, and infertility. See our Research Center page for more in-depth information.
Every case is different, it is difficult to be sure how many visits you will need before the doctor has had a chance to evaluate your case and determine what care you will need. This will be calculated when you have your first initial visit, where we evaluate your case. Again, once the doctor has determined your plan of care, you will be notified of ANY costs BEFORE you incur any charges.
We get asked this question A LOT! Often times from pregnant women, or first time expecting dads, and have also been asked by a number of OBGYNs! The answer is YES, chiropractic is safe, and can alleviate a lot of symptoms brought on by the changes that occur in the body during pregnancy. Check out our pregnancy tab on for more additional information.
Chiropractic is a safe, gentle, and completely natural approach that not only improves the health of children, but improves their overall function through growth and development. No twisting, cracking, or popping will be involved with your child’s adjustment! Chiropractic Essence uses a technique used on both infants and children that is soft, gentle, and effective. Visit our detailed information page on Torque Release Technique.
The birthing process takes a toll, not just on mom, but on baby. There is a large amount of stress and tension put on a newborn’s spine, musculature and nerves from the twisting and pulling used to deliver a baby. 60-90 pounds of pressure can be put on your baby’s neck when they are delivered. These delivery methods can create micro-traumas of the spinal structure and nervous-system. Chiropractic shortly after birth has demonstrable positive effects in infants experiencing difficulties such as; trouble breast-feeding or latching, colic, reflux, chronic ear infections, allergies, asthma, ADD, chronic bed wetting, digestive issues, and constipation. At Chiropractic Essence, we use very soft and gentle pressures (the amount to see if a tomato is ripe) to relieve irritation on the nervous-system, so your baby can be as healthy and happy as they are created to be.
