Frequently Asked Questions

What does the new patient process look like?

During your new patient visit, we will start by having you fill out an intake form so we can get to know you and the type of care you're looking for.

We will take some time to talk about your condition, how it's affecting your life, and how our technique of chiropractic care can help.

A full spinal exam and in depth posture screen will be done to see how your upper cervical misalignment is affecting the rest of your spine. We will conduct neurological tests and scans to determine if there's interference in your nervous system and then take a 3D image of your upper cervical spine so we can give you the most precise adjustment possible.  

What conditions can Upper Cervical chiropractic care help with?

Chiropractic care is not designed to treat any specific conditions. Chiropractic is designed to locate and analyze vertebral subluxations, which are misalignments in the spine causing dysfunction in the nervous system.

Adjusting and correcting an upper cervical misalignment affects the brainstem, vagus nerves and other soft tissue structures like arteries, veins and connective tissues. This allows your nervous system to communicate properly with the rest of your body.

Common conditions that people seek upper cervical care for include:

  • Migraines​

  • Vertigo

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • Tinnitus

  • TMJ disorders

  • Chronic pain/fibromyalgia

Do you accept insurance?

We are currently out of network with insurance. We do however offer superbills, which are detailed invoices with diagnosis and treatment codes needed for submitting claims to your insurance. 

We believe everyone deserves access to specific upper cervical care. If investing financially in your nervous system health is something that seems daunting at the moment, please reach out to us to see how we can assist you. 

How frequently am I going to need to be seen?

Chiropractic care is a facet of health and wellness that lasts a lifetime. However, this does not mean that you should be getting checked and adjusted three times a week for the rest of your life. In the beginning of upper cervical care, the frequency of your visits will be a little more intense. This is usually a commitment of twice a week for 3-4 weeks depending on progress.

We use objective measures in our office to monitor progress and healing of your nervous system. This means that as you progress through care, you will need to be adjusted less frequently. Our average patient will hold their adjustments for a month at a time by the third or fourth month of care. At that point, individualized maintainance of your adjustments will be recommended.

 

The point of care is to get the alignment to hold for as long as possible so your nervous system can repair and heal itself.
